Mojang's Minecraft follow-up Scrolls is now in alpha testing, and invite codes for the collectible card-battling RPG are now being distributed via e-mail.
The alpha version of Scrolls includes deck-building functionality, a single-player battle against an AI-controlled opponent, and a multiplayer mode with random matchmaking.
"Scrolls is still missing a lot of features and content that we plan on implementing over the upcoming months," Mojang's Jakob Porser warns. "Also keep in mind that we probably will be changing many of the current scrolls in the game during this time."
If you applied for alpha testing but haven't yet received an invitation, don't lose hope; Mojang's Daniel Frisk assures that alpha access is growing slowly. Keep an eye on your e-mail! What's more, MineCon 2011 attendees get the entire game for free!
