Humble Bundle Mojam Has Already Broken $100K for a Game Mojang Hasn’t Made Yet
Jeez, it’s just “pay a developer in support of a theoretical game” month, isn’t it.
In a similar but not quite the same vein as Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert’s efforts with Double Fine Adventure, players can pay what they want for an unreleased, unknown and un-made game from Minecraft makers Mojang in the latest Humble Bundle. It’s called the Humble Bundle Mojam, and it finds the developer making a game for the bundle in only a single weekend: this weekend.
So far, the game has been described as an “Egyptian steampunk RTS racing game,” and already the Humble Bundle Mojam has raked in more than $100,000. As with all Humble Bundles, not all of that money is going to Mojang (unlike Double Fine’s Kickstarter campaign). Players can choose how much of the money they choose to pay for the game goes to the developer, how much goes to Humble Bundle for administration, and how much goes to the bundle’s favorite charities, Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Get on over the HumbleBundle.com and you can snag the Mojam game any time during this weekend. You can also watch a live feed of the game being made.
