The lights are on
If you've been waiting to play the card-based strategy game from the studio that brought you Minecraft, the time is almost at hand. Developer Mojang released a launch trailer for Scrolls, and revealed that you can start playing next week on June 3. According to the official Scrolls site, the June 3 release isn't the official release, however. As the studio had discussed, Scrolls will have an open beta during which time players can buy and play the game at a lower price. The cost on June 3 is $20, and the game is available on both PC and Mac.Learn more and see the game in action by watching the trailer below.

Looks interesting, but haven't been a card player since 10th grade.
im looking forward to trying this game out on beta
I feel like this company is going to ride off of the success of minecraft and not make another game which will break through to such a wide audience again.
Actually kind of liking the idea of a Card game. Not completely original but I like it.
Hmm, $20 eh? I'll have to think about it... It looks promising, but card-based combat games aren't exactly my forte...
i dont think i'll get this,i dont really like card games.
maybe mojangs next game will be one i like.
This doesn't even remotely interest me. Mojang, stick to new creative ideas like you did with Minecraft, not boring card games.
I don't mean to be an ass with this comment as I have a lot of respect for what he did with Minecraft, but:
1) This is far from being original in any shape or form what-so-ever;
2) I've seen Freeware games (not talking F2P, actual freeware, mostly community-driven - which is even messier - games) that look MUCH better than this.
Good luck keeping this one in the spotlight. I bet against it.
I was interested until i found out it was a card game. Card games have never done anything for me. It should have been something new and innovative.
Eh, I'm interested. It does look a lot like a horizontal, card based (and not necessarily matching based) version of Might and Magic's Clash of Heroes.. or whatever it was called. Fun game, and if this can recreate a similar timing based, break through the enemies' line type thing, I'm all for it.
Looks alright, but just not what I was expecting. For all we know though they could potentially change the card-based gaming franchise forever. They already did the same with the open-world sandbox franchise with Minecraft. You never know what could happen...
I'm not really into card games, but maybe Mojang can change my mind. Epic music, at least.
o man, its a card game -_-. Well way to go like we don't have enough of those.
