This Friday gaming company Mojang will attempt to create a fully-functional new game in 60 hours. The event will be streamed live on on, a site that allows buyers to split the revenue between the developers, charities and humble bundle organizers. Mojang is currently polling the internet to determine the genre and theme of the game. Users can chose from genres including “Shoot ’em Up” or “Real Time Strategy,” and themes such as “Candy Land” or “Ancient Egypt.” All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to charity. According to a blog post on their website, Mojang will also be doing some giveaways and Q&As. In addition, twitter users can use the hashtag #Mojam to submit questions to the team while they code.
