Some people got extremely excited about Curiousity, about what was inside the cube. I fully expected it to be a GIF of Peter Molyneux eating popcorn, or something equally insignificant, but the above video reveals precisely what the actual prize was and I'm sort of disappointed. I expected the winner to be raised inexplicably into the air and surrounded by lightning. Basically I wanted it to be the end of Highlander.
But the winner, Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland, was presented with the above video and told that his prize was a place in Molyneux's upcoming game Godus. Essentially Bryan will become a "digital god".
What does that mean? Well it appears as though Bryan will actually be placed in the game, but Molyneux also referred to the ability to "intrinsically decide on the rule Godus is played on". We're not entirely sure what that means at this point, but I'm sure it'll all be revealed in due time.
Interesting, Bryan Henderson also gets to share in the profits of the game itself, which is actually a very substantial prize depending on the success of the game.
I find the above video itself hilarious. Molyneux appearing all echoey like some digital being, like a balding, mediocre Willy Wonka. It's just amazing. So pretentious. So amazing.
