A recent indie fan favorite is finally getting a physical release. Inscryption, the 2021 roguelike, deck-building game developed by Daniel Mullins Games and published by Devolver Digital will be getting new physical editions, courtesy of Special Reserve Games, with preorders beginning on December 1, 2022. Previously, the title could only be obtained digitally for Windows, Linux, macOS, as well as PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Here is everything you need to know about Inscryption’s physical release.
What is Inscryption?
According to the description on the Special Reserve Games website, “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…”
If somehow that summary doesn’t intrigue you, then perhaps the fact that the game has been nominated for a multitude of awards (including “Best Independent Game” and “Best Sim/Strategy Game” at The Game Awards in 2021) might entice you to give Inscryption a try.
