Gamer Hacks Chrono Trigger to Propose to His Girlfriend
Man, us geeks/nerds are apparently the most romantic beings in the universe. A couple of weeks ago we showed a video of a gamer using the LittleBigPlanet level creator to propose to his now Fiance. Now another gamer went even further. TheRealPfhreak hacked one of the best RPG’s off all time — Chrono Trigger and had his girlfriend play…Oh and she said yes!
After the jump, check out why and how he did it.
“Overall, it was a resounding success. She had no idea that this wasn’t part of the original. She asked, ‘Hey, are those the Princess Bride lyrics? Do the Japanese really love that movie?’to which I responded, ‘Yeah! That’s probably it! Either that or a bored translator slipping in an easter egg.’
When her name appeared on screen (blurred in this video), she glanced over to me (on one knee, with the ring out), wondering, ‘How did they get my name in this game?’When she saw the ring, she reread the proposal, nodded yes, and said, ‘You are such a huge nerd! I love this!’”
Yup, he certainly is a nerd and that’s why we love it! He even went into a little detail about how he did it:
“I built the area by fusing a pre-existing area (Denodoro Mountains) with concepts I had in my mind. Each NPC in the area (save the cat, and the young girl at the beginning) is supposed to be either myself or my fiance.”
Here at /gamer, we just want to congratulate you both and have a happy life gaming together.
