When Peter Molyneux and his new studio, 22 Cans, released their social game experiment Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube? the other day, they didn’t expect the response to be as overwhelming as it has been, having seen a much larger install and player base than originally expected. A lot of people want to know what is inside a cube and with Peter Molyneux promising it’ll blow your mind, I think everyone is a little bit curiosity as to what is in there.
However, with great popularity comes great responsibility, and 22 Cans wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of people who want to whack away at a massive cube for god knows how long until someone manages to get the final blow and gets the secret revealed to them, and only them. The game has been plague with connectivity issues where players are not even able to log in for the first time to even try it out, while other players who have gotten logged in can play but then have to fight to get back in once they finish.
While the connectivity issue can be annoying, what is even a bigger pain in the ass is the bug that seems o be accidentally erasing players coins that they have earned. The video was created by 22 Cans designer Jack Attridge where they show everyone working hard to fix all the issues. Also, we can certainly rule out that there will be some sort of massive cash prize in the center of the cube as 22 Cans have opened up a PayPal account to accept donations in order to faster cure the server connectivity issues, most likely by getting more servers we are guessing.
