We've been treated to a great surprise to start the week, as the multi-time Game of the Year winner Inscryption has finally made its way to Xbox, having released for PC back in 2021 and various other consoles in 2022.
For those who haven't heard of it, Inscryption is described as "blending the deckbuilding roguelike, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror into a blood-laced smoothie". As you can see from the trailer, it looks pretty crazy!
We won't say too much more, as the top Steam review even mentions that "the less you know, the better", but rest assured this game has received fantastic reviews alongside its numerous awards over the past few years, currently sitting on an "Overwhelmingly Positive" rating on Steam based on over 81,000 ratings.
Here's a sample of what our sister site Nintendo Life had to say in their (8/10) review:
"It’s hard to talk about the specifics of Inscryption without diluting some of its magic. However, its ingenuity is mind-boggling, its mood is devilishly haunting and its presentation is first-rate. As a deck builder, it’s stretched about as far as it can go, and by jumping around between concepts it sometimes asks for a lot from the player. The pay-off, however, is one of the most impressive feats of video game storytelling there is."
You'll find more details about Inscryption below, along with some screenshots.

"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..."
