Minecrafts Notch working on new game called Scrolls

first_imgWhen Minecraft first appeared for download no one could have foreseen how popular it was going to be. The one man developing it, Markus “Notch” Persson, certainly didn’t, but now he could sit back and relax watching the money roll in from his block world sandbox.But like all talented game designers, he’s not going to work on the same project forever and gets itchy feet, so it doesn’t come as a great surprise that the first details of his next game have appeared on the web. That game is called Scrolls and it couldn’t be more different from Minecraft.Unlike Minecraft this next game is not being created by a single person. It’s a team effort consisting of two people, the other person being Jakob Porser who is listed as lead designer on the new project.Scrolls is at its core an interactive collectible card game that has spent the last five years being created as an idea that could be turned into a game by the duo. It takes elements of both battle card games and board games to form a new strategy game with an emphasis on tactical gameplay.What both Notch and Porser want is an ever-changing strategy battle that allows you to compete against another opponent using a range of battle templates. They also want it to scale to allow for tournaments to take place and leagues to form around it. If nothing else it sounds as challenging and audacious as Minecraft did on paper.The game is in the very early stages of development at the moment with only concept art available to view. We can assume that this will be a digital card game, and there’s sure to be online gameplay elements. What game ships without them these days? And as Scrolls requires opponents it suggests that online will be a core prerequisite if the game is ever to work.Read more at the Scrolls website, via Eurogamer.netlast_img read more
