Inscryption is a roguelike deck-building game developed by Daniel Mullins Games and published by Devolver Digital. The game is set in a cabin where the player tries to escape by beating a demonic force in a card game. The player, who is represented by a pixelated character, is guided by a set of cards and interacts with the game's dealer to play rounds of cards to find more cards that will help the player escape from the cabin. The player is encouraged to explore the cabin and solve puzzles to help them defeat the dealer and find cards. The game has a variety of settings, such as a cabin, an underground labyrinth, and a factory, each with its own boss and set of cards.
In the game, the player is able to play as a deck that represents the player-character. The player has to beat the demon in a card game by applying different strategies and obtaining cards with different effects. The game uses a pixel art style with a simple interface.
Inscryption received generally positive reviews. One reviewer describes the game as a "short but fun game". Another reviewer praised the game's card mechanics and puzzle-solving aspects.
