Hi Buffalo gang! Instead of having a regular meeting this month we are teaming up with Squeaky Wheel to discuss and play Washko’s thought-provoking game, The Game.
The Game: The Game is a video game presenting the practices of several prominent seduction coaches (aka pick-up artists or PUAs) through the format of a dating simulator. In the game these pick-up gurus attempt to seduce the player using their signature techniques taken verbatim from their instructional books and video materials. The game sets up the opportunity for players to explore the complexity of the construction of social behaviors around dating as well as the experience of being a femme-presenting individual navigating this complicated terrain.
