Mojang's 'Scrolls' nearing closed alpha, paid beta following

'Scrolls' is nearing the end of its closed alpha, will move into paid beta phase.

Scrolls, Mojang's deck-building tactical RPG, is approaching the beginning of its closed alpha and moving towards an open beta as the build becomes more stable.

The alpha version, though a "far from a feature complete version of the game," includes multiplayer and single-player versus AI matches, as well as the ability to create new decks with 100-plus scrolls currently in the game via the DeckBuilder.

The open beta version will be available at a reduced price and introduce a single-player campaign mode, in which players can explore the world on their own and battle enemies to obtain new scrolls.

"Keep in mind, that the beta will not be feature complete," Scrolls designer Jakob Porser posted on the game's official website this morning. Porser detailed features to be implemented over time, such as an auction house, character and item customization, and quests.

"If you're wondering why we would release a game that's obviously not finished, the reason is simple: We want your feedback in good time to help us shape Scrolls to be the next big online Collectible Card Game," Porser wrote.

Players interested in participating in the alpha can inquire on the official Scrolls forums. Along with the launch of the game's official website come the first in-game screenshots and gameplay trailer, which you can find below.
