    Gamer couple sends awesome 8-bit wedding invitation (with video)

    Gamer wedding inviteI guess I like weddings. Not that I’m planning on having one myself on the near future, but I’ve always liked a good party and they generally mean a fun time and maybe some catching up with old friends. Even though I enjoy the parties, I rarely pay attention to the details, especially to invitations. I know people take a lot of time choosing the right one, but most times I already know the details of the wedding months before the invitation arrives so I usually just throw them away. (Sorry to anyone just finding out.)

    A couple in Germany have come up with an awesome idea for their wedding invitations. Instead of going with the boring, I mean traditional, paper or cardboard, they used a video game as an invitation.

    The game, called Darina and Niko’s Incredibly Adventure, is presented in a vintage-8-bit style and features a couple of stages where players can choose either the bride or the groom to rescue their significant other. The game takes inspiration from Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong and the reward for completing the game is the invitation to the wedding itself. As an ending, players get the date and directions to the wedding.

    Let’s watch a little of the invitation’s game:

    This is one of the best ideas I’ve heard in a long time. Aside from owning every other wedding invitation out there, this one provides a fun time while serving its original purpose. Besides, with this form of invitation you could get rid of some noobs. I guess if you can’t get through the final level, you’re not worthy of cake, and in this case, party.
