We have something very interesting happening this weekend you guys! Grin

The guys at mojang are getting together with Humble Bundle, and are going to livestream for SIXTY hours a creation of a game!  All the money will be donated to charity, and we get to choose the themes and genre!

Humble Bundle "Mojam"

This will start Friday, and will be all weekend!  By donating you'll automatically get the game, and maybe some other stuff...  They'll also be doing some giveaways and Q&A's with the team!  And there will be some other incentives to donate more/reach a certain target! Wink

GO HERE to vote for the genre (and sort of get more information)!  The highest, and lowest, voted for both genre and theme will be combined for the game!  

This all sounds interesting imo, I look forward to seeing this expand!


EDIT:

Well it's friday, and they've started the bundle!  The genre/theme will be:
real-time strategy shoot 'em up with a steampunk ancient Egypt theme

The charities are:
American Red Cross
Charity: Water
EFF
Childs Play


Lets see how this goes :p

Welll I think it is interesting at least!  Mojang is working with humble bundle to raise money for charity!  Basically, people will "donate" money much like a normal Humble Indie Bundle, however all proceeds will go to charity.  So there will be no splitting the money between HIB tip, Developers, and charity!

And what you're donating for, aside for charity that is!, is a game that will be developed in ~60 hours by the mojang team (ie, minecraft developers) and it will all be livestreamed!  During the live stream, they'll have giveaways and q&a from staff!  At the end, everyone who donates gets a game, and perhaps other "goodies" will be added as well.

We all have a chance to vote for what we would theme/genre we would like to see, and the top voted and least voted for in each category will be combined, ie rts & dungeon crawler genre, with wwii & steampunk theme.


I kind of wonder if they got the idea to live stream it all from Double Fine's kickstarter's 30$+ contribution (the video documentary on the development of their game).  Would make sense, considering notch has talked to tim (from double fine) about making psychonauts 2, and is sort of what inspired tim/double fine to start the kickstarter....
