Love is in the air, Guardians.
Since it launched over two years ago, Bungie‘s first-person-shooter/action RPG Destiny has seen several expansions, updates, special events, and additional content. Earlier this year for example, the folks behind the game brought a romantic atmosphere to the tower for Valentine’s Day. Just when you thought it’d be impossible to top the rose-petal filled “Crimson Days” update, Bungie secretly made it possible to propose to your significant other in the game–at least for two developers! Check out the adorable tweet below to see in-game screenshots of the tender moment.

Rami Ismail, game developer at Vlambeer (Nuclear Throne) shared the tweet above after Adriel Wallick (of Train Jam) proposed to him. Adriel coordinated the whole affair with Bungie. According Ismail’s Twitter account, the fun started after he went to the Postmaster and grabbed a note titled “A Letter From Adriel”, containing a heartfelt note and the official proposal.
As if that weren’t enough, Ismail received a legendary artifact called “The Ring of Eternity”. Yes, Bungie made an in-game engagement ring! As icing on the cake, the dev added a brand new emote which allows a player to get down on one knee in the classic proposal pose.

It’s unclear whether the experience and items will be available for other players, or if it was exclusive to Adriel and Rami. We’ve reached out to the couple regarding the proposal, and will report back with any updates.
What did you think of the proposal? Would you want to try it out? Do you have a special gaming-related proposal story to share? Let us know in the comments below, join the conversation on Facebook, or start one with me on Twitter: @Samantha_Sofka.
