Although video games are more popular than ever, having a strong attachment to the medium remains somewhat of a social stigma. At their worst, gamers bring this scorn upon themselves, but many people who enjoy video games may also enjoy romantic relationships. Kippo is a mobile dating app that allows you to put your fandom front and centre and connect with other people who share your passion. That concept has the potential to become niche, pandering, or embarrassing. Fortunately, Kippo is a slick and capable service that allows you to express yourself in your own unique nerdy way. Kippo is one of our Editors’ Choice picks for dating apps thanks to a fascinating new social hub feature that strengthens the service’s already distinct identity.
Start the programme.
Kippo is a dating app that is only available on mobile devices. It was tested on an iPhone 11, but there is also an Android version. There is no web version, and signing up requires a phone number. You can read cute comic strips about dating as a gamer on the Kippo website, but that’s it. While mobile is the most convenient way to use a modern dating app, most other services, including Tinder, an Editors’ Choice winner for dating apps, at least offer a desktop alternative.
Kippo immediately impresses with its visual style. Kippo has a tastefully futuristic aesthetic with black backgrounds and splashes of pink, glowing electricity, which avoids looking gaudy. Typing messages and profile information is similar to writing code in a text editor, albeit with bouncy animations. Furthermore, the flavour text has personality without becoming cringeworthy.
Creator of Characters
When you create your profile, you enter the same information that you would enter into any other dating service, such as your age, location, and gender. You must submit four genuine photos of yourself. Kippo also allows you to identify as nonbinary or to broaden your dating pool to include “everyone.” You can specify whether you’re looking for friends or business, and you can restrict access to your inbox so that you don’t receive unsolicited messages.
