Geek Proposes With Vintage Super Nintendo Game
The past few weeks have seen an explosion in super geeky marriage proposals. One IT supervisor from California went with an iPhone application, while Web geek Sean Bonner scored our favorite marriage request ever with a proposal via Twitter.
The latest in the fad of dork-tacular marriage proposals comes in a close second to Bonner's, if only because of its sheer nerdiness. A YouTube user, who goes by the name of TheRealPfhreak, hacked the ROM (basically a playable digital copy) of the Super Nintendo classic 'Chrono Trigger' and created a whole new area in the game for his girlfriend to explore. That's right, he hacked apart the game and added his own content, which is no simple task. He recreated Mount Baker in Washington (the site of their first date) in the game and littered the mountain side with NPCs (non-player characters) who reminisced about some of the couple's favorite memories together.
At the top of the mountain a knight named Phill introduces himself and rambles sappily about once having tried to catch the Sun for his maiden. Phill the knight then just blurts out a proposal. Apparently, TheRealPfhreak's now-fiancee responded by saying, "you're such a nerd," before giving him and enthusiastic "yes." Check out the clip above and visit the YouTube page for the creator's complete explanation (and a strangely alluring soundtrack). [From: YouTube, Via: OhGizmo!]
