The RPG Scrollbars: In The Cards

These days, you're just not a proper RPG unless you've got a fancy card-game spin-off either in or out of world. Gwent. Hearthstone. Arcomage. Triple Triad. Legends of Norrath. Pokemon CCG. Now The Elder Scrolls is throwing its adventurer's cap into the ring with The Elder Scrolls: Legends, as announced aeons ago, but only just going into closed beta. Quite a gold-rush, especially given that…

Hands On: Scrolls

We sent Rich Stanton to the exotic location in front of his keyboard to play Scrolls, the next game from Minecraft maker's Mojang, which is currently in the throes of its alpha test stage. Needless to say, the deck-based card game has some familiar influences. I'm going to tell you about Scrolls, the new game from Mojang, but first it's confession time. This is the…

Unfurled: Scrolls Alpha Starts Today

Mojang's card combat game, Scrolls, enters its alpha state today, with a random selection of those who signed up due to receive email invites. Alpha accounts supply a full set of scrolls, access to the deck builder, a basic single player mode, multiplayer and a tutorial. That sounds like a decent amount of things to be getting on with. I'm hoping the single player campaign…

All Hands On Decks: Scrolls Alpha “Rapidly Approaching”

Scrolls, the collectible card game in development at Mojang, will soon be in closed alpha state and once stable enough will switch to a purchasable beta. The alpha will have AI opponents, allowing for the single player to test out his decks, but it won't include the campaign mode, a world through which the player travels, picking fights to add new cards to his/her collection.…

Notch And Bethesda Settle On Scrolls

Because we, as a species, have allowed our reality to become so ridiculous that people can own the rights to a noun, there has been an ongoing battle between Bethesda and Mojang over the right to use the word "Scrolls" in a game name. Bethesda's very long running The Elder Scrolls first-person RPG is utterly indistinguishable from Mojang's card-collecting Scrolls. Wait, is it the other…

Titles And Tactics: The Making Of Scrolls

Here's the first part of a documentary following the making of Mojang's new game Scrolls. It's a shame that, as with most of the discussion elsewhere, so much of this concerns the name rather than the game, but it's still worth a watch if only to see the legal issue being discussed by the lead designer. Especially because he's looking rather dapper while discussing it,…

The Name Game: Inside The “Scrolls” Case

As you are likely already aware, Minecraft-makers Mojang are currently embroiled in the first stage of legal proceedings brought about by The Elder Scrolls-makers Bethesda, in a dispute over whether the name "Scrolls" can be used for the title of the second game. Keen to find out a little more about what it all means, I had a chat with Alex Chapman, an intellectual property…

Also Notchian: Scrolls Details, Video

Or should that be Mojangian? Probably, as this is information from exciting Jakob Porser, rather than boring old Notch. And will it still be called Scrolls after the Bethesda lawyer-machine is done with it? I don't. I just don't know. What I do know is that details have emerged about how the game will work (via VG247). Speaking at PAX the Scrolls designer explained that…

The Younger Scrolls: Mojang Prepping Alpha

You there! You look like a Minecraft player to me. Well, how do you fancy maybe being one of the first to try out its developer's next game, Scrolls? There's nothing certain quite yet, but if you opt-in to the Scrolls newsletter you now also have the option to register your interest in helping test (and have early access to) the fantasy card-battler. There's no…

A Day In The Life Of Minecraft Creator Mojang

With exclusive access to Minecraft creators Mojang, I spent a day with Markus 'Notch' Persson and his team in their Stockholm offices, from the first meeting of the morning to the Friday afternoon's booze and gaming relaxation. With kebab in between. Notch talks to us about how he came to be in the position he's now in, his intentions for Minecraft and Scrolls, and the…

Minecraft Creators Reveal New Game: Scrolls

It's an RPS ultra-news. There’s a new game from Minecraft creators Mojang, and we can tell you what it’s called: Scrolls. We can tell you what it is: it's a collectable card game-meets-board game. And more than that, we can tell you a great deal about it. I travelled to Mojang’s headquarters in Stockholm to meet Markus "Notch" Persson and the team behind this new…
