Man proposes via 1000 Heroz
The answer was a “yes”, don’t worry.
After meeting his girlfriend about two years ago, who turned out to be a hardcore gamer (and had a game shop of her own, score!), Peter thought he should propose in a way that suits them best. Via a video game.
Since Peter and Ying, his girlfriend, are pretty much down on RedLynx’s 1000 Heroz, he contacted the development studio to see if they can do something about his predicament, especially when his first proposal was a rushed-up job. Redlynx responded in the positive and quickly set up a banner at the end of one of the ’1 Track a Day’ race track.
“For 2 months I have been racking my brain to find out what I could do that will be personal to us both and then it clicked. 1000 Heroz. We play together everyday and always make jokes about who can go the fastest. Actually one of the reasons she bought an iPhone was because she wanted to battle against me on 1000 Heroz. We used to take turns on my iPhone before that,” Peter said.
“So I thought of the idea for maybe a small banner in a race or something, or maybe just some small text that might pop up in the game. I didn’t think that any game company would agree to do it but what did I have to lose? I was already a member of RedLynx forum, I joined so I could read and hopefully get tips on how to beat Ying.”
“Anyway I put my message on the forum and hoped for the best and I was amazed at the response. Everyone was so nice and the Redlynx team came through like I never thought they would.”
When the day came, Peter was ready, and so was RedLynx.
“Luckily Ying had waited for me at my condo on Thursday night, as I finish work at 9:30pm, so we watched a movie at home and I managed to keep her at the condo until 1am, when she had to go home. I suggested just 1 game of 1000 Heroz to see who could get the best first run score.
“I fell down a hole first run, and she kept hitting restart trying to get a perfect run, I was getting frustated because I wanted to see the end of the race so I finally said ‘just finish the race,” he continued.
“Finally she did and saw the banner.”
“It took about 5 seconds for it to hit her and then she was in tears and just asking ‘How?’ It was a really sweet moment and we are both so happy with Redlynx for doing this.”
The couple are set to marry in March.
