22Cans is the studio gaming legend Peter Molyneux created and Curiosity follows on from such hits as Populous, Black and White, Fable and Dungeon Keeper. The game is available for iOS and at Google Play and is free.
Except; game is the wrong word. Curiosity is an experiment. It’s an experiment to see whether people will tap away billions of little cublets in order to see what’s in the cube – even if they know only one person, in this multi-player experiment, will find out.
So far so many people are lining up to have a go at bashing into the cube that 22Cans have been hit by serious server errors. The small studio has been working the weekend to try an fix the problems.
If you’d like to donate to the project there’s a Paypal button on their blog now. Buying more oomph might be the only solution.
Although many people struggle to access the server and the (optional) Facebook connect button is likely to bring doom – people are “playing”. People have also been carving geeky patterns into the cube. This takes skill because other people are chipping away at the same time as you. You need to find a good patch of cublets, chip quickly and take a screen shot.
