We’ve talked about this ‘game’ a few times in the past which was originally called Curiosity until NASA made Peter Molyneux change the name to Curiosity: What’s Inside The Box. For those who have missed our previous coverage of this game, basically everyone, regardless of what platform they are playing it on, are whacking away at a giant cube, trying to be the one to strike the final blow and learn what is inside the cube.
Peter Molyneux promises is will be something life changing and amazing so it could be something absurd like $10 million dollars or a gold plated happy meal from McDonalds, no one knows right now. When the final blow is taken, only that person will see what is inside the cube as well so unless they decide to announce what was in there, we may never know what we spend whacking this cube for a month for.
Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube Features:
– Join thousands of people in being part of a one-of-a-kind social experiment
– Earn coins for chipping away at the Cube and spend them on new destructive and playful tools to get to the centre of the Cube faster. The more you chip away, the more powerful you become.
– Enjoy the addictive nature of chipping away at the Cube
– Make beautiful music just by interacting with the Cube.
– Experiment with creating text and pictures just by chipping shapes into the surface of the Cube.
– Watch the cube evolve as the world’s impact on the Cube’s surface changes over time.
– Each layer of the Cube holds something unique for the world to reveal.
– How long can you chip away at the Cube for in fast succession? Earn coins the longer you can last and compare your score with your friends.
– Invite your friends to indulge their curiosity, compare your progress together, and find each other on the Cube.
– Relax to the very therapeutic activity and soundscape.
– Experiment with various techniques. Everyone interacts with the Cube in their own way!
– Keep revisiting the Cube over time to find new surprises.
– This is the first of 22Experiments from the legendary designer Peter Molyneux.
As you chip away on the cube, you earn coins which you can spend on tools to help to more damage with each swing. Of course you can get an edge up on people and use in-game purchases to get tools as well including the ridiculous $50,000 Diamond Chisel which would cost three billion coins for those of you who are thinking about saving those coins to get it.
You won’t be left out in the cold though if you don’t get that final blow as every layer of the cube as something unique to show you. Also, you can chisel out patterns and show it off to the world if you want to get a little creative. For those of you interested in undertaking this experiment, which is actually slightly addictive, you can grab Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube for free off of Google Play.
