With all the hype surrounding Peter Molyneux’s Curiosity, it was easy to forget that it hadn’t even been released yet. Now, the experimental game has finally been made available via the Google Play Store.
In case you haven’t heard of Curiosity already, its main premise is to allow players to “Join thousands of people worldwide to simultaneously chip away at a giant Cube to discover the life-changing secret buried inside.” Officially, the game has undergone a name change to Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube, to avoid any possible confusion with NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover, although how one would confuse one with the other isn’t very clear.
The central theme of the mystery is–surprise, surprise–that nobody knows what’s inside the cube. It could be anything from money to a puppy to a rusty old can. The only way to find out is to figure out how to open the cube.
If you’re interested, Curiosity is a free download in the Google Play Store. Be warned, with so many people logging on to play, a lot of players are having trouble connecting. The game is seeing a whole slew of one star reviews as a result. Whether or not it actually deserves them remains to be seen.
Are you interested in finding out what’s inside the cube? Are you going to try to be the one who finds out, or are just going to wait for somebody else to figure it out?
