22Cans are seeking help from fans of Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube to cover rising server costs following the game’s recent issues, are you willing to help?
Around one million people have downloaded the social experiment which sees players chipping away at a cube to reveal its contents, however due to server issues and bugs it hasn’t quite worked out this way. Thousands of players are reporting several major issues with the game including server errors, cubes not updating in real time, and coins disappearing. Having tried the game I can safely say that all these errors are real as I’ve encountered all three, I’ve only been able to get past the server error screen twice in the last few days.
The developer has been working night and day in an attempt to rectify the issues and is now asking for help to cover rising costs. “We may need help to make the experience truly wonderful, our server costs are going to ramp up with our new fix,” studio head Peter Molyneux explained.
A statement on the developer’s website reads: “We are a small independent developer and due to popular demand we now offer the option for kind people to donate, so that we can make Curiosity the best possible experience it can be. However big or small the donation; it will really help us make Curiosity better.”
Are you willing to help out? What do you think of the game so far? Let us know in the comments below.
