Curiosity – What's Inside the Cube now on Android

There’s been an awfully large amount of fuss surrounding the development of indie title Curiosity – What’s Inside the Cube, thanks to it being the latest production from famed UK developer Peter Molyneux.

People also love the concept, which is that it’s a sort of MMORPG social game, in which players join together to chip away at an absolutely enormous cube, stripping it down layer by layer to work out what, if anything, lies at its core – and only the person who chips away the final chunk will get to see it.

Curiosity was supposed to launch tomorrow, but the iOS version arrived this morning. The Android code has now hit the Play Store and can be downloaded here. It’s free. Everyone’s going to be talking about it so you probably should get on with it and do your bit.

      I like it. It’s nice to play a game that feels like you’re doing something constructive and pushing toward some sort of communal goal. Even if playing it is probably more monotonous than most factory tasks.

          I’ve been hammering it too. Really like the wide range of scoring strategies and just watching it change. Shame the menus are a bit slow and rubbish, though.

            Yes, and now the developers are asking for donations to help pay for data costs. I wonder if “Will people pay to keep the cube online?” is part of the experiment?
