The “Dark Room” was a mobile app that suddenly became popular on Valentine’s day two years ago.
It adopts the holographic immersion experience.
You have to stick the access device at the end of either side of your eyebrow, close your eyes, let it load for 30 seconds, and then watch an advertisement to reach the registration page.
All adults with no criminal record in the real world can register in the “Dark Room”.
Their information will be quickly reviewed within two hours after submitting.
It usually takes only 10 minutes to pass.
After all, modern people are very busy and their patience is almost zero.
After passing the review, you can enter the character creation screen of the game.
New players have a default small room with only a full-length mirror.
There are various free and paid appearance features above the mirror.
They can dress themselves up as their ideal self by checking the available features.
From gender to figure, hair to pupil, and voice to muscle, it’s all up to you.
After setting up your avatar, you can start filtering the tags of the person you want to date.
As long as the tags chosen by both parties match, the system will automatically send a digital invitation to the mailbox outside the room.
After the digital invitation is opened, the virtual image of the other player will be projected into the room.
People who are familiar with the routine will also post some personal characteristics and hobbies to improve the probability of making a match.
After the two sides confirm their appointment, they can choose to visit different maps together, such as a karaoke room, amusement park, or a simple park … And they can also unlock easter eggs together.
It was said that the team developing the “Dark Room” just wanted to make an ordinary dating software at the beginning.
The initial version didn’t have many functions and dating maps.
Unexpectedly, as soon as the app appeared on the market, it received a surprising welcome.
The number of active users had exceeded 100,000 in an instant.

After half a year of crazy growth in the number of users, the servers of “Dark Room” upgraded again and again, and finally stabilized a bit.
What the “Dark Room” team didn’t expect was that their “dating app” was developing in a dirty direction at light speed.
With the exploding popularity of “Dark Room”, many players dating in the app want to meet in reality, setting off a wave of a “Dark Room” hookup trend.
Unfortunately, in reality, this trend didn’t continue and soon became quiet.
The reason was not external intervention, but the irreconcilable contradictions among users.
A strong man who can talk for three days and three nights in the app turned out to be a thin skeleton boy who can’t even speak fluently in reality.
The loli girlfriend, who is beautiful, cute, coquettish, and has first-class Kung Fu, turned out to be the Aunt Zhang next door.
How did traditional netizens get disillusioned when meeting in reality? It didn’t change in 2035.
After a player dated his father by accident, the sex partner trend of “Dark Room” was completely reduced to a pile of trash.
After tasting the bitterness of reality, the players decided to shift their attention back to the virtual world again.
In the beginning, Xu Youyuan deliberately tracked the ups and downs of various data of the”Dark Room”.
After the initial boom, the number of users and online time in the “Dark Room” fell rapidly.
Just when the industry agreed that half of the “Dark Room” had been buried, the “Dark Room” team launched a new version and access device.
It was the new features in the new version that made the “Dark Room” really popular in the next few years, spreading like a virus.
In the new version, with the addition of a few series of new maps, the “Dark Room Somatosensory Chip” was put on the shelves.
The price of this chip was 66 yuan, which was very cheap.
The purpose of the team was very clear, they wanted every user of “Dark Room” to be able to afford it.
In fact, that somatosensory chips were powerful and practical to a large extent.
Never mind 66 yuan, 666 yuan, or even 6666 yuan, people would still buy them at the cost of their homes.

This chip was very tempting.
As the name suggests, the function of somatosensory chips was to make the game realistic to the extreme.
As long as the chip is inserted into the access device, you can experience all 5 bodily senses in the game.
Officially, the somatosensory chip is an extra cosmetic so that players can follow and immerse themselves in the game.
All body sensations are like real experiences, unlocking the senses of all parts of the human body without any danger.
One specific point was very clear – the senses of all parts.
It’s almost like writing the subtext on the surface: don’t bother to make an appointment offline.
Isn’t it bad enough? We’ve prepared for you.
Let’s go straight to the APP.
Use your favorite image to make an appointment with your favorite player and enjoy yourself in all kinds of romantic scenes.
There was no problem with sex.
It not only unlocks all senses, but also can freely adjust the rhythm and intensity to experience perfect sex love.
The invention of somatosensory chips has truly established “Dark Room” as the king of APPs in the world.
Whether you want a perfect and exquisite love or a hearty love, the “Dark Room” can provide both.
Since then, no one cared whether the people on the other end of the network were male or female, fat or thin, and poor or rich.
As long as they can look at each other in the app and spend a good time together, no one will go deep into it.
There was even another saying on the Internet, which called the real human body as the maternal-fetal body.
The maternal-fetal body violates human rights without one’s consent or giving people any choice.
The image in APP was the spiritual body, which in the “Dark Room” was the most real and fair image – after all, the free appearance of the “Dark Room” was very rich and beautiful, enough for players to dress up a satisfactory appearance and sprinkle aesthetic interest – so people took the image in the “Dark Room” as the standard.
This view was naturally absurd to middle-aged and elderly people born in 2000 and the last century, but it was deeply supported by young people.
For many young people, the “Dark Room” was their happy paradise.
In society, this app has different praise and criticism.
It also seems to have become a symbol of corruption, only frivolous people will look for passion in the app.
Most people will not admit that they have a “Dark Room” account, although they may spend a lot of money to have the latest appearance in the “Dark Room” and have already gone on countless dates.
“I didn’t start out looking for a one-night stand.
The relationship game I planned with Sister Lu was a simulation game that focused on character development and didn’t involve adult content.” Xu Youyuan said, “I just want to find that ‘feeling of love’ in the Dark Room, and my name won’t be in other people’s mouths.”
“At first… It will be better if you don’t emphasize at first’.” Shi Ye was unsteady, “so, what happened next? I really didn’t expect Xiao Yue to have a ‘Dark Room’ account”

