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.
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.
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.
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.
We have talked about Peter Molyneux’s upcoming virtual piñata game coming in September a few times already, mostly because of the humor we find behind the entire thing. As we reported last week, the game was delayed from its August 22nd release date to sometime in September due to NASA having an issue with the game’s name being Curiosity. Well Mr. Molyneux has come up with a new name, not very original, but still somewhat new.
Arriving just after the Angry Birds Seasons Back to School update, Angry Birds Space has just received its newest update as well today called the Red Planet expansion. As you may be guessing, this is a Mars themed update featuring 20 new fiery levels that Rovio has teamed up with NASA for.
By now you should be relatively familiar with Peter Molyneux’s upcoming experimental social game that was delayed till September for release instead of being launched yesterday. Dubbed ‘Curiosity’, essentially you tap on the block, along with every other player, in order to chip away at it. The person who lands the final tap will be the only person to see what is actually inside the cube.
We talked about this… game… before when it was first announced but unfortunately Peter Molyneux’s experimental game called Curiosity has been delayed till September. It was actually slated for release today which, if that had happened, we would be finding out the meaning of life, or something similar, fairly soon.
Molyneux’s upcoming experimental game, called Curiosity, being developed in conjunction with 22 Cans is slated for release on August 22nd, 2012 on Android, iOS and PC. Right now we know that the game revolves around millions of players chipping away at a revolving block that, as it is chipped away, breaks off into smaller and smaller pieces.
