Evident from a post over on Reddit, user 'Khemish49' recently came across the source code for Blizzard's 1998 strategy space-opera classic StarCraft on a gold CD-R in a "box of Blizzard stuff".
Titled 'STARCRAFT - Gold Master Source Code', it was essentially the completed game. Like when you hear a soon-to-be released game 'going gold' - this is it. But when you come across such a rare artifact of the gaming world, what do you do? Khemist49 couldn't make the decision alone and even went so far as to get legal advice before. Some commenters would call him 'scummy' for keeping hold of it, whereas other, more devious, people would rather him rip the contents and have the valuable material be made freely available on the public domain.

With the various options driving him "crazy" he settled upon the wisest, more noble decision - returning it to Blizzard. After complying with Blizzard's all-powerful legal team, he recieved a bunch of goodies for his troubles - including the full Overwatch PC-branded hardware bundle (keyboard, mouse, headphones and mousemat), character plush toys, Diablo merch and $250 of Blizzard Store credit to go along with a free copy of their hit shooter. But that wasn't all - a phone call arrived shortly after with a Blizzard employee inviting Khemish49 on an all-expenses paid trip to Blizzcon with the team wanting to take him out for drinks.
Kotaku quickly rallied up their email client of choice to chase up the heart-warming story before confirming the situation themselves. It's true. All of it.
