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.

Community Spotlight: Hate-Me Gaming

leave a comment »

A crackling little gaming community if there ever was one.

These days it can be so difficult to find a group of like minded gamers who are both great gamers and great people (in my experience the former rarely breeds the latter).  It’s a relief then that community gaming website Hate-Me Gaming are some of the most passionate and welcoming gamers you could ever hope to run into.

Running the whole gamut of what you would expect from a quality, community focused gaming website, the talented chaps over at Hate-Me Gaming do pretty much everything ranging from hosting online gaming sessions, podcasts, video walkthroughs, their own Minecraft machima series and much more that it would be a crying shame not to get involved with them.

Their latest video output, a Day Z video diary chronicling a daring nighttime rescue can be seen below and is well worth casting your eyes across:
