Scrolls Will Launch Minecraft Style

Gamasutra has details from Gamelab 2011 in Barcelona, Spain on how Mojang's upcoming Scrolls will have a staggered rollout similar to the way Minecraft is creeping out bit-by-bit:
"With our new game, Scrolls, we'll follow the same formula as Minecraft," said Kaplan. "That means we'll release the game very early," at the minimal playable state.

He said this means something different for every game, of course, but people will be able to pay for it, play it, and give feedback from a very early stage. This also means frequent updates, he said, which need to be properly communicated to players, because community involvement is one of the most important elements of Minecraft.

I'll judge on merit. Minecraft was cheap enough to warrant a punt. Turned out ok and I had a good laugh. Oddly enough ive lost interest now - no matter how good it is. That being said, he got my cash and I got a decent amount of fun for it.

Scrolls might be the same, it depends how cheap it is.

In case you haven't been following it, 1.8 (the next version, they just realized 1.7 with Pistons (whoop!) ) Is supposed to have a full "Adventure" mode, with Quest and NPCs, etc. I have high hopes (I too quite playing Minecraft a few months ago, I hope the adventure mode brings me back)
