Arranged!

Arranged! is a game that forces participants to confront the struggles of an arranged marriage and other South-Asian cultural norms, including skin whitening, secret boyfriends, and dowries.

The gameplay involves a matchmaker trying to get teenage girls married off to any and every boy she can find, while the boys try to run away from her, and a potentially loveless marriage. They can do this by talking about having a career, gaining weight, being seen in the mall with boys, or several other things that many societies consider normal, but that can be seen as disgraceful in South-Asian culture.
