GLaDOS Pops the Question in Modded Portal 2 Levels

Gary Hudston proposes to his girlfriend with custom Portal 2 levels and official GLaDOS lines courtesy of Valve.

QUADs and epic loot come easy to a gamer, but what if you need to propose to your girlfriend? If you were like Gary Hudston--whose girlfriend Stephanie shared in his obsessive love of the Portal series--you would post a want-ad on a popular modding community, Thinking with Portals, for custom Portal 2 levels that lead to a wedding chapel.

Besides getting some elaborate levels done by several mappers, Hudston also contacted VALVe and asked if he could put custom lines into the levels. VALVe did not only approve, they brought in Ellen McLain, the voice of GLaDOS (your in-game AI-construct nemesis), to create new game dialogue and to pop the question. And yes, Stephanie said "yes". It seems like game developer created engagement proposals are becoming a fad, like this one done by a Claptrap from Borderlands.

The developer has made the levels available so you can play them too. To get started you will need to move files into your Portal 2 directory: Put the VPK in "addons", and Biks in "media". Start the game up, and once you're in, you'll need to pop open the console and input "map la_bringing_together."
