This man proposed to his girlfriend by creating a custom video game about their relationship

In our bizarre, futuristic modern age, there are dozens of ways to shake up the traditional marriage proposal.

You could create a custom webpage, or hire a team of mariachis through Task Rabbit, or use Amazon’s Mechanical Turk to find an incredible poet who will write you a perfect sonnet — and then send that sonnet through Snapchat to your partner.

YouTube user “LAPike” took a different route: he created a video game.

In “Lolo’s Bizarre Adventure” (a play on the manga/game series “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure”) Lolo traverses a handful of 2D levels themed around the couple’s relationship. There’s a first date level, a road trip level, a trip to Portland, Oregon level, etc. The game’s not exactly PlayStation 4-level graphics, but it’s more than serviceable for the task at hand.

“Lolo’s Bizarre Adventure” culminates in the final scene, above, where a group of mariachis play “Nosotros” (roughly “us” in Spanish) and the game’s intrepid creator proposes in real-life.

So, does “Lolo” (real name Lauren) say yes? Take a wild guess!