“Why? Don’t you have it too?”
“I’m different.”
“What’s the difference?”
Shi ye thought about it and felt a little ridiculous: “Maybe it’s because she’s my little sister.
I watched her grow up little by little.
Suddenly, it involves the topic of adults.
It’s a little embarrassing and I don’t want to accept it.”
Xu Youyuan knew that Shi Ye had been in the ivory tower for a long time and was devoted to learning.
Relatively speaking, her mind was simple.
Xu Youyuan could understand her.
In that case, there was no need to say more about the future.
Xu Youyuan was a little tired: “Forget it, I don’t have to say what happened later.
You can guess eighty or ninety percent yourself.
I’m going to head back, my legs are sore.”
Xu Youyuan was about to leave when Shi Ye grabbed her.
“What do you mean guess eighty or ninety percent! No one is allowed to leave today if you don’t explain everything clearly! “
Xu Youyuan couldn’t laugh or cry and was tied in place.
Shi Ye demanded that she be thorough, not to miss any details, and tell her everything.
A month ago, in the “Dark Room”.
Xu Youyuan applied for an account long ago in order to learn about the industry news.
After a rough experience, she didn’t log in again.
As a middle-aged person with a stable life, Xu Youyuan basically hadn’t changed her phone number over the years.
It’s easy to find the account she originally created.

She inserted the somatosensory chip into the access device and closed her eyes.
Xu Youyuan saw a large blue ocean.
The soles of her feet had a cold touch soaked by seawater.
The sound of the wind with the rippling seawater was very realistic, even the smell of sea salt was in the air.
There was a small spot on the sea level.
The small spot becomes larger at an amazing speed in her field of vision.
It explodes into the sky with a “bang”.
It was a brand-new airship produced by the CLEAN company, Deep Space 3X.
The huge black body of Deep Space 3X was suspended in the sky, covering more than half of the blue sky.
Xu Youyuan, splashed with seawater, looked at several rows of golden characters in front of her.
“The first batch registration for a deep tour around Venus has begun! The preferential social feedback price is 39,999 USD per person.
Log in to the official website for a 10% discount.
The fourth person of the whole family is free.
Click to enter and witness the true face of Venus.

Xu Youyuan waved to the advertising screen, and the golden font approached her.
She raised her hand and clicked “details”.
After reading it for a while, she was really touched.
She was one of the first tourists to Mars.
It was a honeymoon trip with Xiao An, although Xiao An wanted to go to the Maldives more to bask in the sun and seawater at that time.
In a twinkling of an eye, mankind had conquered another planet in the solar system.
Xu Youyuan was still very interested in interstellar travel.
Unfortunately, the price of Venus exploration discouraged her now.
The 30 second advertisement soon ended, and the surrounding scene darkened.
When she could see it again, she stood at the door of a room.
The room was like any ordinary hotel room.
The door was inlaid with a string of numbers, “12312312”, which was her room name.
Many young people spend a lot of time on room names and nicknames in order to make themselves different from others.
Xu Youyuan didn’t have this idea at all.
It’s just a code.
Now the name of the room was typed on the keyboard with her eyes closed.
Xu Youyuan’s nickname – “Nothing”, with a white background and a blue edge floating on her head.
She entered the room with the password that had not been changed in forever.
Standing in front of the full-length mirror, looking at her beautiful, 20-year old face and wearing a simple white camisole and underwear, Xu Youyuan wanted to order a few appearance features at random.
But thinking about why she came to the Dark Room, she hesitated again.
If you want to make a good game, it was definitely not just to induce consumption.
If you want others to immerse themselves in the game experience, you should first do it yourself and believe it.
Does she still believe in love? Not sure.
But she wanted to try, just like when she was in her teens and 20s when she was full of desire and curiosity about the world.
