Mojang Still Fully Intends To Bring Scrolls To Linux

Posted by , | Views: 6,847
As more months pass by I wonder if my purchase of Scrolls was a write-off, thankfully not as Mans Olson from Mojang has confirmed Linux is still on the list.

Scrolls is Mojang's latest game featuring decks of cards that come alive on the battlefield as you battle it out with another player across the world on an AI. Thankfully the creators of Minecraft have confirmed to me again that Linux will still happen for Scrolls.

@gamingonlinux Not in theory - it just takes time, and there's a priority list that needs to be taken into consideration.

So folks you heard it here first, it will still come to Linux. If like me you purchased it on their statements before fear not they do hear us!


I have personally tested a bit of it in the past and it's actually pretty decent and it sucked a few hours of my life away, cannot wait to see it on Linux.

There are three card games that will get players:
1. Scrolls - Win/Lin/Mac - Paid
2. Faeria  - Win/Lin/Mac - Paid - ( closed beta )
3. Hearthstone - Win/Mac - Free - ( closed beta )

Scrolls & Hearthstone are more casual than Faeria.
Faeria got more than cards to play, You have to shape the terrain & keep economy ( gold & faeria [ kind of mana ] ).
I think that Faeria will be the best card game of this/next year.

For best, check them all & choose

Faerie was also abandoned by its developers and the Linux version is never getting a proper Steam release.

Well for now Faeria in Linux is only browser ( Flash ), but from what I know ( )they want to use Unity engine, so Linux support all the way.
