OnePlus, along with Google launched a contest starting tomorrow called OnePlus Crackables. The first teaser for it hit the web last week, and it revealed little in the way of what it would be. Today, we’re getting some details on what exactly to expect.

Only the first 1000 people to make it through the first 3 challenges will qualify to continue and have the microcontroller sent to them to become a potential winner.There will be opportunities to win prizes at multiple stages in the game, but only 1 will be awarded the grand prize, an ultimate gaming setup, valued at $30,000.
The game is played directly on your smartphone through the web browser. The first 1,000 players who manage to get through the three initial challenges will then be sent physical controllers which will be required to continue in the competition.
