Meet Saeran

WHY?

He’s a handsome man, with white blond hair, golden eyes, a large tattoo on his shoulder, but he has a large secret. He might be a smooth talker and quite charming, but he isn’t capable of loving someone. The problem being, he isn’t Human. He is a character from Mystic Messenger, a dating sim created by Cheritz. Characters like Saeran encourage the player of the dating sim to form relationships in order to win the game. Although this is just a sim, some players (coining themselves: dedicated romantic gamers) look at this as a new type of digital intimacy. As games and our opinions on robots change, this game might just turn into our reality.
