Molyneux asks for donations to battle Curiosity server issues

Peter Molyneux’s latest idea, Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube?, has been facing server issues since its launch last week.

The problems have included fatal crashes, lag, images beneath layers disappearing, and players losing coins. As a result, Molyneux, as head of developer 22 Cans, has asked for donations to aid the team in the battle against these setbacks. Its website now features a PayPal button, in which supporters may offer their contributions, as well as this statement by Molyneux:

“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.”

Curiosity: Whats Inside the Cube? has caused quite a stir over the past week with its interesting premise. As a kind of MMO experience, players around the world work together to chip away at a giant cube in order to reveal something “life-changingly amazing by any definition.”

But what do you readers think? Is it an impressive social experiment? A compelling community experience? Or just mindless tapping? Let GamerNode know in the comments section below.
