Games There are two reasons for this news item. First, I want this issue resolved. Second, it allows me to post the most awesome picture ever and ever. The story is simple. Mojang, the company behind the immensely successful Minecraft, is working on a second game called 'Scrolls', which has been in development for a while now. As it turns out, Bethesda has sent a cease and desist notice to Mojang - they claim 'Scrolls' infringes on 'The Elder Scrolls' trademark. As a fan of both Minecraft and Bethesda, this is just silly.

Not even sure how Minecraft (it didn't capitalize the C?) got away with a craft in it's name without the Blizzard hounds (lawyers). But now Scrolls and Elder Scrolls are so confusing... aren't they?

FreeCraft is a clone of WarCraft, Minecraft is not related to any blizzard game. That's probably why.
