The Humble Bundle Team and Mojang have just started their "Mojam"-Project.
Over the next 60 hours, Mojang, creators of Minecraft, will develop a simple Game from scratch. The whole process is gonna be streamed live via Twitch.tv and both Genre and Setting have been open for the community to decide over the last few days.
As Humble Bundle followers will know, it is all about Charity. Mojang and HB have decided to let you buy the result of these 60 hours for whatever price and get your money straight to either Child's Play, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, charity: water or the American Red Cross.
You even decide which organisation gets how much out of your donation. There's no Humble Tip this time, nothing goes to Mojang - it is pure charity!
The result of the Genre/Setting-Polls are the following:
Mojang is tackling a real-time strategy shoot 'em up with a steampunk ancient Egypt theme!Well, if that's what the Community decided (over 100.000 users' votes!), then Mojang will try their best to make something playable out of it.
They're brainstorming as I type this post, and I'm really curious what will happen til the end of the weekend...
I'll certainly have fun watching Notch and co at work - oh, and before I forget, Notch agreed to have his beard shaven if the bundle collects at least $1.000.000!
Head over to the Humble Bundle to check the project and pile in your coins!
