PointCrow, a YouTuber and modder known for their work on Breath of the Wild has sent out a challenge to the modding community. Anyone who can make a Breath of the Wild multiplayer mod that, among other conditions, can support four players will be given $10,000.
PointCrow has created and played a variety of Nintendo game mods on his channel, such as a Doorsanity randomizer for Pokemon Emerald (which randomizes where each door in the game goes) and completing Breath of the Wild despite being randomly teleported every five minutes. However, despite the fact that it has been out for years, there's still no Breath of the Wild multiplayer mod. PointCrow is hoping to change that by offering a $10,000 incentive to the modder or team of modders to create this mod.

As PointCrow explains in a Google Document, the Breath of the Wild multiplayer mod should be a free mod able to support four players with their own inventories. In addition, the players would have no restrictions on map movement and the game wouldn't have to start from the Shrine of Resurrection. Preferably, players would begin after completing the Great Plateau and getting the Runes and Paraglider. This bounty does have a deadline, albeit an uncertain one, of two months before the release date of the Breath of the Wild sequel. If the mod is made, PointCrow would stream/play it exclusively for a week or two before offering it to the public in his YouTube video, similarly to the Pokemon Emerald map randomizer.
