Molyneux's new game now called 'Curiosity: What's Inside the Cube'

"I wanted to call it 'Cube of Duty', jokes Molyneux

Peter Molyneux and his team at 22 Cans have settled on a new name for its delayed debut game - Curiosity: What's in the Cube.

Molyneux revealed this week that the original title, 'Curiosity', could not be used "because of NASA," who successfully landed Curiosity, a Mars rover, on the Red Planet earlier this month.

22 Cans' project was initially expected to launch this week, but yesterday the studio confirmed a Curiosity delay to September. Whether this has anything to do with the naming issue isn't clear.

"We have a new name for curiosity," declared Molyneux via Twitter today. "After hours of posting, collating office discussions, asking advice from the press the consensus is... Curiosity: What's in the Cube."

He went on to joke, "Not what I voted for but ho hum. I wanted to call it 'Cube of Duty'.

"Logic and common sense has won out. Thank you all so much for your suggestions. Some truly inspired posts," he added.

Curiosity will place all players in the same virtual room containing a single cube that users tap away at, causing fractures. Eventually the cube will break open, revealing something "truly amazing" and "absolutely unique", according to Molyneux, but only the player who delivers the decisive final tap will get to see what.
