Video game proposal: Man develops game to marry his princess

OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -

The goal in plenty of video games is to save the princess. For one local man, that wasn't good enough.

He wanted to create a game that would lead to him marrying his princess.

Robert Fink works in the video game industry as a 3-D artist. His girlfriend, Angel White, is a web developer.

They love each other, and they love video games. When it came time to conjuring up a proper proposal, Fink set out to make a game of it.

Fink said he spent five months working on the project that would become Knight Man, A Quest For Love. He did the art design, while one friend handled the programming and another friend put together the musical score.

When it came time for the big reveal, Fink brought White to his office in Oregon City, SuperGenius Studios, and said she was going to be testing out a new game.

She had done it before, so nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

Then, after making it to the end of the game that Fink describes as a more basic Super Mario-like adventure, the real drama began to unfold.

As the hero approached the rescued princess, these words appeared on the screen: "I have searched far and wide and braved many dangers searching for my one and only. I believe with all my heart that I have found you."

White immediately began to react, but the next screen would blow her away.

"Angel White, will you do me the honor of sharing your life with me?"

Cameras captured her tearful, joyous reaction.

"I was so excited, and so happy and nervous, and just exploding with emotion," she said. "It was awesome and then just realizing that he made this, it was incredible."

In true video game fashion, White had a choice to make before finishing out her quest. The final screen asked her to choose, "Yes" or "No."

She, of course, picked "Yes."

The knight then carried off the princess as fireworks exploded in the background of the virtual world. In the real world, Fink had friends and family waiting in the wings to celebrate the proposal he made using pixels.

White wanted to share the game made for her by her new fiance, so she developed a website that tells their story and allows computer users to play Knight Man. It can be found at www.pixelproposal.com.

"It's really flattering to see people play it and say really nice things, and share it with the world," Fink said. "It's kind of surreal."
