Where Manimals excels is the synergy between performance, application, and audience interaction, vastly succeeding where others falter.

Michelle, a successful game designer, thinks she’s well on her way to winning the dating game when she starts going on dates with Manimals – men posing with exotic animals in their dating profiles. But when you try to win a partner at all costs, what do you lose?
