Minecraft documentary

It's 85 minutes long, and it gets right into the meat of things. There are interviews with Notch, the Mojang crew, and game design luminaries, but the documentarians also capture the game's vibe in a way that few others do: that strange, expansive sense of place. You can download a DRM-free HD copy at the official website. [Video Link]

"Scrolls" trademark tussle settled

ZeniMax has settled a trademark claim against Minecraft-famed Mojang and its forthcoming fantasy-themed card game, Scrolls. ZeniMax is the holding company for Bethesda Softworks, creator of Skyrim and other games in the Elder Scrolls series of computer role-playing games. In the settlement, Mojang—which won early court tussles in its native Sweden—is permitted to publish the game under it's current title, but releases ownership of the "Scrolls" trademark to ZeniMax. No damages will be paid. [Indiegames]
