Starting this Friday, February 17th at 10 CET Mojang will be creating a new game LIVE with all of the money going to charity. With the help of our friends at HumbleBundle.com, we are having a fun game jam weekend! By donating, you will be given the game created in the 60 hours (and maybe some other fun things too).

We'll also have some fun and silly incentives for reaching certain amounts of money (like Aron FINALLY creating a Twitter account). We'll also be doing some giveaways and Q&A’s with the Mojangstas.

Make sure to follow @mojangteam and @notch for updates. Also use #Mojam to submit questions!

We want your help to choose the theme and the genre. The highest and lowest voted from each category will be combined for the game. Of course, you've always wanted to play a Shoot Em'Up Dating Simulator with a Candy Land World War II theme. Choose wisely!

See you this weekend!

Currently it looks like it's going to be a steampunk themed (my favourite) real time strategy. But I would also liked the ancient Egyptian. :)

Well what i really want would be a FPSMMO like a version of Skyrim Online but thats WAY too hard to make.

If you guys can make a game like Masters of Orion 1 or 2 but in real-time instead of Turn Based, can be in 2D but with a very customizable ship editor that allows you for example: place turret placements.
You can see nice customization on a game like Gratuitous Space Battles game, and also real good look 2D ships animations.

While this is a "Humble pack" you guys could make the "base" of the game for it and then released as a normal game with updates like you did Minecraft. Doesn't necessarily needs to be only 60 hours (start to end game development).

Well, (hopefully people will not kill me xD) if the bundle gives you Minecraft for those who past the average paid, you can count with my purchase ^^.

As for the theme suggestion, I would choose an all in one game, I mean Space/Planetary inside/outside vehicles game, with trade elements, more or less what Battlecruiser saga and Universal Combat is, but well done ^^ (Mostly impossible to do in the time limit but well, that's what I want to play right now ^^u)

Good luck with the bundle, see you guys, and have fun ^^
