Minecraft livestreams video game design marathon for charity

Mojang, creators of Minecraft, live stream a 60 hour marathon of game design for charity.

Always the Good Guy Gregs, the creators of Mincraft — Mojang — will be livestreaming the creation of a new game for charity. The stream, which will be live until Sunday, will show the magnanimous Swedes creating a new game while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity during a 60 hour marathon. Those who would like to purchase the game can choose to donate any amount of money to the Electronic Frontiers Foundation, Child's Play, Charity: Water, and the American Red Cross.

Minecraft took the gaming world by storm last year allowing players to create entire 3D worlds using textured cubes. Since its release, players have created everything from full scalde models of the USS Enterprise to the Taj Mahal.
