Mojang cuts price of Scrolls ahead of tablet launch

"As you probably already know, games are cheap on those things."

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.

"As you probably already know, games are cheap on those things. Free-to-play would be an option, but we're not keen on the way that that form of monetisation can affect gameplay."

So, $5 off, and existing customers get a $20 shard package at no additional cost.

Scrolls, developed by Mojang but not by Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson, is set to come out of beta by late autumn, so expect to hear a lot more about it soon.
