If you aren’t already aware, dating app Tinder introduced last week an apocalyptic video game that will help you find a match. And if you haven’t played it yet, you’ll get a chance to this Sunday.
The game, known as “Swipe Night,” is an interactive video that lets users decide the main character’s choices.
Launched on Oct. 6, the first five-minute portion of the game asked players to attend a party and decide what to do as a comet barreled towards the earth.
The choices you make at the end of the world say a lot about you, let’s see what yours say👀— Tinder (@Tinder) October 2, 2019
What would you do if you had 3 hours left until the end of the world?
Players have just seven seconds to make a decision, otherwise, Tinder will make a choice for them. Each Sunday game will be available to U.S. users from 6pm to midnight local time and will continue throughout the month of October.
The game is designed to match up users with other players who made the same decisions they did. The game also offers users a conversation starter on the busiest swiping day of the week.
“After each Swipe Night episode, your critical choices from the story will be added to your profile, showing which decisions you did or didn’t make to your potential matches,” Tinder says. “All of this new info will make for plenty of material for post-apocalyptic banter. If you prefer to keep this info private, you can do that by editing your profile.”
While the first game has already passed, a short recap will be available this Sunday as Swipe Night’s second installment begins.

Tinder enlisted the help of Karena Evans, known for her work on music videos for Drake, to direct, while TV show writers Nicole Delaney and Brandon Zuck crafted the screenplay.
The game has received high praise from critics and regular Tinder users alike and is intended to appeal to the app’s Gen Z users.
