The Humble Indie Bundle people are gearing up for their next event, the Humble Bundle Mojam, and this one's pure charity. Humble fans voted on which game they wanted to see the folks at Mojang (creators of Minecraft) make, and over the weekend, Mojang is going to build it, live and on camera, in 60 hours. At any time, you can buy Mojang's new game at any price you name, and all the proceeds will go to up to four charities of your choosing. As of 4AM on the Friday it kicks off, the project has raised about $17,000 for charity, and it's just getting started.
Mojang has one weekend to make your game — live! The indie studio Mojang will be livestreaming all the glory and drama of making a brand new game in 60 hours. Based on a poll of more than 100,000 users, Mojang is tackling a real-time strategy shoot 'em up with a steampunk ancient Egypt theme!
Pay-what-you-want for the game any time during the jam. Use the form below to pre-purchase the game and support vital charities.
All proceeds go to charity! You can support up to four vital non-profit organizations: The Child's Play Charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Red Cross, and — for the first time in a Humble Bundle — charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
Humble Bundle Mojam This Weekend!
