Inside is a acorn growing simulation

I can't WAIT for the DLC for this! I hope there is an alternate cube's story! Like what another cube was doing while this was going on.

I hope this "game" falls on it's arse. Stupid. You spend 50,000 pounds to not crack a cube then someone who spent nothing comes along and cracks it one after you sunk a whole lot of money into it. What could be worth 50,000 pounds?

Inside the box - All the money that other players have spent in-game minus 15-20% which the dev keeps. would make em a lot of money..

You´ll find  a video of Molyneux new fable, now you can play with your dog companion who happens to be the avatar of a god in a microverse on an island ruled by the character of other player that you can only interact if you are touching hands via kinnect, of course always beautyfull and beyond any game made until that day.

There will be a message saying "Sorry Mario, but your princess is in another cube! Buy Curiosity 2!"

 

In all seriousness though, the problem I see with this "game" (if you can call it a game) is that no matter what he chooses place inside the cube, it will end up being a disappointment because games aren't always about the final product. They are mostly about the experience. And there's no fun in tapping the screen of your cellphone.

 

Unless of course whatever's inside is some kind of material prize. It won't give you a sense of discovery or enjoyment, but you can then say: "Yeah, that's worth the money I poured into that thing" (Which I doubt it will happen.)

 

Just my two cents.

Does this new idea for a game count as thinking outside the box?

Just look at his smile plus confident gestures towards the things he is saying about his incredible stupid game!!!!

I'm just pissed off i didn't come with this idea!!!

But in other hand I would have to be peter molyneux to have the nerve to talk about this sh$Ty idea like it was something beautiful! He reminds me of steve jobs in this one!

Inside the box is a small video of an hour long talk about nothing from Molyneux, telling you that is what he has planned all along, and that it is what you actually wanted, to develop a relationship with the box and its Dog. Make the story your own. Wait.. no dog. Scratch that. Then you wake up and realize, hey! No it wasn't. Just like Fable. He left them because, if he left the games short comings couldn't be blamed on his empty 'promises'.

More boring crap by Peter Molyneux is inside the cube. There. Now that i have ended the "Curiosity", lets focus on more worthy games.

in the box there's a message..

 

"In the time you and others have spend playing this game, 18.361 children died of hunger and disease. With the amount of money everyone has spend, you could have saved them all. I bet you feel like a real winner now, right? Go outside and make a change... for a change."

Lame sounds like a shite scratchcard effort

I can't lie I am curious to see what the hell this is about. But seeing how I am skeptical about everything, I also think it's kind of a ploy to see how many suckers there are.

And someone will probably buy the 50k item... How's that for pay to win?! This game sounds terrible.... I'm guessing the inside will just be a banner telling you that you threw your time away taping on a digital box BUT that you were the best at wasting your time!

Maybe we will find Jimmy hoffa.  Molyneux Knew this whole time!!!

It will be filled with all of our crushed dreams from the many broken promises Molyneux has made in the past.

Inside will be a portrait of B. F. Skinner and a piece of cheese.

William Somerset: Put the gun down. [throws down his own gun; to Somerset

David Mills: I saw you with a box. What was in the box?

John Doe: Because I envy your normal life. It seems that envy is my sin.

William Somerset: Put the gun down David.

David Mills: No! What's in the box?

It's a Molyneux game so it'll be totally disappointing.  xD  At least this time it's something no one really cares about.

I'll just wait for it to go up on youtube, because it will.

Would be funny if the player cracks the box open and is greeted with a Rick Roll. You can't say they won't be surprised.

If I had to guess, I expect the development bill will be inside that box. Automatically charged to the phone it's being played on.

I would give a kidney if it meant that nobody anywhere in the world downloads this sad excuse for a project, with the non-existent reception forcing Molyneux to go away permanently.

Money. Like 10 000 dollars. So he can release the box again next month and sell more shit.

Naaa... it's probably the release date of the new fable for IOS and maybe an achievement for early access...

 @palandu I can't see anyone spending money in this game when there's no certainty they will even see any sort of return. It's like playing the lottery except the sole winner gets a bunch of flashing lights and cheesy fireworks on their phone screen instead of a million dollars

 @dronearm Oh, this is totally like Schrodinger's Cat. The box simultaneously contains nothing and everything  until it is opened.

I changed my mind, inside will be a 30 second ad you can't skip. "this waste of time was brought to you by Coka-Cola. Always Coka-Cola."

 @RPG_Fan_I_Am Are you implying that the box contains the heads of our wives? Who knows; it mights; it could have anything inside!

 @Dennarai No it's the first game. It will be amazing. Then the second one will be ok, and by the third it will just suck.

 @SolanOcard  @dronearm Thank you for taking the charm of the subtle, and making it blindingly obvious.  Maybe you'd like to reveal the double meaning behind all our favorite puns too?
