Around the Hellraiser chapter a case is emerging that the voice of Doug Bradley who was originally present in the PTB, was removed for a collaboration between the owner of Hellraiser’s IP, and Behaviour Interactive, with a distributor of NFT, Boss Protocol, to sell exclusive in-game content (including Doug Bradley’s lines of dialogue) to the first 10,000 users who will purchase the NFT.
But let’s go by order, what are the NFT?
"A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger (blockchain). NFTs can be used to represent easily-reproducible items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files as unique items (analogous to a certificate of authenticity), and use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership. Copies of the original file are not restricted to the owner of the NFT, and can be copied and shared like any file. The lack of interchangeability (fungibility) distinguishes NFTs from blockchain cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin."
It all started when the Dead by Daylight community discovered this website:
As you can see, they promise exclusive content, including a butterball skin, to those who will buy this NFT for about $250, telling them to work with other horror world licenses like Evil Dead and Friday the 13th, as well as of course Hellraiser and many others.
But, apparently, all this is a scam, various users have in fact discovered very strange things, for example the socials of this company created all very recently and with very few followers, their logo copied by the team that is working on the game of Evil Dead (Boss Team Games), even a Senior Character Artist of Dead by Daylight expressed about the NFT saying that he does not like all this and does not support it, making it clear that somehow, Behaviour Interactive has no collaboration with Boss Protocol:
All this seems simply a scam, we will surely find out more in the coming days, maybe with an official statement from Behaviour Interactive.
