Minecraft Developer Announces New Game

Mojang the Swedish video game Developer founded by Markus Persson is known for creating the hugely-successful indie game Minecraft.  That game is already a huge hit, despite the fact that it isn’t actually done yet, so it seems inevitable that Mojang would have plans to make another game someday.  Well, those plans are a little further along than previously thought, because they’ve already announced the new project.  It’s a free-to-play strategy/ collectible card game called Scrolls.

Scrolls takes place in a fantasy setting, and players will use the titular parchment rolls to cast spells and summon units in gameplay.  Because it is a free-to-play game, players will have the option to buy additional in-game scrolls with real-world money.  Details on gameplay and story are still sketchy, but we do know that Jerry Holkins (Tycho from Penny Arcade) has been brought in to help write the game’s backstory.  

No gameplay images are available, but concept art has been released, along with some verse to get you in the mood for some swords & sorcery.

“Words that leap like living blades!
That thurst to kill, and not be killed,
Come, curving bow! Come, blue-eyed wolf;
The means to wage a war distill’d!”
