Mojang is in full swing with their Humble Bundle project, Mojam! What is it? Simple! Mojang is writing a fully complete, playable game from scratch in the span of a weekend! As with previous Humble Bundles, you can pay whatever you like to get the game upon completion, and all proceeds will go to your choice of four excellent charities. Taking feedback from their earlier poll on the topic (with over 100,000 votes!), Mojang is teaming up with Humble Bundle founding team Wolfire Games to create a real-time strategy shoot-em-up, with an Egyptian steampunk theme! Cobalt creators Oxeye Game Studios are tackling an equally ambitious project - a dungeon-crawler beat em' up set in post-apocalyptic World War 2!

There's more - you can also hit up their Google Moderator session for some Q&A! We will be updating all links regularly (included below in a list for your convenience), so be sure to check back often. Good luck to Mojang, Wolfire and Oxeye on your upcoming titles, we're looking forward to it!







Updates!

Why do they keep doing that stupid thing with the videos? Why can't they just embed the Youtube videos instead of putting a misleading picture?

The game genres are screwed up, but they still sound very fun.

I made my donations. I couldn't help myself after I realized they named the game Catacomb Snatch.  :iapprove:
Plus, you get to decide how the money is divided up among the available charities!

You get a link to download all of the games under construction once you donate, and you get to play a test version of Mojang's right now. There's not a whole lot to it yet though.

I'm liking the teams' progress so far, but the names are a bit wonky. We have the Mojang livestream with Oxeye on it at night, and the normal team during the day.

This. This so much. It just seems pointless and inconvenient.

The Game.
