‘Curiosity – What's Inside the Cube?’ Game Finally Decoded – Videogame God Inside

After six months, the question has been answered by an 18-year old kid who will soon be a videogame god.
'Curiosity - What's Inside the Cube?' a multiplayer social media game, was initially released by Apple in November 2011 followed by Android. It is a white room with 25 billion cubelets and white text with different topics on it. The player will need to observe the cubelets and use the displays to figure out what is in the center of the cube.
British game developer Peter Molyneux announced last year that whoever decodes the center of the cube will also unlock a "life changing" secret. Since then, the app reached over 3 million users and for months, no one is able to decode it until May 26, 2013- Bryan Henderson of Edinburgh, Scotland destroyed the final cube to reveal the secret.
Bryan Henderson is an 18-year old who downloaded the game and won it an hour later.
So what is the "life-changing" secret? Henderson will be working with 22 Cans, the developer name of Curiosity, to create his own rules for the upcoming game 'Godus'. It is a game of gods quite similar to the Populous, the first game of gods in the market, but 22 Cans call it "half a living sandbox world, and half a strategy game".
Once the game is released, Henderson will also earn money from it. Each time a player shells out money for the game, he will be receiving a portion of it.
Meanwhile, Henderson still cannot believe how he was able to finish the game in an hour while most players had been working on it since last year. Molyneux also confirmed that during the time he was playing the game, there were other players as well equivalent to 30,000.
Bryan Henderson is another kid who may soon be another gaming tycoon once the Godus project becomes a hit.
