Mojang's Next, 'Scrolls' Heading Towards Closed Alpha, Release

The hex-based collectible card strategy game from the studio behind Minecraft is steadily nearing its release, according to a post from Mojang co-founder Jakob Porser.

The downloadable PC release, which will be both single and multiplayer focused, is heading along towards its closed Alpha with a planned open Beta. According to Porser, if you're interested in the game, you might want to participate in the Beta which will allow you to purchase the game down the line for a reduced price.

The Alpha will include multiplayer and player vs. AI matches along with the Deck Builder feature, but Porser says that this will be far from what the complete version of the game will look like.

The vision for the game is geared towards "digital online gaming, auction houses, single-player campaigns and an array of multi-player gaming modes such as friendly matches, tournaments and ranked matches." No word on a target release date or pricing for Scrolls.
