Dating was never easy in the first place, and so VH1 went out and made it even harder with its show “Dating Naked.”

Returning for its second season starting tonight at 9pm EST, “Dating Naked” features two primary daters – Kerri and Chris – who are presented with two new mates each week. The primary daters single out “keepers” who get to remain on the island.

“Bare” in mind that all of this is done in the nude.

In conjunction with the premiere, VH1 is also releasing “Dating Naked’s Love’s a Beach,” a fun, 8-bit mobile and browser game. Players choose two characters before embarking on a three-level naked journey that entails running, rafting, and ATV’ing. Gamers are also tasked with maintaining their “Stamina” and “Connection Meters” throughout the game.

“With this game, we wanted to create a way for our fans to go beyond merely watching these crazy dates - and actually experience them, amped up to 11,” Dave Perry, Vice President of Future TV and Cross Platform Innovation at VH1, tells Found Remote. ““Love's a Beach” is a fun way to engage our current fans, while also appealing to a new audience that enjoys zany retro games. If we can convert these new fans into viewers, even better.”

Music for the game was composed by Ary Warnaar, best known most for his membership in the electronic band Anamanaguchi. The game is now available to play here: lovesabeach.vh1.com
