OnePlus has only just taken over global tech news today with its announcement of the OnePlus TV, but it looks like we aren’t done for the day when it comes to the Chinese smartphone maker. The latest announcement from the company is OnePlus Crackables, a gaming challenge targeted at mobile gamers. Described as a series of crypto-challenges for gamers around the world, the contest has a rather tempting grand prize: a $30,000 (Approximately Rs 21,00,000) high-end gaming setup.

The contest game has been developed in collaboration with Google and Sleep Deprivation Lab, a company engaged in concepts for video games and other creative projects. The game will offer players a series of challenges which will require skill to crack quickly, in the form of puzzles. The game is only available on Android smartphones and is open for all to play, and isn’t limited to OnePlus phones.

The game can be found on crackables.oneplus.com, and will go live on September 18 at 5:30PM (IST). The first 1000 players to complete the first three challenges will progress further, and will receive a micro-controller which will enable them to continue with the game.

While the grand prize has been described as a high-end gaming setup, we aren’t entirely certain of what it will be. It could be a gaming PC, but there’s also the possibility of gaming consoles or OnePlus smartphones and accessories being including in the setup. The game is a little under a day from going live, but gamers around the world will be looking forward to participate, particularly considering the value of the grand prize at stake. OnePlus says that more prizes will also be handed out during the course of the game.
