Back in the November of 2012, renowned game developer Peter Molyneux had started an experiment. He, along with his studio 22cans, had released a mobile game dubbed Curiosity: What's Inside the Cube? The premise of the game was simple. There was a huge cube that players had to work together on getting inside by tapping on blocks. There were many layers to the cube and it took a good seven months, but finally, the experiment is over. 18-year old Scotland resident Bryan Henderson was the player who removed the final block of the cube.
Back when Curiosity was launched, Molyneux had announced that whoever wins the game will reveal a “life-changing secret”. Of course the secret revealed hasn't been very life-changing for Henderson, but it is still impressive that a record number of players joined in on the experiment just to take a look at what the secret was.
According to 22cans, because Henderson won Curiosity, he will be getting the pivotal role of God in the studio's upcoming godgame Godus. The company has also announced that he will share the success of the game, which basically means that Henderson will get a portion of any profit the game manages to make.
Curiosity is now over
“I said — and I'm known for these things — I said there's something amazing inside. Something life changing,” Molyneux said. “… We could give you a piece of advice … we could say, here's a wad of cash. But it needs to be more meaningful. It needs to say more about the effort.”
“It is the ability to be a digital god,” Molyneux continued.
“You will have fame,” Molyneux said. “You will have fortune. And you will have the power to introduce morals into a game.”
