Guy Proposes to His Girlfriend With Awesome Video Game He Helped Develop [VIDEO]

In super adorable things that make our hearts melt, an artist named Robert Fink worked with friends to develop a pretty involved game called Knight Man in order to propose to his then-girlfriend Angel.

Congrats to the happy couple – and if you want to play the game, it’s here on Fink’s website!

The One Ring chandelier is front and center, but did you notice that the chairs have the White Tree of Gondor carved on them?

You Want to Watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lady Gaga Sing Baby It’s Cold Outside, Right?

Not gonna lie, I’m a bit disappointed that no Muppets put in an appearance during this Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lady Gaga duet. It was a part of Lady Gaga And The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, after all. But it’s a minor quibble. I want Muppets to be a part of everything, after all.
