BLIND DATING PLATEAU
There is a saying that the way of true love is not smooth. In the future, when the gender ratio is unbalanced and social pressure is increasing, people’s marriage is also facing great challenges. So in this special space, people will have a chance to meet and date. It is easy to play, players just use handles to control the direction, jump distance, jump height, journey and others. Thus, finally, blind daters need to jump over the floater in a relatively short time to reach the top area, and they can choose which one to date.
Moreover, players will have a good experience when jumping through these platforms, because there are dynamic and beautiful scenes and romantic music. And virtual blind date saves more time, but when you meet the right person, you can actually continue dating in the real world, wouldn't it be better.

JUMP FOR LOVE
Eric Klinenberg, a sociology professor at New York University, wrote in the book Single Society: "a single era is coming."
With the rise of celibacy, contemporary independent youth no longer regard their partners as necessary, their tolerance for the negative aspects of love has plummeted, and more people begin to call for "the freedom of not falling in love." Thus, we should encourage people to jump step by step, they need to have the courage to pursue their happiness, not just in the virtual world, but can start from the virtual world to feel it.
BLIND DATE PLATEAU REQUIRES YOU TO TAKE A LEAP...
THE ROAD TO LOVE IS A LOOP
Floating platforms are distributed along the passage, players should jump on the platform along with the passage space. When people jump in multi dimensional space, they can feel that different platforms are arranged in different positions, so they can experience different displacements. Don’t worry to be lost in the game, because the road of true love is like climbing towards the top of a mountain, you just keep going while listening to heart, and you will make it.

A DATING PLATFORM FOR MODERN YOUNG PEOPLE
More and more people are addicted to games. They believe that they can find themselves in games, so I wanna create a game that is not just for entertainment but also for blind date purposes. People are lack courage for love, so they need to jump, need courage, jump to find courage, and they will jump towards love.
JUMP IN PLACE
Players use the handles to control the direction of the protagonist’s jump, and the length of time to press the key determines the jump distance. Players control the protagonist to jump in a small area, and most jumps are more immersive and motivated than forward jumps.

Enter the room that I created before in hubs.
Floating water as a boundary, like a mirror, refracts and reflects light, the overall colours of the scene are blue, purple and light red which are intriguing and comfortable. And the environment will change with time, so players can experience the beauty, romance and mystery produced by the interaction of water and light in different periods of time. Plus the music effect is also warm and soft.
