Minecraft Released! What Is Mojang Up To Now?


Do you love Minecraft? Well, if you do then you should look forward to the new games in development from Mojang. The minds behind everyone’s favourite cuboid construction simulator have announced that they are working on three new titles. Unfortunately we can only give you the what’s what on two of the upcoming titles as Mojang are keeping everything under their hat! Read on to find out about the awesome games that are headed by Markus “Notch” Persson.

Cobalt

The first is Cobalt, an action platformer and Mojangs first 3rd party published game and is being developed by Oxygen game studio. The player will take control of an adorable gun-toting cyborg called Metalface (MK 1).

What is known so far is that the game will come with a single player campaign and multiplayer which will include game modes such as team deathmatch and capture the plug. Game footage is showing the combat to be fast and fluid with a visual style like a cyberpunked Terraria. On top of all that Cobalt will come with a game editor, allowing players to make their own levels and as if that weren’t enough Cobalt will also allow the player to create new game modes and new platform games entirely if they are up to the challenge.

If that sounds good to you then you can sign up for the Alpha at the Cobalt homepage.

Scrolls

Set up to provide Mojang fans with their fantasy fix; players will be given control over a number of the titular scrolls. Each of which has its own unique effect ranging from casting lightning bolts to summoning monsters (Sound familiar?). Scrolls is being spearheaded by Mojang designer Jakob Porser who describes the game as an idea he and fellow designer “Notch” Persson have been working on for a long time now.

Porser claims that they are aiming to create a strategy game that combines elements of both collectible card games and board game mechanics. The team is also promising players the chance for multiplayer matches and even full on tournaments. If all goes well Scrolls could amass a following to rival that of the companies flagship title, Minecraft.
