Did You Miss 'Humble Bundle Mojam'? Download 'Catacomb Snatch' Game for Free [Created by Mojang]


Humble Bundle team, together with Mojang (creators of Minecraft) started a new initiative Humble Bundle Mojam where Mojang developers livestreamed making of a game in 60 hours last weekend.

Thousands of people watched the game jam and pre-ordered the game by donating money (all proceeds going to charity).

So, after 60 hours they finished a game and named it Catacomb Snatch. They got a rather interesting Genre and Theme (decided by fans via a vote) - Mummies + Egypt + Steampunk. 

Take a look at Catacomb Snatch from the video below. Its quite impressive considering there was a time constraint of 60 hours.



Though the game looked great, it had bugs. So, UberSoft Tech took hold of the game and improved it by fixing lots of bugs. However, the game still crashes on Linux some times (ATI cards?). I hope that these bugs will be fixed eventually by UberTech.

Wait! How it is free?

Well, the game is supposed to be for donators only. However, after Mojam finished, Jakob Porser, co-founder Mojang tweeted that anyone can get it for free.
