GDC 2011: Minecraft Developer's Next Game

Posted on Tuesday, March 1 @ 18:35:52 Eastern by Josh_Laddin


I never got into Minecraft myself. Not that I didn't want to, but after hearing how utterly absorbed people got once they tried it, I had to stay away. Between WoW, the games I play for work, and writing about them for the adoring public, it would be nigh-disastrous to get into another addictive time-sink (also the same reason I don't watch anime).

But for all the Minecraft nuts out there this is some good news: developer Mojang divulged details about their next game, simply called Scrolls, to Gamasutra during GDC today. The new game goes in quite a different direction for the young developer, revolving around card and board-game elements rather than world-building.

Players will apparently use scrolls to push against their opponent's line of defense on a chess-style board, and Mojang is looking to make both the trading and competitive battling aspects of the CCG genre important parts of Scrolls' online offerings.
