Mojang’s fantasy card-deck battle game thing arrives next week! Scrolls, as it is so legally called, has been impressing a wave of beta-tester people with its tight production and carefully poised strategy mechanics. There’s a good chance that this will be the deck-building strategy of 2013. Not that there’s a lot of competition there, but you get the idea. Yeah. Anyway, it makes it official debut next week.
Fancy launch trailer below!
For more insight into the workings of Scrolls, you could have a read of Mr Stanton’s preview, where he says: “Scrolls isn’t about winning another slew of industry awards, revolutionising entertainment or even selling millions of copies. Scrolls is about making a great strategy game out of classic elements, and reinvigorating them with clever rules. So much so that it feels weirdly like a labour of love, or an homage, in certain respects.But let me put it very simply. Do you like card battling or turn-based strategy games? If the answer’s yes, prepare to like Scrolls an awful lot.”
