Minecraft developer Mojang’s Markus Notch Persson and Jakob Porser have announced a new game at GDC 2011 called Scrolls, a digital collectible card game board game. The game is being created with story help from Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins, and art by demaker Jnkboy as well.
Word is that “Scrolls is Mojang’s next game and offers a new and unique game play where you fight to outmaneuver your opponent on the battlefield using the destructive powers in your collection of magical scrolls. Tear your opponent limb from limb with the might of your summoned armies, lay waste to the defenses with the obliterating power of your siege weapons or open up the very skies and let bolts of lightning shower his minions until only ash remains. The road to victory is yours to choose. Obtain the powerful scrolls and decide which ones you will take to battle as you fight to become the mightiest Magician of all.”
