This guy made a game to propose to his girlfriend

A 3D artist at SuperGenius by the name of Robert Fink went a step above for his marriage proposal: he created a videogame. "I couldn't allow myself to just do a normal proposal, it had to be special," he wrote. "Something we would remember forever to remind us where we started. Simple times playing games together growing up and learning that games can convey all sorts of emotion, I wanted her to see all the spikes I would jump over for her."

The game itself, Knight Man: A Quest for Love, is playable from a browser.

Fink, along with two of his buddies, developed the project in secret over the course of approximately five months while using the all-too-effective excuse of crunch time at work. When it was finally ready, he convinced his girlfriend to come playtest a new game at SuperGenius, culminating in the big question being raised in Knight Man, her saying yes, and family members and co-workers rushing in to congratulate the couple.

There's even a heartwarming reaction video. Just try not to smile at this one.
