Former LionHead Chief Promoting New Company's Venture, Which Will Feature 1 Piece of DLC Costing 50,000 GBP ($77,500 USD).
In what can only be called another "Molyneux Moment," the former head of Microsoft development house LionHead today unveiled some of the basic plans for the first game from the new independent company, 22 Cans, which has been entitled Curiosity.
According to Molyneux, the game will feature a single virtual room, with a black cube that all users will chip away at. Eventually, the black cube will break, revealing something "truly amazing, absolutely unique" and only the person responsible for breaking the cube will get to see this wondrous thing.
The catch? During the course of the chiseling, players will be able to purchase a limited number of chisels, which will increase the player's tapping strength. As you might have guessed, one of these chisels, which only one player will be able to buy, will sell for an estimated $77,500 USD. This will give the user 100,000 times the tapping strength of a standard chisel, but of course, there's no guarantee that this chisel will break through the cube, nor that anyone will actually purchase it.
Molyneux is expecting this portion of the game to be unveiled within the next six weeks, leading to the full and final game which is set to be released within the next two years.
