Crypt of the NecroDancer has been a hit on the indie games market for a few years now, with players particularly enjoying the game's procedurally-generated content and engaging dungeon-crawling action. It's safe to say the title was a labor of love for the development team at Brace Yourself Games, and that notion is particularly true now, as head artist Ted Martens discovered when he played a custom build of the game only to find a special marriage proposal from his girlfriend.
Along with the help of several members of the Brace Yourself crew, including lead designer Ryan Clark and composer Danny Baranowsky, Martens' girlfriend Liselore managed to sneak in a special wedding-themed remix of the game's first-level track and a reveal for the big question.
Big thanks to @braceyourselfok, Oliver and @dannyBstyle for helping me out with a custom build of @NecroDancerGame and a remix wedding song of the 1-1 level! <3 i="" let="" a="" surprised="" href="https://twitter.com/ted_martens?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" data-mce-href="https://twitter.com/ted_martens?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@ted_martens play the game as me until he found a key to a door, some coffee, Ted zombies and a ring! pic.twitter.com/w87Bn48B8u— Liselore Goedhart (@lizzywanders) January 3, 2018
A proposal is a big deal, and it goes without saying that most want to make the occasion as special as possible. For a gamer and game developer, sneaking a proposal into one's own game is about as good as it gets. Fortunately for all parties involved, it seems the plan worked out well.

They say that marriages follow in the style of their proposals, and from what can be seen here, both parties here acted with creativity and aplomb. Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Martens!
