We love video games as much as the next person, but admittedly never enough to feel compelled to enter a relationship, or even marry one of our favorite titles. However, Florida-based student Noorul Mahjabeen Hassan has openly claimed that she is not only in a relationship with her copy of Tetris, but plans to wed the retro puzzler.
The 20-year-old, who prefers to be known by her alias Fractal Tetris Huracan, identifies as objectum sexual, which means she is both physically and emotionally attracted to inanimate objects as opposed to fleshy humans.
Huracan has been smitten with her copy of Tetris since September 2016, and confirmed that she sleeps with the NES cartridge and partakes in various Tetris-themed activities with hard drives and cushions.
‘Part of the relationship is the satisfaction I get from clearing the lines and clearing them as quickly as possible,’ she commented (via Metro). ‘I prefer using a special site called Sprint which is clearing lines as fast as possible. My score is 49.53 seconds.'
‘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.'
As mentioned, Huracan is making preparations to marry Tetris, and will do so in a special ceremony with family and friends once she graduates.
