Inscryption is a unique blend of horror, strategy, and puzzle game that will test your wits, and your courage, all at the same time. 

Developed by the creator behind The Hex, Inscryption has you collect cards in a deckbuilding roguelike, similar to games like Hand of Fate. However, this time you need to solve large-scale puzzles and deal with psychological horrors beyond your comprehension. You need to collect cards in your deck by any means necessary, even if it requires some self-mutilation of your own to achieve it. All of this is to simply survive this twisted journey as it unfolds around you. 

Inscryption is available for PC, Linux and Mac systems.

Developer Quote

From the creator of Pony Island and The Hex comes the latest mind melting, self-destructing love letter to video games. 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...

In Inscryption you will...
Acquire a deck of woodland creature cards by draft, surgery, and self mutilation
Unlock the secrets lurking behind the walls of Leshy's cabin
Embark on an unexpected and deeply disturbing odyssey
