Los Angeles, CA (December 11th) With boons in online dating and electronic gaming, its no wonder that both sectors would converge into new entertainment products, as is the case with Fantasy Date, a new service from MoConDi. Fantasy Date is a WAP-based interactive fictional mobile video dating game featuring role-playing features that lead players through hookup and relationship challenges.
Building upon MoConDi's pioneering successes with millions of game and video downloads worldwide, Fantasy Date is the first to incorporate the mobile web, gaming and mobile video into one experience. Its use of on-demand character control is optimized for Sprint PCS Vision's high-speed mobile network.
Fantasy Date players select a character, male or female, to whom they will try to seduce by reacting correctly to the different video situations presented. The revolving cast of characters keeps users engaged with a monthly change in the lineup of hotties to hookup with. The game is structured in several levels for every character, each level consisting of three video situations. After each video situation, the user is asked to choose among three options. Every choice prompts not only a score, but also a different video reaction from the character. The more the player presses the "right buttons", the more receptive the reaction of the character will be.
"Fantasy Date allows players to get their game on with a fun and original application providing carriers with a compelling new way to engage users and generate revenue," said J.T. Klepp, President and co-founder of MoConDi
According to Juniper Research, online dating and content uploaded to third party sites will increase from $572m in 2007 to more than $5.7bn in 2012. Demand for innovation in mobile gaming and dating services makes hybrid products like Fantasy Date, an interesting opportunity for carriers such as Sprint.
"Fantasy Date" is available exclusively on Sprint's wireless network for $2.99 and can be found in the "Chat & Dating" category of the Sprint homepage. A demo is available at http://www.mocondi.com/fantasydate/index.html.
