Scrolls, the strategy digital collectible card game developed by Minecraft maker Mojang, finally shuts down on Tuesday, 13th February.
Minecraft maker Mojang will stop you from spending too much on its collectible card game Scrolls so you don't break its balance.
Mojang has cut the price of card game Scrolls ahead of its launch on tablets.
The Swedish developer - recently bought by Microsoft for $2.5bn - thought that the $21 Scrolls wouldn't do well on platforms popular for their dirt cheap games. And in an effort to preserve cross-platform play with the PC and Mac versions, it came up with the idea of shaving $5 off the price.
"Our current price of $21 isn't feasible for tablets," Mojang said in an update on the Scrolls website.
Mojang's card combat game Scrolls is coming to iPads and other tablets, the developer has announced.
Scrolls, the virtual card battling game from the company behind Minecraft, goes into open beta on 3rd June.
It costs £13 / €15 / $20 and is available for PC and Mac.
Mojang released a launch trailer, below, to mark the occasion.
It would be thematically neat and tidy to suggest that, if Mojang's first game is all about the joys of creativity, its second is more concerned with the dark charms of destruction. That might not be entirely true, however. As anyone who's ever built a tower of TNT blocks in Minecraft will tell you, Notch's runaway indie hit is entirely comfortable with the ancient art of blowing things to pieces. Equally, while Scrolls is a smart combination of card battler and board game where the emphasis lies with taking out your enemy's units and ultimately destroying the idols they're protecting, throw in a deck building component, and you've got plenty of more constructive delights to lose yourself within.
Scrolls enters its alpha stage today and developer Mojang has begun sending out codes to prospective players.
