Inscryption

released on Oct 19, 2021

Inscryption is an inky black card-based odyssey that blends the deckbuilding roguelike, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror into a blood-laced smoothie. Darker still are the secrets inscrybed upon the cards...

I'm only 12 hours in but this game has been a fantastic ride. I could've done without the RPG section though.


I enjoyed this a great deal, but it's absolutely one of those games where to say too much about it would immediately spoil it. Suffice to say, if you own a PC that can run it (and the requirements are pretty modest) then it's definitely a game to check out, even if you don't typically enjoy games of this type; I'm not normally one for rogue-like card games, but once I got into this I found I couldn't stop playing.

Compelling, disturbing, very clever and entirely unique. A definite recommend from me, and the best game I've finished so far in 2022.

9/10


Daniel Mullins strikes again with more meta-horror madness. Believe the hype.


Inscryption é um jogo acima da média, com mecânicas incríveis e uma dificuldade bem elevada (às vezes até injusta). O jogo conta com diversos elementos de gêneros como Roguelike, RPG, Puzzle Room, entre outros, que agregam bastante no produto final. A arte é impecável e os personagens (Leshy S2), assim como a história, são bem cativantes. O único porém é sobre o segundo e terceiro ato, que literalmente te jogam mecânicas do céu, sendo exaustivo pra pegar tudo e tendo um "downgrade" se comparados ao primeiro ato.


'Inscryption' is a difficult game to come to a conclusion on. If I were to have stopped playing after Act 1 I would have considered it my game of the year easily. The nature in which the deck-building gameplay was built was so distinctive with its emphasis on sacrifice and how those sacrifices affected each battle and overall run. It was so integral in the experience that it constantly surprised me with how the theme reared its head in with some truly grotesque moments. I really don't want to spoil much since that was why I fell hopelessly addicted to Act 1 despite a few issues with how bosses acted with reruns. That being said there are things that occur later in the game that really did not mesh well with me. Without going too deep into it what follows Act 1 the rest of the game was either painfully easy or remixed things in less compelling ways. I know that's vague but this game is one that requires a blind eye to fully enjoy. That beginning act alone made this game so special and the main reason why I'd consider this as one of the better games of the year, just a shame the rest didn't follow suit.


shits fucking hard but holy shit this game hooked me the atmosphere is amazing, also pretty challenging, will continue.
