Mojam 2 Bundle Raises Total of $517K for EFF, Block by Block

March 4, 2013 -

Fundraising for the Humble Mojam 2 Bundle officially closed on March 2, with two charities benefitting from the $517,555.12 raised during and after the 72-hour game jam ended. The Mojam 2 game jam produced several games during its 72-hour run including Vlambeer's Wasteland Kings, Tektonic by Grapefrukt, Space Hunk from Ludosity, Oxeye’s 3918, a 3D multiplayer shooter called Low-light by Wolfire Games, and four games from Mojang teams - Nuclear Pizza War, Endless Nuclear Kittens, Battle Frogs and Nuke the Dinosaurs.

That $517,555.12 will go to Block by Block (a joint initiative between Mojang and UN Habitat) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). During the charity drive 86,536 bundles were sold, with Linux users once again showing that they are willing to pay above and beyond what users on other platforms will pay. The average overall price was $5.98; the average Windows price was $5.87, while Mac users paid an average price of $6.22; and Linux users paid an average price of $7.13.

The biggest contribution was an anonymous one to the tune of $100,000.

Nuclear Pizza War alone was worth the price of admission.  Jeb did a fine job on that game.

All we need now is to see Notch without his beard!
