News: Peter Molyneux’s follow-up to Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube will be a game called Cooperation, which will be competitive. Confused? So am I.
Peter Molyneux’s upcoming Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube is a game/social experiment where players have to break open a cube to reveal what it’s inside. More than one person can help chip away at the block, so there’s a bit of a cooperative element, and cooperation will be the main focus of Molyneux’s next game titled, wait for it, Cooperation.
Speaking to Polygon, Molyneux said that “Cooperation is very, very different, maybe it’s not a game, or maybe you’d call it a social game. If you think of [Curiosity] being the biggest mystery posted to the digital world, Cooperation is the biggest cooperative effort the world has ever known.”
Despite the whole “cooperative effort” — as well as Molyneux’s penchant for
being pretentious and lying hyping things up, Molyneux went on to say that Cooperation was competitive and mentioned how he thought Tug of War was an interesting social experiment.
So Cooperation will be competitive and will not be entirely be cooperative even though the game is called Coopertation, which would logically suggest that the game is cooperative. Hmm. Perhaps the game should be called Cooperation and Competition?
