Curiosity goes a bit mad with new in-app purchases

A 'war of attrition' will ensue, hopes Molyneux

I had long since deleted Curiosity from my iPhone after spending admittedly far too much time (see: more than five minutes) tinkering with the cooperative game about chipping away layers of a massive cube. But now, here I am, redownloading the thing after seeing on Eurogamer that some absurd new microtransactions have been added.

What's in the cube, Peter Molyneux? We may know soon, or we may never know -- that's the "joy" of these in-app purchases. For $0.99, users can remove 10,000 cubelets; $6.99 for 100,000; and $10.99 for 500,000. On the flip side, users with cash to burn can add that many cubelets for the same prices. "We don't know quite what will happen," said developer 22Cans.

Chaos? That's my guess. It's worth pointing out that, two layers prior to the big unveil of what's inside the cube, these pay-to-add-or-destroy options will be turned off. I suppose I shouldn't be at all surprised by this.
