First 22 Cans experiment features GBP 50,000 DLC
One diamond chisel available in Curiosity.
Feeling flush? According to an interview with Peter Molyneux over at New Scientist, the Curiosity experiment announced at this week's E3 conference will feature one very interesting piece of DLC: a GBP 50,000 ($77,500) diamond chisel.
As reported earlier this week, players will collectively chip away at the mysterious black cube that lies at the heart of 22 Cans' first experiment. This will ultimately reveal something "truly amazing, absolutely unique", says Molyneux.
The catch is, only the person who makes the final tap will see what lies beneath, and the development team intends to closely monitor how this news spreads as part of their investigation into social media.
While players will start off by chipping away at the cube with a free tool, they'll be able to upgrade their chisel to increase their tapping strength. At one end of the spectrum, there'll be the GBP 0.59 ($0.91) iron chisel which is ten times as powerful. At the extreme end, the GBP 50,000 diamond chisel will be 100,000 times as powerful, and available to just one player.
Will anyone purchase such an extraordinarily high-priced item? It wouldn't surprise us, and we'll be keeping a very close eye on this intriguing title.
