Mojam, Minecraft developer Mojang's annual game jam, begins tomorrow at 6 p.m. ET, and the company is soliciting votes to inspire its upcoming creations, according to a post on the developer's official blog.
During this year's Mojam, the developer will split up into two teams. Each will create a game based on answers to a survey that asks blog visitors to pick two words from a list that includes everything from "1999" to "intimidate" to "wipe." The developer will use two highest-voted suggestions "to help inspire our Mojang creations." Mojang will also provide livestreams of the game jam, presumably on its Twitch.tv channel.
During the game jam, anyone who donates to Block by Block, a collaboration between the United Nations and Mojang to help young people get involved with urban planning, or the the Electronic Frontier Foundation will "will get to play the final games we create, along with any builds we release during the ‘Jam."
Other developers participating in Mojam this year include Grapefrukt, Ludosity, Oxeye Game Studio, Vlambeer and Wolfire Games. Mojam runs through 6 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 23.
