Reno, NV– March 16, 2011– The hit television format The Dating Game arrives this spring on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Friendster, Bebo, and Hi5. With all the flirty fun of the popular series, The Dating Game for social networks ( http://www.datinggame.com) revolves around a bachelorette (or bachelor) who must decide between three bachelors (or bachelorettes) based on compatibility through three rounds of lightly provocative gameplay. Featuring the popular late 1960s look and feel, 3G Studios has brought back that‘lovin’ feeling’ to social networkers all over the world!
“We have received great feedback from the beta phase of The Dating Game and have realized more than ever how many people have personal experiences or funny stories about their dating past that they love to share with others,” said CEO of 3G Studios, James Kosta.“We’ve enjoyed incorporating those humorous and provocative morsels of the real-life‘dating game’ into a light-hearted and fun virtual space and know that the social nature of The Dating Game will be an engaging interactive experience for people throughout the world.”
Just as in the show, The Dating Game consists of a main contestant and three hopefuls. The main contestant first answers a series of questions based on his or her personal preferences and then the three panelists must advance through three rounds of gameplay, including Question and Answer, Word Association and Ad Lib to win a‘date’ with the bachelor or bachelorette. In each round, the player whose answers most closely resemble those of the main contestant’s receives the most points and advances into the next round in the lead. Two types of rewards– points and hearts– can be earned or purchased and traded for in-game premiums, such as virtual gifts and special avatar features.
Importantly, this is not a dating site but designed to allow social networkers all over the world to play The Dating Game among their friends strictly for the fun of the flirty Q&A. Best of all, signing up and playing the game is free, so everyone can play whether single, married or“it’s complicated”!
