Portal 2 proposal a huge success

There are a number of brilliantly nerdy ways to propose, but Gary Hudston has found a truly exceptional one. He created an entire Portal 2 mod to ask his girlfriend, Stephanie, to marry him. It's nice to see science being used for love - not evil.

The actual proposal doesn't happen until near the end. To see it, skip right to about the seven-minute mark. If The National song “Exile, Vilify” is playing, you'll know you've gone too far. To play the mod yourself head to Hudston’s site TopHATTwaffles, or just watch the video is posted below.

The GLaDOS in the video sounds authentic because she is. Hudston made the level with the help of Douglas Hoogland and Rachel van der Meer (Miss Stabby), who answered a request for help with a “secret project” on thinkingwithportals.com. After they had the basics up and running, Hudston contacted Valve, and they connected him with the real voice of GLaDOS, Ellen Mclain.

(Stephanie said yes.)
