If you use Dropbox, and love free extra space (and who doesn’t), get ready for the 2012 round of Dropquest! In case you missed it last year, Dropquest is a game in which you have to complete a series of riddles, tasks and puzzles, and if you manage to do so, you win a staggering 1GB addition to your Dropbox storage space for life.
This year, Dropquest will launch on May 12, at 10AM PST (17:00 GMT), at which time the official will become available (if you click it now, you’ll get a 404). According to Dropbox, this year’s quest will be even harder than last year, but there are glorious prizes waiting for those who can complete it first.
Aside from the 1GB of storage awarded to anyone who finishes the quest, Dropbox will also give away a Dropbox employee hoodie, a limited edition Dropbox Hack Week t-shirt, a Dropbox drawing signed by the entire Dropbox team, an invitation to help write the next Dropquest, 100GB/20GB/5GB/2GB extra storage for life, and other goodies. These prizes will go to the chosen few who manage to complete all tasks in the quickest times.
So sharpen your brains, browsers and pencils, and get ready for May 12. Other than the free space, we all need a good challenge every now and then. Good luck!
