22 Cans first experiment ready to go after slipping from August

Curiosity, the first experiment from Peter Molyneux's start-up developer 22 Cans, has been given an official release date.

According to VG247, Curiosity will launch on November 7, marking the start of what, in Molyneux's estimation, will be, "the greatest experiment the world has ever known."

"It was a real struggle getting it though Apple, mainly due to its uniqueness, but we are there," Molyneux said in a statement issued to VG247. "Thanks for remaining curious."

Curiosity was initially scheduled to go live in August, but the launch slipped as 22 Cans refined the experience. This will be the first in a series of releases from the studio, the results of which will contribute towards a full game.

So, one of two things can happen.

Either no one cares and this title will be a total flop. Or...

They manage to get tons of people hooked and chipping away but no one will then ever know what's really inside that cube. Only one person will presumably know the real truth, yet anyone could potentially falsely claim they've seen what's inside and consequently post fake information on the web. I suspect we'll be seeing entire memes devoted to what's (not really) inside the cube, and the real experiment will actually be taken outside of the app itself and propagated on the social networks. But even that would only last for a short while, wouldn't it?
"the greatest experiment the world has ever known."
I mean, really? No, really? Unless he managed to put God inside the cube or something along those lines... maybe the real answer to life, the universe and everything. With a line like that we can be nothing but disappointed when we find out, if we put any faith to it.

Hyperbole: "the greatest experiment the world has ever known." Do CERN know about this? Maybe Curiosity has a Higgs Boson in it.

There is no way that this can be anything other than an anticlimax.

Only Peter could throw out a line of hyperbole so inane that it makes Bruce and I agree on something.

Peter, I love your passions. It's almost infectious. But at the same time it's also what puts off a lot of people. You hype your products with greater intensity than a Fox newscaster talking about the impending doom of America if Obama gets re-elected.

You need help, Peter. Maybe there is a hype clinic where you live. Some kind of 12 step program. Maybe you need some methe-calm. Have you tried lithium?

Here's another big industry ego awaiting a reality check on mobile. I can't wait.
