A man wanted to propose to his girlfriend, and he came up with a one-of-a-kind way to ask for her hand in marriage. To propose, he custom built a video game.
What do you do when you want to ask your girlfriend to marry you? If you are a Redditor who goes by the name Marchaka, you build a video game from scratch.
Well almost from scratch. Making a modification to an existing game would not do, however, he built a one-of-a-kind game called "Michele's Quest" which took 164 hours to design. He used a $70 role-playing game maker called VX Ace.
Marchaka wanted to ask his girlfriend Michele to marry him. Both of them share a love of video games, so he decided to propose via a video game, according to Yahoo! News.
Describing it as a 4-hour game to play, he also said his game is "packed with inside jokes" and other fun video game references.
"This is how I did it... I made an old school final fantasy style role-playing video game, playable on the PC. The game featured 4 bosses and after killing each boss, a chest was dropped that revealed an image. Each image showed the location of a key. (hidden in real life)," Marchaka wrote. "Next to the computer was a chest with 4 locks on it, inside the chest was a note for her to turn around. So after completing the game and unlocking the chest, she spun around to find me on one knee."

Reportedly, since his proposal went viral online, Marchaka has made "Michele's Quest" available for download.
In case you were wondering, Michele said "yes".
Last year a man created an elaborate proposal, which he referred to as "Live Lip-Dub Proposal". The proposal involved 60 people to carry out. A video of the proposal was uploaded on YouTube and went viral. To date it has 19,560,893 page views.
