The lights are on
22 Cans and Peter Molyneux's Curiosity Cube is complete, and it was all a grand experiment for the studio's next game, Godus.
Peter Molyneux famously said that the thing in the middle of Curiosity Cube would be life changing. For the person who was able to break the final brick to enter the cube, it seems like it will be – as long as the game is successful.
From Edinburgh broke the final cube and got to see this video. In the video Molyneux outlined, in somewhat vague terms, that Henderson would be in control of 22 Cans' next game, Godus. Molyneux said, speaking directly to Henderson, "The whole game is about being a god to your followers," and continued by saying, "You will decide the rules that the game is played on." Molyneux also said that Henderson will share in the game's success saying, "Every time someone spends money in Goddess, you will get a small piece of the pie."
Godus was announced late last year as a Kickstarter project.
22 Cans is apparently chatting with Henderson on the phone now about all the details. 22 Cans will undoubtedly have more to share about Godus soon, once they work out all the details with Henderson.

This seems like it was a cool experiment.
Oh Moleneux. You so crazy.
That's pretty cool. Someone finally gets something for completing a game other than "Thanks for playing" or credits.
I don't understand how the game worked because I haven't played it, but it would be pretty lame if someone had only done a few bricks and got rewarded with money while everyone else gets nothing.
This is all very dependent on what sort of person this Bryan Henderson is like surely.
That's quite cool. Good on Molyneux for taking what seems like a fairly big risk.
I wonder if he has to be committed to the game as the winner if he chooses to go through with it, or if he can hand his power to another individual if he chooses no to or wants to stop. This is a very intriguing concept and I'm excited to see how this might turn out...
Haha... i knew it'll suck, just a tactic to get people interested in his *** game.
You had my *ahem* curiosity Mr. Molyneux, but now you have my attention.
