Atlantica Online: Like our game, or we'll buy your character

I wonder if posting this will lead to a game developer going bankrupt. Only one way to find out!

Destructoid boss Niero discovered a bold advertisement for one of those small-time downloadable games that you see promoted on Web sites such as ours, Atlantica Online. Billed as a strategic turn-based MMORPG, distributor NDOORS is so confident you'll like their game, that if you can build your character to level 50 and claim that you hate it, they will buy your character from you for $20.

I am in the camp of people who regularly ignore these free-to-play MMO titles, but this is quite the wager. It also looks pretty graphically impressive for something that's free. That deserves at least a little gratis promotion on Dtoid.

Anybody going to accept NDOORS' challenge? I might give it a spin myself. Either I discover a good game, or I make twenty bucks. I'm pretty interested to see if this actually helps NDOORS or bites them in the arse.
