22 Cans’ Curiosity – What’s Inside the Cube? out now

Molyneux brings us MS Paint 2: The Dickening

Peter Molyneux’s latest flight of fancy — Curiosity – What’s Inside the Cube? — is now available to download for free on iOS, with an Android version promised soon. 

In case you’re not caught up with the mad idea, it’s a “game” in which you’re expected to obsessively tap on a cube to remove bits of it. Potentially thousands of other “players” are tapping the cube, but only one person in the world can hit the very last piece and find out what’s inside the box. 

A “life-changing” prize is promised to whoever finds it. This is where I had originally planned a Se7en reference, but everybody’s already beaten me to it.

First impressions? It’s exactly what it sounds like. Incessant tapping. Pretty dull in practice, despite the interesting premise, and I wonder whether people will keep “playing” once the fun of tapping out penis shapes dries up. But hey, at least it’s not on rails!
