The lights are on
Creative gamers (and developers) utilizing video games as a means to propose marriage isn’t unheard of. That being said, Matt Gilgenbach went above and beyond modding a level to a preexisting game, instead crafting an entirely new co-op experience in order to properly propose to his girlfriend under the guise of playtesting.
Called A Mobius Proposal, the co-op puzzle platformer was designed over three months in complete secrecy. The end goal was to fake a low battery message, which would reveal a hidden ring tucked away in the controller’s battery pack.
Gilgenbach is the Co-founder of 24 Caret Games, an independent developer known for the 2009 IGF nominated game Retro/Grade.
