Remember Bryan Henderson? He’s the man who won the Curiosity prize, a prize that the game’s creator, Peter Molyneux, promised would be ‘life-changing’. Part of that prize involved becoming a ‘digital god’. It also included a cut of the profits from Molyneux’s next game Godus. To date Henderson hasn’t received a cent. He is yet to become a digital god.
Eurogamer has just published a top notch feature article on the situation and it’s an absolute must read. It tells the story of how Henderson came to win the prize and how he has been treated since winning the prize. It really is a phenomenal read. Henderson has been treated pretty shoddily since winning the prize.
