Meet The Willie Wonka Of Video Games

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Donald Mustard isn’t a household name but he soon may become the video game equivalent of Willie Wonka.

Mustard is the creator of the new Xbox game, Advent Rising, which will reward players with millions of dollars.

Starting tomorrow (Jun. 9), players who want moolah should search and click on a different “A” icon in the game each week. The icon will reveal a secret code, and the first person who reports it to each week will win $10,000 and up to $1 million when the contest ends six weeks from now.

Mustard spent more than a year working on the game and contest, and says there’s a “Golden Ticket element” that makes him feel like Willie Wonka.

Unlike Charlie Buckett, who won Wonka’s chocolate factory, the winner of the contest won’t win the headquarters of the game’s maker, Majesco Entertainment. But the player will win Mustard’s eternal admiration, and the cash.

In his words, “I’d love to meet the winner and pick their brain about the experience and what led them to look for the prize.”
