Dating apps like Tinder, Hinge and Bumble have become quite popular these days. The dating apps changed the conventional courtship game, letting people upload photos and other date-worthy details about themselves online and then hoping to find the right match for them. If you happen to be a gamer and would like your love mate to be one too, then this news might interest you. Yes, we are talking dating for gamers; more specifically, a dating and also, a social app that’s designed just for the niche gamer profile.
Kippo is the name of the app and it has received $2 million as venture capital from several parties, some of which were behind launching Tinder, as per a report by GameRant. The app is currently under development. On their personal profiles on the Kippo app, players can “feature a set of favorite titles” and also, information like “ a user’s Hogwarts house, Myers-Briggs type, or Pokemon-like cards for their pets.” The app will also have a built-in “moderation to weed out the negative interactions.”
Kippo aims to break the image stereotype of gamers being “basement dwellers”, as per the report. Gamers and the gaming community take their gaming –the colloquial fun stuff– quite seriously, something which many in the non-gaming crowd fail to identify with.
But Kippo is not just for dating purposes alone. You can find like-minded gamers too and make new friends there. Your gaming connections have a chance of getting an uptick, apart from finding potential partners.
