Mojang’s second ‘Mojam’ is underway, and you can buy whatever games emerge


Minecraft developers Mojang have decided it’s time to slam-jam for the next three days, embarking on the second ‘Mojam.’ In short, small teams of Mojang staff will be designing a (hopefully) functioning game in just 72 hours. You can even watch live while they do it. It’s underway right now.

Mojang aren’t alone in this sticky little jamfest; fellow indie devs Wolfire, Vlambeer and others will be joining them as well. And given that Wolfire are involved, you’d better believe that there’s a Humble Bundle tie-in.

Over at the Humble site, you can donate money to charity in return for receiving whatever delicious gaming fruits emerge from this brief tree of creativity. It’s like a normal Humble Bundle, but for prototypes.

What kind of games will be made? I have no idea, but the Mojam 2013 announcement suggests that the leading community word suggestions include “Nuclear,” “kittens,” “French” and “Endless.” So now seems as good a chance as any to get that game about Atomic Kitten being trapped forever in Paris.

    Eh I’ll wait till they are revealed. Not much faith in Mojang to do good, especially seeing the FLOSS C++ implementation of Minetest complete more development in a year than Mojang has in a couple for Minecraft. Not to say that spitefully, as I enjoyed the game, just not their slow development process.
