The Swipe Night story is a first-person, apocalyptic adventure where at key turning points, Tinder members decide what happens to them next. Players choices dictate more than just the story; they also impact who they match with and what they will chat about once the epic journey ends. Now that half of Tinder members are Gen Z (18-25), we’ve built an entire experience that speaks their language. We can’t think of a better way to break the ice than over emojis and the apocalypse.
From 6 p.m. - midnight, any active Tinder member in the U.S. had the chance to experience the apocalypse together. Because, let’s face it, if we knew the world was ending, we wouldn’t want to go it alone. Swipe Night follows a group of friends played by Angela Wong Carbone (Chinatown Horror Story), Jordan Christian Hearn (Inherent Vice), and Shea Gabor, led by none other than you.
As the story unfolded, you’ll face moral dilemmas and practical choices, with only seven seconds to decide and no going back.
After each Swipe Night story release, critical choices will be added to members’ profiles, showing which decisions potential matches did or did not make. And all of this new information will make for plenty of material for post-apocalyptic banter.
