Curiosity besieged by hackers, but the secret remains safe

Polygon writes:

"The secret at the center of Peter Molyneux's experimental tapping game Curiosity isn't really the secret. It's the secret to the secret.

In November, Molyneux's newly-minted development studio 22Cans launched their first Android and iOS game, a sort of interactive thought experiment that asked the world's gamers to work together to peck away at the layers of a giant virtual cube floating in a white room online." (Android, Curiosity, iPad, iPhone)

I'm sure it is all designed to be unlocked at a certain date/time. It's pretty sad that they have to put in safety nets to make sure hackers don't ruin the surprise.

eh sad? I think it's pretty smart. Isn't the purpose of playing a game to play it right and fair? I mean it would be unfair if they decided to store the prize on the server just to have a hacker get it.

I know people play differently, I just don't see why people get off with cheating. For me that defeats the whole purpose of the game and makes it completely boring.

EDIT: ahh I see, then yea

I agree. What I meant was sad because of the hackers. I mean it's pretty bad that you have to think about those that want to cheat beforehand.
