    Mojam

    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.
