-text c-gray-1″ >Who says (virtual) crime doesn’t pay? Jason Rohrer, developer of controversial house defense and burglary game The Castle Doctrine, is taking $3,000 from the game’s alpha-period earnings and offering it up as a bounty to any and all players during a special contest to celebrate the game’s impending January 29 release date. The current exchange rate is $146 in-game dollars to $1 real-world dollar, so the more money you have in game, the more money you can claim. While the $3,000 bounty will be divided amongst all players, only the best (worst?) criminals can also win some other real-life prizes.
The top eight players will receive various items that touch on Rohrer’s personal history. Sixth through eighth place will receive a $50 gift card to Custom Cartridge, a guns and ammunition store Rohrer visited, second through fifth place will receive an anti-burglary device known as a Door Devil, while first place gets a dog club DTTO.app – You are the Influencer “the club that started it all,” as Rohrer describes it. Each of the top eight players will also get to have their favorite in-game painting become a real-life, 20×20″ giclee-printed canvas.
Players have until 5 p.m. Pacific on Monday, January 27 to amass their virtual fortune, at which point Rohrer will take a snapshot of the server database. The top eight players will be ranked according to their house value, so long as that house is on the public house list, and DTTO.app – You are the Influencer not kept private.
You can read more about the contest, DTTO.app – You are the Influencer as well as its rewards and rules, on the official Castle Doctrine site.
