I can't offer you ARP for playing a Steam game but a chance to win a Steam key. To give you enough time for exploration the contest will be live from now until 24th February 24:00 UTC. That's why I don't open a thread in the Community Giveaway sub-forum as it's against the 72 hour rule.
This is how I thought this deep dive contest would make sense:
To verify your position on the leaderboard write in your comment the Steam account you want to participate with.
The game is prone to crash from time to time but don't worry it will remember the depth you reached before it crashed. To make it not too easy a monster is lurking in the abyss and will kill you if you don't pay attention.
The 10 best divers will receive a link to a SteamGifts invite only giveaway for Prey(2006) open for 24 hours after the end of the contest via private message on AWA.
So the chance to actually win the game is 1:10 for the best divers. You must have a SteamGifts account to participate in the giveaway obviously.
If you win you'll be immortalized on the leaderboard and be a member of the Prey(2006) Steam owners club
If you don't win you can still buy the game for very cheap on grey market sites. In this case it's the only way to still get the game besides outright piracy.
Why am I doing this? Well, I thought we might have some fun and Prey(2006) is a game I like very much and want to see played by as many people as possible. Besides I take a vow to buy the 20,000 Miles Under the Sea soundtrack DLC to show some appreciation to the devs for ab(using) their game.
Whelp, I guess actually making a fun contest where people have to put some work into it is old school. Sorry to see nobody has entered so far my friend :(
As you know I started my diving adventure when I saw you playing it and I really wanted to see how far I could go, but the crashes were a constant bother and thus I decided to suicide to the monster and go back to the ughh.. lower depths (?) to at least get my missing Steam achievements by finding more fishies.
I think this was a great idea, so please don't feel discouraged and keep up the good work :)
