Tinder’s interactive series Swipe Night matches users based on decisions they make

Swipe Night will invite people to take part in a post-apocalypse story that twists and turns based on decisions they make at key points in the narrative – much like the classic interactive books.

But not only will the choices users make shape each five minute episode, which will air every Sunday in October, they will also dictate who they get matched with to chat with when the credits roll.

To add to the stakes, there will be a seven second time limit on every decision – the most critical of which will become a fixture of your dating profile so people know just how useless you would be in an apocalyptic world.

Karena Evans, who has directed music videos for rap star Drake, has been behind the camera for each episode, which have been shot vertically to suit a smartphone screen.

When it launches on 6 October, Swipe Night will mark the first time Tinder has featured streaming video.

Each episode will only be available for six hours, beginning at 6pm local time.

Tinder expects it to be especially popular with users aged between 18 and 25, and has tapped the writers of Netflix cartoon Big Mouth and HBO comedy Insecure to pen the script.

But despite people in Britain downloading and spending more money on dating apps than ever before, there are currently no plans to stream the show outside the US.
