Peter Molyneux's latest venture, Curiosity, certainly garnered the attention of the mobile gaming community when it launched last week, but the game has been suffering server problems ever since. Molyneux promises in a YouTube video that the team has a solution, but implementing it will require additional servers not to mention more money. Rather than enable in-app purchases to gather funds for the much-needed bandwidth, 22Cans has instead begun taking donations via PayPal on its website. All of this is either a brilliant ploy to drum up further interest in the experiment, or a lesson for other developers to always be prepared.
