Mojang’s Humble Bundle Mojam, the 60-hour game jam going on at the moment, has already raised $241,107 for charity – as of press time. The game, Catacomb Snatch, which is being developed live on the Internet, has been described as an “Egyptian steampunk RTS racing game,” and those who wish to pre-purchase the game before it’s even finished, can choose how much money dropped goes to the devs, Humble Bundle administration costs, and how much is given to charity. Mojang has previously said the amount it receives will be donated back to the charity. Also, if $1 million is reached, Notch will supposedly shave his beard. Oxeye Game Studios and Wolfire Games are also in on the development mix, with the former creating a dungeon crawler brawler set during a “post-apocalyptic World War II”, and the later working with Mojang on its title. Oxeye’s effort will be included in the bundle. You can watch the development process live through here.

Independent developer Wolfire’s nightmare has found some resolution, as the illegal copy of Lugaru undercutting the official release’s sales has mysteriously vanished from the App Store.
Although Wolfire are within their rights, the team are sympathetic to those who feel cheated by the withdrawal of the pretender, and are offering a free copy of the full game.
