Mojang (Minecraft Developer) Announces New Game!
The game mixes elements of collectible card games, board games, and strategy games to create something awesome. There really isn't much information at all about the game but by analyzing the page a few things can be revealed. The description mentions exploring a world and destroying the evil within hinting at an open, explorable, RPG like world. Combat seems to be based around summoning monsters using collectible cards and casting spells granted by scrolls; mixing and matching different cards and scrolls to create a powerful force seems to be the main strategic element of the game.
Mojang also looks to be shooting for a competitive scene for this game; online battles and a ranked laddering system are mentioned as well as "quick, small sized tournaments to world championships!" They are certainly shooting for the stars with this game and if they could achieve even a fraction of the success with this game as they have Minecraft then they will be very well off indeed!
