GDC 11: Mojang’s new game is called Scrolls

Ah, yes — now I can see why the team at Mojang seemed slightly worried during this documentary about how people were going to react to Minecraft‘s successor. (Not to say those fears were warranted.) It’s a collectible card game dubbed Scrolls, as revealed today during GDC.

The official site is already up. It seems lead designer Jakob Porser and Minecraft creator Markus Persson had brainstormed the idea years ago as something they’d enjoy playing — something that didn’t exist. So, naturally, there was only one way to fix the problem.

According to Gamasutra, Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins is working with Mojang on developing the story for Scrolls. It’s also worth noting that alpha and beta builds will be offered in some capacity to the public, which the studio should have down to a science by now.
