"Curiosity – what’s inside the cube" is the first experiment out of Peter Molyneux-headed game studio 22cans. "Something amazing is hidden in the cube but only one player will be fortunate to discover what it is." You can get crackin' at the cube for free from the iTunes App store
or Google Play
The virtual cube is constructed of hundreds of millions of "cubelets". Everyone is working off of the same cube and the initial black outer face has been nearly completely chipped away in just the first day revealing the next face: green. (Chipping on which cannot begin until all black cubelets are cleared.) The game is soothing, in a way. Strike the cubes in a consistent, but quick way, without misses, and watch as you build a multiplier. Accrue coins so that you can "rent" larger pick axes to clear more cubelets.
It looks like we're a long way from the center, though presumably it will accelerate as the cube gets smaller and more people attain larger pick-axes. Their servers are getting crushed right now, though, so it may take even longer.
