Minecraft creator Mojang today announced a partnership with the Humble Indie Bundle, that will have the studio create a game over the coming weekend, with all proceeds from purchases going to charity. Starting at 10am CET on February 17, the Mojang team will develop a new game over the space of 60 hours, with all the work live-streamed via the Humble Indie Bundle website, under the name "Humble Bundle Mojam." This type of partnership is a first for the Humble Indie Bundle, and also is indicative of the close relationship to the video game community that Mojang has become known for. Users who donate money via the HIB website will be given access to the game once it is complete, along with a number of "fun and silly incentives," said Mojang on its official blog. It also plans to do a variety of question and answer sessions with members of the team during the 60 hour run. The team is also looking for users to help it choose the genre and theme of the game, with possibilities ranging from "Dating Simulator" to "Peter Molyneux."
