OMG! The First Person To Beat This Game Will Win 1 Bitcoin
While most games often reward gamers with digital items or unlocking achievements at the end of the game, a new puzzle game which was released on Tuesday (20) simply wants to go further: as it promised that it will give a bitcoin to the first player to unravel all its riddles.
With the suggestive name of Montecrypto: The Bitcoin Enigma, the first-person exploration game contains “24 complex puzzles,” according to its Steam page. Players can share the discovered clues or, if they prefer, leave false clues to delay or disrupt their opponents by treasure hunting.
Montecrypto: The Bitcoin Enigma was released for $4.49, but until next Tuesday (27) can be bought for $2.69 thanks to a generous launch discount. Until the publication of this article, the game already counts on almost 2,500 players, according to the site SteamCharts.
Considering its value, the first player to finish Montecrypto can receive a nice prize, since 1 bitcoin is costing more than $10607.97 in the current quotation. After that, the game can continue to be played, but without the prize for who completes it, and with the steps and clues of who managed to unravel the mystery first and can be visualized in the game itself.
According to the official site of the game, one of the inspirations for the creation of Montecrypto: The Bitcoin Enigma came from the French treasure-hunting book On the Trail of the Golden Owl, published in 1993. Anyone who discovered their tips and solved their puzzles would get the location of a gold owl statue buried by one of the authors of the book. However, still today the golden owl was not found.
To increase the mystery, developers will only reveal their identities when the winner receives their prize. According to them, the game does not use your PC to mine bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.
