The OnePlus 6T is set to be unveiled on the 30th October, but that's not stopped the company from teasing us with all the fancy details. If you've liked what you've heard so far, you may be thinking of buying one for yourself. If that's the case, you may want to take part in OnePlus's new tapping-based game. You could win fabulous prizes, including a brand new OnePlus 6T or a brand new OnePlus device every time they release a new one.
The point of the game is to tap your screen to get your chance to win. It's that easy, like Cookie Clicker but with the chance to get yourself something out of it. Not just collect virtual cookies that you can't eat. Prizes include OnePlus accessories, a "once in a lifetime trip", a brand new OnePlus 6T, along with the spectacular grand prize. That prize being the aforementioned lifetime supply of OnePlus devices. Every time they release a new one, one of them will come through your letterbox.
To take part you need to head over to unlock.oneplus.com on your phone, and sign up with your email address. You'll eventually get a link sent to your email address, and clicking it on your phone beings up the game in your browser. It has to be on your phone, though, because trying on your desktop brings this up:
At the moment damn near everyone seems to be trying to get on, and the system seems to be struggling. I ended up with multiple invite links in my junk box that were written in Portugese, and the link itself currently keeps timing out. When it did work it took me back to the signup page, which is a little frustrating. So you're going to have to be patient if you want in.
In the meantime OnePlus is telling people to keep an eye on its social accounts to see what challenges are active when. I assume this means what prizes are on offer at any given time.
Update: This is what the game looks like when you finally get in, though if your experience is anything like mine you'll end up with everything written in a different language. This time it's Italian.
There's currently a goal on the corner too, challenging you to get to 60,000 taps. What happens then is unknown, though tapping away makes the game play some sort of funky-sounding tune. There's also a global meter, though it's equally unclear what happens when that fills up.
