Styled like a 1950’s style board game, GoodBoy invites us to play with gender stereotypes.
Ladies take the role of the bank manager and can debit and credit GoodBucks (the currency used in the game) as she sees fit. Gentlemen have to earn GoodBucks by completing tasks but can also spend them by claiming rewards.
Both players negotiate the values of tasks and rewards by making bids using GoodBucks. The current balance is displayed on a large central dial on both phones allowing each player to gauge how things are going.
“We joke that GoodBoy offers ‘man training’ for the ladies and ‘priceless insight into the female mind’ for the gentlemen. Many would say that’s politically incorrect but that exactly what makes it fun to play. Couples will no doubt gain new insights into each other when playing - which is sure to make their relationship more interesting,” says Matthew Byrne, one of the creators. GoodBoy is available for iPhones, iPads and iPod priced at $0.99/£0.69 in the App Stores. For more information please visit www.goodboyapp.com
