Rovio Creates Custom Angry Birds Level for Wedding Proposal

Stories like this makes us all smoochy. Have your tissues ready!

Angry Birds addict Ben contacted Rovio to see if they could help him propose to his girlfriend, Melissa. To Ben’s surprise Rovio’s developers agreed. They made him a custom Angry Birds level with the message “Marry me Mel”. Now, the big question is, did she say “yes!”? Watch the video to find out. There is also more backstory over at the Huffington Post.

Week You can now actually play this level yourself! Also, be sure to check out our walkthrough!

A big thanks to @benlevi for stopping by and becoming a new member of ABN!

Rovio, maybe we could twist your arm for a custom level for Nesters? Or how about a full game? Yeehaw! :)

That’s nice. A marriage proposal thru the power of the Angry Birds. Doesn’t get much better than that. ;-)

That was sweet story. What is amazing is what Rovio did for Ben and Mel. They took the time in their busy work day to do this kind gesture. Nice touch at the corporate level.

My romantic side says “How sweet”,

But my cynical side says – “Oh look, it’s shows Angry Birds Friends when they are releasing a new app.”

I hope it’s true though.

If Rovio just open a custom level service (like birthday for someone, congratulations, etc.) and the level gets on like the one in the video, that would be nice.

How about a custom level editor so everyone could make their own custom levels like the ones in the video ;)

Hey all Im Ben – the guy in the video!! (I just joined ABN). Thank you so, so much for the wonderful comments. Mel and I are so happy.

To the cynics… yes I proposed about a month ago through AB Friends….. but had to keep it all quiet until AB Friends was actually released!! Rovio were absolutely AMAZING to deal with, but obviously they like their PR campaigns too ;) I wrote a small piece on the day. You’re very welcome to have a read if you like!! http://benjamin.co/angry-birds-propose/

Why does the heart and the name “BEN” made of stone blocks not fall down?
@benlevi: How often did you play this level? I guess you have the highscore now.
I love the engagement ring in this level, so sweet.
