Mojang Working Hard On Scrolls, Getting Close To Alpha Release

Since the phenomenal release of Minecraft, Mojang has been busy with numerous things. They’ve moved into a larger office, Notch has been adventuring via Twitter, and the development team has been busy with their new title, Scrolls. The developer recently won a legal battle with Bethesda over the name of their new game, and ever since then they’ve had fire under their heels to get it complete.

The game is nearing its alpha release, and the “paid beta” model that we saw with Minecraft won’t be specific to that game. Scrolls will release the same way, and with the alpha release fast approaching, this is some great news to hear. Jakob Porser, Mojang’s Co-Founder, said that the closed alpha will “be far from a feature complete version of the game.” It will, however, incluse “multiplayer matches, single-player matches vs AI, and the Deck Builder, where you can build your decks out of the 100+ scrolls that currently exist in the game.”

As the developers continue work on the game, it will eventually enter its beta phase. At that point players can pay to purchase their beta copy at a reduced price “with some added benefits.” The beta, while being paid for, won’t be complete either, which is understandable. With the way that Minecraft took off, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to grab Scrolls when it’s in the beta as well. You’ll get extra benefits, a reduced price, and your own copy of the game. A new trailer has released for the game, so if you want to see it in action before you commit, go ahead and take a look.
