There never seems to be a dull moment in Fortnite and its battle royale map. At any given moment, something random will happen that will affect the playing field for weeks at a time. Earlier on Wednesday, another random event has unfolded, leaving Fortnite players wondering what it all means.

But on Wednesday, the folks at Loot Lake (via Game Informer) observed the Cube spilling straight into the central lake. The cube subsequently melted and left the lake in a gelatinous, bouncy state.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
