Mojang’s Scrolls returns as Caller’s Bane, completely free

A multiplayer game shutting down is always a sad thing. No matter how small the community behind it, there was a¬†community, and undoubtedly someone is going to lose their favourite game or - worse still - their favourite buddy online. As such, it brings a smile to my face to see that Mojang's ill-fated CCG/Hex-based strategy hybrid Scrolls¬†has officially relaunched, albeit under a different name.…

Mojang’s card game Scrolls shuts down next week

Scrolls, the battling card game from Minecraft studio Mojang, will finally shut down next week, on Tuesday the 13th of February. The official servers will shut down and the game become unplayable, though Mojang are hoping--not promising--that they will soon be able to release server software publicly so people can run their own. We've known for ages that Scrolls would shut down one day, since…

Mojang Winding Up Scrolls

When Minecraft made a squillion dollars, rather than plough into a sequel, developers Mojang Specifications realised they could fund making whatever games they jolly well pleased. Scrolls [official site] was their first whim, a battling collectible card game. And, since Microsoft bought Mojang, it might be one of their last too. The most recent Scrolls content update 'Echoes' will be its very last, Mojang have…

Keep Scrollin’ Scrollin’ Scrollin’: Mojang Release Scrolls

Well then, here it is: the second game from Minecraft developers Mojang. Scrolls officially launched yesterday, after almost two years in paid beta. The virtual collectible card game/board game was never going to be the next Minecraft, and they never intended for it to, so hey, let's forget all that and talk about what it is. It's out, for starters, at a new lower price…

Scrolls Rolled Out Next Week

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…

Roll Up: Scrolls Public Beta On Sale Next Month

Mojang's collectible digital card / turn-based strategy game Scrolls has been fairly quiet, publicly at least, since sort of winning, sort of losing their battle with Bethesda over the right to use a common English word. No longer, though - after an extended private alpha period, they're going to put the beta on sale late next month. As with Minecraft, it's a chance to pay…

Scroll Without It: The Small Print In Mojang vs Bethesda

Initially reports suggested the turf war between Minecraft-makers the Mojangs and Skyrim-makers the Bethesdas over the former's forthcoming online card game Scrolls had been settled broadly reasonably. However, Bethesda's own statement on the matter yesterday revealed that it isn't as simple as Mojang getting to make Scrolls unhindered and Bethesda ending up with the trademark for a common English word. Here's a new kicker: "The…

Notch Says Settle Scrolls Dispute Via Quake 3

Markus "Notch" Persson, creator of Minecraft, is currently in dispute with Bethesda over the trademark for "Scrolls". Mojang's next game is called Scrolls, which Bethesda says is too similar to The Elder Scrolls. A lack of hilarity ensues. Except now Notch has struck upon a potential solution. A Quake 3 match. He suggests three from Mojang take on three from Bethesda, pick a map each,…

Bethesda And Notch’s Scrolls-Off Explained

While Minecraft creator Marcus 'Notch' Persson remains an avowed fan of Bethesda games, the legal argy-bargy between the Elder Documents publisher and Notch's company Mojang over its forthcoming second game 'Scrolls' doesn't look like dying down any time soon. In fact, the big B has stepped up its efforts, announcing its intention to sue Mojang in a Swedish court, as well as a demand for…

Elder Scrolls vs Notch’s Scrolls?

Alleges Minecraft-maker Notch on Twitter: "Just got a letter from Bethesda's lawyers. They claim "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark and everyone will confuse it with Skyrim." No way/what/how/why/whatwhatwhat? What? Hopefully this is just crossed wires, an overzealous lawyer acting alone, a weird joke or othewise not actually happening. We've asked Bethesda for a statement. Let's wait for more information before we decide we know what's…
