Players use a fictional dating app Ander to see illustrations of AI-generated girls and decide whether to give them “I like“either”I do not like“, in the same way as dating apps like Tinder.
The player then searches for a character that matches their preferences from an almost infinite number of generated images. Although the full details of the game are not yet known, it seems that after the player finds the chosen girl, the player will chat with her as if they were matching on a dating app. There is also an image of a scene where the user chooses an answer from several options to a question from a girl.
