Darina explains: "We knew that we didn't want standard paper invites. We wanted something for people to keep and remember. We are geeks. We love video games. Why not have a video game invite?" The video games have two player choices, you're either the bride or the groom. And the goal is to get to the end to see all the wedding info. So here's what it looks like… Playing as Darina: Related Post Count the fandoms that hide in these awesomely nerdy wedding invitations Natasha's epic Pokémon proposal rocked our nerdy worlds, so when we saw her custom video game-themed and nerdy wedding invitations, we had to share. They... Read more Playing as Niko: It's worth noting that the games start by asking the user to say whether they've ever played a video game before. We're guessing that if the user selects NO, that the game plays itself. 🙂 The invitations/games come in jewel cases with informational booklets, and the cd also contains… "…an original soundtrack and outtakes (it took me two hours to get the "I'm sorry Niko…" line straight). It also promotes our awesome singing skills, by singing not only the wrong tune, but also the wrong words of the Soviet hymn." Check out the packaging that the bride and groom also designed themselves: For those of you who are interested, here's where you can download and play the invitations! You can download it with Windows, or, using Wine, with Linux and Mac. If their invitations are this geeky-cool, I can not WAIT to see their wedding porn!

Above and beyond every level of awesome I could ever think of. It even got a mention on my local paper's website! (http://www.ottawasun.com/news/weird/2010/03/04/13… Reply Freaking COOL!! I want that one!! Reply just saw this on aol.com news, what a super cool idea!! Reply WOW!!!!! Reply Wow, so freaking amazing. Reply Super cool …. but the music is NOT original: The beginning is the c64 tune of "Human Race", composed by Rob Hubbard, see e.g. . The game music is also Rob Hubbard, but I can't recall what game it is from — download HVSC (Collection of all C64 Sid Music) if you care. Bottom line: Super cool; but bad karma for not giving proper music credit! Reply Hey "no one," I believe the "original soundtrack" that they're referring to is their goofy group sing at the end of the video game. So no worries — their karma is still totally in tact. 🙂 Reply Crazy Comets Reply That is absolutely awesome! I am having my reception at a gaming pub I would love to have invitations like those!! 1 agrees Reply Thanks ever so much for adding these invitations, they are really delightful. 😀 Reply Also, downloaded the video game, and am addicted. I keep playing it when I'm meant to be studying. Reply Like it – very creative! We took a slightly off-beat approach for our wedding invites too – our challenge was how to get snow into the invitation! Click on my name to see how we did it… Reply This is just awesome! I really can't wait what would transpired on the wedding itself. I'm sure it'll be totally fabulous! I wish I could have done this on our wedding last year. 🙂 Reply That is just so so so so COOL, ALL THE BEST TO YOU. I DO Reply OMG – so gorgeous! Reply How can we do this too?! I want to send out these invites! How can we do it? Reply Awesome wedding invitations! Reply These are so cool and original! I realize I'm late to the game with this post, but I have some friends obsessed with video games who are getting married and these would be perfect for them! He even proposed to her over Twitch while playing video games, so this is right up their alley! 😀 Thank you!! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
