As has been extensively reported previously, Bryan Henderson, the 'winner' of Peter Molyneux's Curiosity – What's Inside the Cube has not received the riches or the recognition he was promised by 22Cans.
Skip forward to today and GameBundle.com has announced it will be launching The Forgotten God bundle, which offers eight games including one game of the year winning title, on February 27th. 10 per cent of net revenue generated by sales of the bundle will be given to Henderson, who was due to become the "god" of 22Can's Curiosity follow-up Godus, with the power to determine the game's rules and earn money from the title. Despite that, Henderson hasn't received much of anything from 22Cans to date.
“When we first started work on GameBundle.com, we discussed which charities we wanted to support. This was right around the time that Bryan’s story came out in the media. Like many of those who had read the story, we empathized with Bryan and how he must have felt after coming to the realization that the amazing prize he had won would never be delivered,” Patrick Archer, CEO, Bulletproof Bit Inc., commented in a press release.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Archer said he hopes to raise $10,000 for Henderon. The Scotish university student added that he'd like to use the money to buy music gear and travel to Canada after graduating.
In the run up to the bundle's release, a Countdown to Launch promotion is taking place on GameBundle with 100 PC games being given away from today throught February 25th.
