Hey all. Hopefully I’m dropping this in the right place. I just thought I’d share my engagement proposal I put together for my fiancé a while back. The whole thing was Borderlands themed. I put a lot of work into it, and I’m too proud of it not to share it with the community and the makers of the game.
Here’s a link to the complete write-up to our little story with videos, screenshots, and photos:
And heres the short version of what you’ll read about:
• Made an iPhone mini app/game with the Borderlands’ styled interface. Has 8 missions, leveling up, and rewards. Included original sound clips directly from the game (interface SFX, Claptrap, and Tiny Tina).
• Made a custom iPhone case with the Echo Device design on it. Had to rework it a little in photoshop to fit with the shape of the iPhone case.
• 3D printed Shield Generator of my own design. And 3D printed loot crate to house the ring. I built them in Cinema 4D, and sourced out a local 3D printer.
• The whole thing was planned out in a way so that the “real live” Borderlands adventure game plotted out our 3 day vacation away. And the missions were each actions leading up to the proposal itself.
Down the road I’m thinking of making an entirely new version of it for a surprise anniversary or something.
I hope you guys like it!
