The lights are on
Update 2: Peter has settled on a name. He said on Twitter:
We have a new name for Curiosity. After hours of posting, collating office discussions, asking advice from the press the consensus is... Curiosity: What's in the Cube. Not what I voted for but ho hum. I wanted to call it 'Cube of Duty'.
Update: Looks like a delayed release isn't the only thing holding back Peter Molyneux's upcoming project. Turns out he's going to have to change its name, too.
Molyneux has tweeted that he can't use the name Curiosity because of NASA's Mars rover.
He says that 22 Cans is currently brainstorming a new name, but it's not known if this latest development is related to the delay itself.
Original Story: Peter Molyneux's first post-Lionhead project with his new studio 22 Cans, entitled Curiosity, has been delayed slightly.
Curiosity unveiling has been now been moved back to September.
The social experiment, where players buy chisels of varying prices (including an extremely expensive diamond chisel) to tap on the same cube with a mystery prize inside for whomever registers the final tap, will be used for feedback on the psychology of social media usage that will be applied to the developers' first game.

Par for the course.
I've always been a fan of Peter Molyneux... over exaggerated claims and everything. I honestly am looking forward to whatever this thing is.
This is both an intriguing concept and a brilliant way for Molyneux to make money.
It's hard not to like Gaming's excentric uncle, Peter Molyneux. If nothing else, he always has brilliant ideas.
I'm trying to remember where it was I had read that the goal of curiosity was not just to see how far people would go to be the one to reach the center but also how said person would spread the word and prove the legitimacy of their knowledge. THAT fascinates me far more, but that might just be those psychology classes from a few semesters ago chattering in the back of my head.
My affection for Molyneux went down the minute Lionhead closed down all support for 'The Movies Online' and instead focused soley on Fable. He can have his box, this fall is all about surviving the zombiepocolypse.
I have been a fan of Peter Molyneux in the fact that he has good game Idea's. But he is the man that has been known to lie non stop. He will claim stuff about his games the will never come true.....
This game will change the WORLD!!!
Undelivered promises and false advertising are my guesses for what shall be found within the cube.
