Inscryption is a new card-based game from the creator of Pony Island

August 12, 2020 1 min read

Daniel Mullins Games is best known for creating Pony Island and The Hex, and if you’ve played either of those titles, you’ll know they’ve got a real knack for making some interesting experiences. Their newest game, Inscryption, just released a trailer today, and it looks like they’re finally going to stop playing coy with the satanic undertones for this latest outing.

According to the press release, Inscryption is "a narrative-focused, card-based odyssey that blends the deckbuilding roguelike, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror ... " Personally, I’ve never actually played any standalone card games outside of Solitaire before, so I’m not one-hundred percent sure what to make of this one from a technical perspective. However, I’m absolutely on board for it based solely on the fact that it’s a Daniel Mullins Games joint. Their work is all about experimental design and attempting to tell unique stories in interesting ways.
