BioWare developer proposes to his girlfriend via Minecraft

So you think you're a romantic, eh? A regular Don Juan Demarco? Far be it for us to suggest otherwise, but after watching this Minecraft marriage proposal crafted by a developer at BioWare, you may feel inclined to step up your game.

The Minecraft level was created by a love-struck BioWare staffer named Joel Green (aka mcnerdburger) for a fellow dev, Heather Rabiatch, at BioWare's Edmonton studio (hence the “we build worlds together” references and above-average profiency with all those colored block things). The whole creation took Green a better part of 15 hours to create, after which he made Rabiatch play it through for a 'Valentine's Day' surprise.

Unfortunately, the video ends on a bittersweet note, announcing, “She said yes... then a creeper blew her up.”

Yeah, marriage will do that.

    Its like a mixture of rabies and biatch, its just one of the strangest names...

    Sorry to lower the tone and everything but am I the only one who's noticed she has the word 'biatch' in her name, thats reason enough to marry him. Great idea though.

    Common, he works at Bioware. He should have spoken with her between missions, and picked the option at the top of list every time. Then he should have done a quest for her. Then he should have talked with her a little bit more AND... oh wait, this is marriage, I guess this works for marriage.

    :) :) :) If only my girlfriend was a gaming nerd as well... @KnightDehumidifier I think a true renegade would add "just kidding heather. I still love you LOL." and then proceed with the krogan thing
  • KnightDehumidifier - February 16, 2011 1:09 a.m.

    Should've taken the Renegade option, and threaten to rip her balls off and feed them to a Krogan if she didn't say yes.

    Its awesome when people do stuff like this in video games. Like that guy (theres probably several) who proposed on LBP, and there was a YES or NO switch, and when she pulled YES, there was like fireworks and everything, and little hearts fell down hehe. Thats gotta be the coolest way, cause then you can replay it as much as you like. On Topic: D`awwwwwwwwwwww!
