Not To Be Confused With Molyjam: Mojang's Mojam 2

Notachalade

As we all know, the free-to-play Facebook game Minecraft 2: Steve’s Magic Garden launches its Kickstarter on Christmas Day this year, published by Activision, funded by the Bulgarian mafia and available exclusively on Origin. But given that’s just a reskinned FarmVille clone that they’ll knock out in five minutes, what are Minecraft-makers Mojang spending their time doing in the meantime?

One of those things is their second Mojam, wherein the Scandi-devs splinter into small groups, rope in famous friends such as Vlambeer, Wolfire and Grapefrukt, and frantically try to make new, teeny games within a strict time limit. Humble Bundle are once again in on the act, with a pay-what-you-want deal for the resultant games, all proceeds going to good causes. By which I don’t mean another platinum hat and diamond-tipped beard-trimmer for Notch.

The jam kicks off at 9AM PST/5PM Imperial British Regal Time today, and runs for 78 hours, wrapping up 3PM PST/11PM IBRT this Saturday. You’ll be able to watch a free livestream of the whole shebang here once it kicks off.

The full list of devs involved is Mojang, Grapefrukt, Ludosity, Oxeye Game Studio, Vlambeer, and Wolfire Games. There’ll be some manner of concept for the jam, which has yet to be announced, but frankly I’m confident that the studios involved can turn out some pretty neat/insane stuff based on any suggestion.

All proceeds go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and youth scheme Block by Block, with donors splitting their payment as they see fit. Mojam 1 raised $400k, and hopefully this one will do better.
