Mojang Releases New Gameplay Trailer For ‘Scrolls’ – Alpha Release Very Soon

leave a comment »

Minecraftian codeshop Mojang has today brought to light their release strategy for their ambitious card-battling game ‘Scrolls’.

Posting on the relaunched Scrolls website, Mojang co-founder Jakob Porser let all and sundry know that a closed alpha version of the game, featuring multiplayer matches, single-player matches and Deck Builder, will debut very soon indeed.

In fact, to use his exact words, Jakob said that the alpha release for Scrolls was ‘rapidly approaching’ and that at some point after the alpha launched, Mojang will, pending stablity of code, release the open-beta version of the software.  From here you will be able to purchase the game cheaper than if you merely bought the game when it reaches completion.  Like it’s predecessor Minecraft, we can expect a veritable bevy of features to be included in Scrolls as development for the game matures.  One example of which was the addition of an auction house which would be used for the buying and selling of the titular scrolls (cards, effectively).

Not ones to merely let us hang on words alone, Mojang have kindly supplied a brand new gameplay trailer for us to be getting on with which you can see below:

Scrolls is due for release sometime late this year for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux platforms.

One of the reasons why I love the indie gaming scene, besides the general positive swell in innovation, is the pricing.  Generally, indie games find themselves subject to more sales per year than Lindsay Lohan does DUI infractions and the nattily named ‘Because We May’ sale is one more example of independent creativity being sold on the cheap.  Below, are links to the various sale category listings such as iOS, Direct PC, Steam, Android, Mac and everything else.

Direct PC:  http://www.becausewemay.com/direct.html

iOS: http://www.becausewemay.com/ios.html

MAC: http://www.becausewemay.com/mac.html

Android: http://www.becausewemay.com/play.html

Steam: http://www.becausewemay.com/steam.html

Other: http://www.becausewemay.com/other.html

Particuarly for mobile gamers, there are a lot of decent discounts there on some cracking little titles.  I mean really, if the likes of Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor and Waking Mars at their reduced prices don’t cause you to plunge your hand in your pocket; you must be some sort of disgusting pervert or something.

Creativity on the cheap is a GOOD THING.
