Description

A Möbius Proposal is a co-op puzzle platformer that Matt Gilgenbach created in 2010 to propose to his wife. The main design goal was to create a game where communication and teamwork are important because they are essential for a marriage. The game takes place on a Möbius strip because despite appearing two sides, it actually only has one. This is a good metaphor for the unity of marriage.

History

When proposing, Matt wanted to do something very memorable. Since video game development is what he is best at, he decided to create a game to propose to his girlfriend (now wife). Initially, he was planning do to a Zelda ROM hack, but he thought it would be better to create something original that would be an expression of his feelings.

Features

  • Features cooperative puzzles solved by the two players hammering blocks between the sides of the Möbius strip (the demo features a single player mode)
  • Matt created all aspects of the game by himself, so it would truly be an expression of his love for his wife
  • Matt hid the wedding ring in the battery pack of his girlfriend’s controller and scripted in a message about her battery dying to pop the question
