Peter Molyneux reveals what was inside the cube – a digital god(us)
After 5 months and 25 billion of destroyed cubelets, 22cans’ mobile game experiment Curiosity – what’s inside the cube? reached its end this Sunday morning. Last November, Peter Molyneux promised “something life-changing” inside the center of the cube. Well, was he lying? No, though we still admit he got us good.
The final cubelets of Curiosity – what’s inside the cube? were destroyed by a player Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland. His reward? Here it is: he’s going to be a digital god. Yes, Henderson is to star in the 22cans’ upcoming god game Godus; he’ll get to decide on the rules people will play the game by, and he’s also in for a percentage of Godus’ sales. Molyneux didn’t go into further details, though we’ll undoubtedly be hearing about them soon enough. You can watch the full reveal here:
Godus is slated for release during late Q3/early Q4 of this year. We already heard some whispers about a September release, though no official confirmation has been given yet. As always, we’ll keep you posted about future developments, so stay tuned.

Oh, and you can congratulate the winner on Twitter. Ironically, the new “god” is an atheist.
