Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube is, according to developer 22 Cans, READY. The game’s been approved by Apple, and has been finished and thoroughly tested on Android platforms. Peter Molyneux’s team has finally been able to set a date, and you’ll be able to start tapping your way to the centre early next week.
You are invited to take part in a “unique global experiment”.
Joining hopefully thousands of people on the journey to the centre of the cube is going to be a fascinating experiment that we will share with the world. Remember you could be the single person to find out what TRULY amazing thing lies in the centre. Thank you for sticking with us, it’s been a couple of very stressful and fascinating weeks but the moment is finally upon us.
After initial plans for an August release fell through, Curiosity was submitted to Apple for certification back on October 1st. Apparently, the game’s unique features made things difficult. The set up is simple: Gamers tap away at a mammoth cube, each one hoping to be the single person who gets to the centre and discovers the secret hiding within.
The game itself is free, but if you want to purchase tools that will help you tap your way quicker, you can fork over real-world cash. Apparently this concept also threw up a stumbling block for Apple.
As for what is inside the cube? Nobody really knows, outside a tiny clique at 22 Cans, but hopefully the one person to unlock the box will share it with the rest of the world.
