Romance New York City's Hottest Mayoral Candidates Or Die Trying

Are you ready to lie, cheat, and gerrymander your way into your favorite centrist’s loving arms? Ranked Choice Dating is a new, daring, and degenerate dating simulator where you’ll make choices that test your wit, charm, and lack of consideration for human life to get with the NYC 2021 Democratic Mayoral Primary candidate of your dreams. 


  • Settle for New York's finest representatives. You'll go on dates with four dateable candidates. 
  • A DaBaby collab or a #YangGangBang? There's nothing like choosing the lesser of two evils. To get with your dream candidate, you'll have to make choices that decide the fate of the city. 
  • From the ratholes of NYC's sewers to the mind-numbing wealth of Times Square, you'll traverse 6 different locations on your quest to moral degeneracy
  • What the heck was that dripping noise? RCD is complete with sound effects and 8 unique soundtracks to help you cope with everything, really. 
  • If you've ever wanted Andrew Yang's kissable cheeks (the face ones) on your ceiling, now's the time. Our game has 10 unique endings, each with their beautiful unlockable photocard.
