Unusual request

Hi Devs, my girlfriend and I are avid IOS game players and she is addicted to puzzle games on her iPod touch 4g. I'm getting ready to ask her to marry me soon and I was hoping to maybe pay a developer to add something to one of their games so when she finishes a certain level or reaches a certain score, a message would pop up asking her to marry me. I thought it would be incredibly cool and unique and I would compensate the dev for doing it. Someone could I guess give me an sdk of the game or something. Is this something anyone could help me with? Thanks in advance for any help! Joe.

Perhaps Sticktron can help mock up a fake game:

haha I thought of this recently.. would possibly be a good way to get some media attention too.

Of course if she is horrible at the game and never gets to the "will you marry me?" level than I don't know what to tell ya :P

Hi J.R. Jalapeno, our upcoming Tetroms (www.tetroms.com) game might be ideal for this! Are you still looking for someone to help? I would enjoy this as a one-off.

And of course, PopCap helped and supported everything instead of sueing his ass off.
I love these PopCap guys. Never saw a dev team with so much love and devotion for their fans before.

Absolutely!! That would be awesome. Thank you so much. I couldn't think of a better way to propose to her. The game looks like something she would love.
