This Company Allows You to Marry a Digital Man
Since 2006, Voltage has been producing what is called ikemen — (otherwise translated as handsome men). These digital seducers, created for your smartphone, can be downloaded in groups of 8 to 20. Yuzi Tsutani, president of the company, calls this game a ‘romance application’.
Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can choose from various different profiles. The first episode is free, you choose your favourite man, and then live out your ideal love story in which you play the heroine, notes their website. After this, content is behind a pay wall, and over fifteen episodes you are able to live out various adventures with your digital partner. If you choose a ninja, you’ll be obliged to become a spy, if you choose a student, you’ll accompany him to sporting events. A yakuza? You’ll be hanging out in some dangerous areas.
Be him infantile, narcissistic, wet or creepy, these handsome men all have a problem that they need to get over. The game, from this angle, becomes more like a puzzle. Even if marriage is on the cards, nothing is simple.
Voltage is already a huge success, with over 60 million users in 2018 from all over the globe. Each new season brings with it new scenarios and new characters, providing all the material for a life-long romance.
