Harms Way is the third free XBLA game sponsored by Doritos, a brand of flavoured tortilla chips owned by the company Frito-Lay. It was released alongside Doritos Crash Course. It was the second time the company organized an Unlock Xbox competition where people where invited to think up a game concept. Justin Carpenter came up with the idea and fans got to vote for the best game between 8th December 2010 and 26th December 2010. On 30th December 2010 Doritos Crash Course was announced the winner of the competition, but in the end Harms Way was released as well. Although there was originally no prize for second place, Carpenter received $50,000, the same amount as the winner.
