Glorious STIMULATION

Inscryption is a wonderful thing, marrying fun gameplay mechanics with an interesting story. At face value it is a rogue like deck building game, but I promise you it is so much more. Value for money wise this is an incredible game - I’ve already sunk 40+ hours into this game in the less than two weeks that I’ve owned it. And I’m showing no sign of slowing down. The developer is adding an endless expansion (for free) that is currently in beta. This offers almost infinite replay-ability, but also includes even more lore, shedding light on the main game’s intriguing story. I would highly recommend this game to everyone. There’s a reason it’s featuring so highly on 2021 game of the year lists.

A cryptic game with a lot of hidden layers. The puzzle/escape aspect is a bit lacking but it’s a decent deckbuilder.

This is an amazing game that continues to catch me by surprise with its plot, but never bores me with its gameplay. I cant wait to try others by the same dev.

I've never been into deck building games, but the art style of this one piqued my interest. Very glad I ended up giving it a try as it turned out to be a fantastic game from the art style to the gameplay and audio. It also didn't hurt to get a fantastic deal on the game.

I think this is an enjoyable game that utilizes both the creepiness and fun factor to form an unforgettable experience. The card game itself is fun and the characters are unique and strange. The escape room part is also a fun and interesting experience.
