Curiosity winner will help shape Godus, receive some profits

The world's Curiosity was sated over the weekend. The mysterious cube-tapping app from Peter Molyneux's 22cans studio concluded with, as promised, just one person entitled to the "life-changing" secret contained within the multilayered box.

That person was 18-year-old Edinburgh, Scotland resident Bryan Henderson. He'd just downloaded Curiosity an hour before winning, he told Wired.


Now he'll have some kind of significant impact on the morals and lives of players of Godus, Molyneux revealed in the video Henderson received (the benevolent teen god agreed to share it with the rest of the internet). He'll also receive a small cut of Godus' profits.

What would've been inside the cube if Godus' Kickstarter failed? Maybe a video of Molyneux crying, or asking for money? The world will never know.

    I feel bad for Peter, he is always so full of ideas but that's about it, it never makes it from his head to the game, usually because the type of stuff he wants isn't possible yet, and after he "left" Lion Head studios it's just gone downhill. Would have been a better professional writer, than a game creator.

    Can't wait to see news about the winner getting life threatening emails written by some "pro-gamers" because he decided to destroy whatever they have built.

    I predicted this on day one. I should get the prize.

    Didn't Molyneux say that the thing in the center of the cube would be mind blowing or life changing or something? Guess he was exaggerating, as usual.

    Well, the winner gets to appear as a prominent character in a game, and it will get a cut of the game's earnings. How much will he ultimately earn is unknown, but if you see it in a strict sense, it's certainly life changing, as the money he gets from that has a potential to change his life to allow him to do or buy something he otherwise wouldn't have done if he hadn't won ;) I mean, it's still a hyperbole, sure, but as far as videogame prizes go, that's actually a pretty fucking good one if you ask me.

    But it is,to the winner. They become a major part of a game, they become famous, they get money. Its actually refreshing seeing Molyneus actually keep a promise.

    Only problem I see is if the developers of Godus do not put the effort into the game due to the possibility that the "Game God" may just mess it up in one fell swoop. Then couple that with the fact that the guy may either be a terrible "god" or vise verse is a recipe for a mediocre game that the developers would never really put much stock into do to the "god's" ability to screw it up. I don't know, this doesn't seem to be spelling out a great game.

    He downloaded it an hour before winning....that's the funniest shit I've heard today.
