Curiosity: What’s Inside the Cube? has been battered by ongoing server issues since it launched last week. Peter Molyneux cube-tapping bonanza has been lagging, crashing out and has been wiping player’s hard-earned coins without reason. The developer has now admitted that the situation isn’t good enough.

And it isn’t good enough.”
