Oberlin, OH, United States, 2006/08/28 - Treasure-Adventure launches innovative treasure hunt game contest inspired by the 1849 Gold Rush. Players can compete for $1,000.00 by solving puzzles and clues while exploring real treasure legends across America.
Treasure-Adventure announces the launch of Treasure Across America, its first online treasure hunt game and contest set to get underway on September 1, 2006. The game, inspired by the Gold Rush of 1849, will challenge players to traverse the American countryside from the eastern shore to California, exploring history and solving puzzles and riddles related to real lost treasure legends along their way in pursuit of a $1,000.00 grand prize.
The upcoming competition had been planned and announced on the Treasure-Adventure web site since early 2006, and "We are pleased to be opening the game to registrants on schedule, and hope treasure hunt lovers will find it unique, fun, and challenging, as the concept is different than other treasure hunt games currently available," said president Kaydee Grant.
She went on to explain, "No other treasure hunt game is like Treasure Across America, in that contestants will actually investigate and solve clues relating to real treasure tales of lost fortunes that history has told are littered throughout the countryside. Some hunters may even be inspired, like those during the Gold Rush, to set out on a quest to track down and uncover these long lost riches."
In the spirit of exploration and intellectual pursuit, the game is more focused on delivering content than graphical effects. This also ensures a faster download speed. Players will be challenged to rely on their wits, skill, creativity, and ingenuity – not chance -- as they traverse the nation state-by-state across any or all of three transcontinental trails solving clues surrounding legendary treasures to ultimately reach the California Gold Coast and capture the grand prize.
The game will be accessible publicly at the Treasure-Adventure.com website for all to explore and enjoy, although in order to enter answers in the competition for the grand prize, a small registration fee of $5 is required to cover administrative expenses, as further detailed on the Treasure-Adventure.com website. Deadline for entries is January 31, 2007. Players must be 18 years or older and U.S. residents.
Treasure-Adventure is planning to offer limited content-specific advertising and sponsorship space on its treasure hunt web pages.
