Mojang, Humble Indie Bundle game jam raises $458K for charity

February 20, 2012 | By Mike Rose




Newsbrief: Minecraft creator Mojang and the Humble Indie Bundle have raised nearly half a million dollars for charity as part of their 60-hour game jam over the weekend.

The "Humble Bundle Mojam" ran from February 17-19 and raised $458,207.95 in total, with developers from Mojang, Cobalt developer Oxeye Game Studio and Overgrowth Wolfire Games making games for anyone who donated money through the HIB website.

The money went towards four charities -- Child's Play, Electronic Frontier Foundation, charity: water and the American Red Cross.

Mojang developed a game called Catacomb Snatch, while Wolfire released The Broadside Express to donors. Oxeye's Fists of Resistance is yet to be released, although a build is promised soon.
