Der Guardian über den gameifizierten Überwachungsprotest CAMOVER:

The game is real-life Grand Theft Auto for those tired of being watched by the authorities in Berlin; points are awarded for the number of cameras destroyed and bonus scores are given for particularly imaginative modes of destruction. Axes, ropes and pitchforks are all encouraged.

"We thought it would motivate inactive people out there if we made a video-invitation to this reality-game," the creator of Camover (who wanted to remain anonymous) told me. "Although we call it a game, we are quite serious about it: our aim is to destroy as many cameras as possible and to have an influence on video surveillance in our cities."

The winner of the game does not get a trophy or a year's supply of spray paint. The competition ends on 19 February, to coincide with the start of the European Police Congress.
