Would you trust the Commodore 64 to pick your perfect partner?

Certainly. It seemed to get everything else right.

MATCH MAKER - Romance software for the Commodore 64!

Post by Commie_User » 03/08/2011 - 18:51

I love my novelties: http://www.Leftiness.org/Match-Maker.zip


Social mobility via the Commodore.

The basic idea is to use the software for computer dating. With no actual online support. The book recommended finding your love match from dinner guests at a house party. Each enters their details and the computer pairs up.

So not a serious piece of software then, as shown by the warnings that the writers would not be responsible for dodgy pairings. Yet the software advertises that it was devised by a doctor of Psychiatry. Other titles may have been more practical.

These pieces of software seem quite rare. I've certainly never found them online before. But I think they hold some real value and are also very interesting curiosities. They certainly should never be lost, hence my uploads.

And when you've found that special someone, you can refer to Dr. Ruth's Guide to Good Sex...

I wonder how much good sex the beautiful enlightened people lost out on? Everyone else was just doing it whilst those who bought the game spent their time analysing it! Academic voyeurism I suppose.
