One of the true auteurs of the videogames world has released his first ever mobile title – but it’s less of a game and more on an ‘experiment’. We caught up with him to find out more. Peter Molyneux has a long history of creating deep, enjoyable game experiences for computers and consoles. Titles like Populous, Theme Park, Black & White and Fable have given the man a cult following that has raced to download his mobile debut, Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube. Molyneux is keen to point out that this is an experiment in humankind’s curiosity, rather than traditional game. The game had been scheduled to go live in the App Store at 8.22am UK time today (a precise time chosen to match the name of his latest company, 22Cans), however it went live a day early. Opening the app up, you’ll discover a large, black cube displayed on screen. All players see exactly the same cube, and the idea is that everyone taps away at it, slowly destroying it, piece-by-piece, layer-by-layer.
