There’s no doubt that Tetris has played an important part in many people’s gaming lives growing up. Popping the cartridge in my Gameboy and playing the game for hours all whilst begrudgingly battling with motion sickness on long car journeys is certainly one of my fondest gaming memories.
A woman from Florida, however, likes the game so much that she is planning to marry it.
20-year-old Noorul Mahjabeen Hassan (who prefers to be known as Fractal Tetris Huracan) is planning to tie the knot with her favourite game of all time after she graduates. A commitment ceremony with friends in attendance will also be taking place.
Her love for the retro puzzler started in September of last year. Fractal explains how her affection towards Tetris manifested:
‘It started when I would play this game called Smash Run and I would hear the Tetris theme and I thought it was nice. Every time I heard it I would want to play Tetris. All I did was play this game and kept thinking I want to play Tetris. ‘I think Tetris is so beautiful, he is about perfection and he stimulates your mind. Physically I get that feeling that people in relationships get – that you know they are the right one.’
As well as Pierre (a calculator), Fractal has also had relationships with a Companion Cube from Portal, and an oscilloscope called Braxton.
