Oh, wait. Despite Molyneux's uncanny resemblance to Spacey's serial killer, I may have posted the wrong video. Ah yes, here it is. I'm sure the box contained, in what his mind, is the greatest prize of all, himself:
In what was obviously a planned advertisement for a new project, as just a couple of weeks ago they updated the game to eliminate several thousand layers of the cube to assure it's completion soon, the final layer of the cube was opened. Which just happened to get completed a few weeks before E3.
After 25 billion cubelets have been destroyed, over 150 days... we have reached the end.
So the big secret is how the next game from Molyneux will operate: GODUS. The winner, Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland, who has "never spent money on the game and only started playing it an hour before he won," will be the ruler of GODUS. He will help determine the rules, sharing in its success, and yes, profits.
You will decide on how many people play a game. You will accrue riches from that game, from the start to finish of your reign. That, by any definition of the word, is life changing.
Well, less life-changing really, more like year changing. Perhaps even less. Molyneux later revealing that the reward will be temporary.
The interesting thing is that what Bryan has won is a grace period where he can be god of gods for a certain amount of time.
Interesting? That's a heck of a way to spin telling someone they are getting less than they were a day ago. The amount of time, Molyneux reveals, could vary greatly depending on what Kickstarter backers have to say about GODUS' impressions through alpha and beta testing. The GODUS Kickstarter is fully funded, did you contribute and make the decision many gamers have made on Molyneux in the past: whether or not to buy into the hype, because there's a good chance that may be all you bought. Here's hoping the man delivers this time, if not, at least it will be "interesting."
