Mojang, the developers of the indie builder MineCraft, have several other games on the way. In addition to Scrolls, they're developing three other unannounced titles.
One of the games is being helmed by Markus "Notch" Persson, the creator of MineCraft and founder of Mojang. Mojang CEO Carl Manneh told Edge that Persson's project is still in its early stages.
"What it is today, I don't think he knows himself. We certainly don't," said Manneh. "It's probably going to be a lot of testing and playing around to see what works."
The two other games are much further along. Manneh said they'll be announced, and maybe released, in the first half of 2012.
"They will have a big impact on Mojang over the next year. I can't talk about them, because we have NDAs with companies. Otherwise, we want to be very transparent about everything we do, but in this case we can't."
The full version of MineCraft was released in November of last year. The game had been in beta testing since the previous year. An Xbox 360 port with Kinect support is in development but is being handled by 4J Studios rather than Mojang.
Scrolls, though announced back in March 2011, is still a bit of a mystery. It's a role-playing game that will utilize elements from collectible card games and board games. It's said to be "coming eventually."
