THE CUBE HAS ENDED
« on: May 26, 2013, 11:24:21 am »

I watched the last few cubelets on the cube of Curiosity (iPad and iPhone app) get tapped. Someone tapped the last cube RIGHT BEFORE I tapped it. I could have gotten it if I were faster.

But, knowing Peter molyneux, guy who made Fable, it was probably a fucking chicken

Hehe, well my guess is that it's more or less random for people.
The servers have been very laggy in the past and so I would guess that due to this half the world probably saw the last few cubes as there clicks failed to process.
However I wasn't there. Was it very laggy with sudden updates or did they hire more servers to try to reduce this?
I considered trying to run an auto-tapper program (some have already been made for the game) and with it I could try to get the last cube. However I fingered that not only would that be lame but I'd still be very unlikely to actually win it.

So, let me get this straight. I've never heard of Curiousity, but after watching that video....


The guy who beats the game (presumably by clicking cubes), gets to be the GM of the next game?

That's pretty cool, so basically this was a golden ticket.

Terrific.


But seriously, the winner could've cheated, and now he's in charge/profitting off of a massive iPhone game I assume.

Haha, oh. That's kind of lame.
I was hoping it would be a layer at a time or something.

So I guess this whole thing was just an advertising ploy for his new game.
I'm not sure I would really consider the inside the be life changing. But it could have been worse I guess.
Who paid 50,000?

I would think being the GM/a collector of profits on a game that was born of a game big enough to get an audience of over a million, and more than $50,000, would be pretty life changing to me. But I don't know the whole story.

Well I guess we'll see.
I would doubt I'll hear much about his new game though. This is the squeal to one that didn't do that well and in general I never felt that he had curiosity really under control. (All the lag, hacking and worse of all his lack of planning. I highly doubt that the cube actually had a fixed number of layers from the beginning, it was just "let them mine away until I make an ending so I can call the last layers").
Who knows though. If everyone else is playing it I might take a look.
Overall it was likely a very successful advertising campaign.
