[Updated] Peter Molyneux’s Curiosity cube center revealed, so what was inside?

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.

However details about what that prize is has been kept under wraps since the game’s release. Everyone has taken a stab at guessing what this life changing prize would be, suggesting everything from a whole lot of cash to finally figuring out the meaning of life. Well the final blow has been struck and we now know what the mysterious prize is and it is definitely not what we thought it would be.

While the prize is actually a pretty cool prize, I don’t think we could classify it as life changing at all. The winner will be designing aspects of 22Cans’ upcoming game Godus which we’ve talked about already a few times in the past. The winner will decide on the rules that the game is played by. It took a whole lot of players chipping away at the cube which was made up of 69 billion tiny cublets which are the pieces of the cubes being chipped away.

So who won this prize? The final blow was struck by Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh who now gets to help create the rules everyone will have to follow in Godus. Will he get paid for his work on Godus? We don’t know but with Curiosity’s IAPs everyone purchased, including the $50,000 pickaxe, let’s hope that Bryan actually gets some sort of monetary prize as well.

Either way, congratulations to Bryan for having the patience to actually get the final hit on the cube. So what happens now with the game? Apparently it’s over.

Update March 27th, 2013 8:13am PST: Quick update, apparently Bryan will also receive a part of the profits that Godus will make from game sales. Hopefully the game sells well then. Thanks to Zzinged in the comments for the heads up!
