Angela Washko Plays “The Game: The Game”

February 28, 2018 5:00 PM–6:30 PM

Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry,
College of Fine Arts Room 111,
Carnegie Mellon University

The Game: The Game is a video game presenting the practices of several prominent seduction coaches (aka pick-up artists) 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.

Free and open to the public.

This event showcases a project supported by the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier, an endowment to encourage the creation of innovative artworks by the faculty, students and staff of Carnegie Mellon University.
