With the release of the fifteenth expansion for Blizzard’s Hearthstone this month - Scholomance Academy - we sit down with the development team to learn about its development.

A snippet.
“With Hearthstone even when we're post-apocalyptic, as with Ashes of Outland, we're still pretty whimsical,” Chadd Nervig, Senior Game Designer on the Hearthstone Card Design tells me. “But this is definitely more front-facing whimsy. Scholomance as a setting gave us lots of ideas too, with one of those ideas being Studies. So, we wanted to come up with designs for a series of cards that would exemplify that, all the different ways across different subjects. We have a series of cards called Studies that discover some type of thing, and then your next one of that type of thing costs one less.”

As a competitive card game that celebrated its sixth anniversary earlier this year it’s this tone and putting a spin on the Warcraft-universe that drives the team to keep pushing the competitive card game genre forward.

“It is a Hearthstone twist on this place called Scholomance from WoW (World of Warcraft),” Chad explains. “We pulled from our own histories with school, college, university. I had to pick some of the fun tropes there, the common themes that we can all rally around. The troublemaker, the bully, the guy flipping his pen constantly in class next to you and being annoying.”
