Curiosity's may end with new Xbox reveal

A coincidence?

By Grayshadow, Posted 02 May 2013

Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube, the endless clicking game, has now been officially confirmed to be down to the last 50 layers. Launched in November 2012 on iOS and shortly on Android it seems that the head of 22Cans Studio, Peter Molyneux, is also vexed about waiting for the mystery to come into the light after telling Polygon that “Enough’s enough, for crying out loud…it’s been six months, and some people’s fingers are probably bleeding from tapping so much”.

If you don’t know Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube is a game where the player removes dots from a cube to reveal a secret within with is apparently “life changing”. A timer is running towards the projected end of the experiment when one person will clear the final layer before anyone else. In a recent interview with Gamespot Molyneux said that “I thought six months was about the length of time that Curiosity should go on before it closed, and this is almost exactly the six month anniversary of the end of Curiosity” and that “Bizarrley, as part of that controversy, is that the end of the cube--the last layer of the cube--might well be, I mean probably if you look at our analysis of probability, the same day that the next Xbox is announced. Which would be a bizarre twist of fate”. Maybe it’s a coincidence or not, but Molyneux didn’t comment. 

It’s been six months since Curiosity launched and it has been downloaded over 5 million times, which was unexpected by Molyneux. But at it’s core the download is an experiment that Molyneux deemed successful. Well when you hide a life-changing secret at the center of a cube and tell people that they have to click through billions of little squares is the only way to find out what it is you can now be sure people are going to do it.
