The Trail is a the newest game from Peter Molyneux (Populous, Fable, Godus), 22Cans and Kongregate. My first thought before playing The Trail was, “So, I just walk?” Oh, how wrong I was!
Many of you may remember 22Can’s rather interesting social gaming experiment called Curiosity which essentially had thousands and thousands of mobile gamers tapping away at a giant cube in the hopes of being the person who gets the last tap to reveal the very center of the cube. This person was promised a life changing reward for getting that last tap. 18-year-old Bryan Henderson happen to be that person and when he accessed the center of the cube, he was greeted with a video congratulating him, giving him a contact email address to use in order to claim his life changing prize.
Since the inception of Peter Molyneux and his studio 22Cans’ Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube game, everyone has been wondering what the prize is at the center of the cube. For those of you unfamiliar with this game, Curiosity was a social experiment type of game where everyone playing the game happen to be chipping away at a giant cube. The person to strike the last hit on the cube to access the center would receive a prize that, as Peter Molyneux described, would be life changing.
We reported a few times in the past that Peter Molyneux’s studios 22Cans, the folks responsibly for the Curiosity game, happen to be working on a new game called Godus. This particular game is sort of a mix between Populous and Dungeon Keeper with 3D visuals to round everything off.
22Cans’ social experiement game Curiosity has gotten updated and this update brings with it a new optional feature players can purchase which makes this game a slight bit more challenging. For those of you trying to be the lucky person to get the last hit in order to win whatever the secret life changing prize is inside the cube, if you think things are not going in your favor, you can now do an IAP that will let you add blocks back onto the Cube.
