Critic Reviews for Inscryption

At its best when it's strangest, Inscryption doesn't know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em.

A bold, stand-out, knockout of a card game that drips with imagination and menace.

Inscryption is as consistently fun as it is surprising, with a wonderfully creepy story cleverly tying its ever-evolving mechanics together.

A work of devilish cleverness that's both a mockery and celebration of collectible cards games and an increasingly disturbing horror story about the cost of victory.

The card combat is engaging, and the larger narrative elements make Inscryption incredibly hard to put down

Inscryption is an excellent deck-builder that fades after an astonishing start.

With that said, I did enjoy Inscryption. Part of me is tempted to dive back in to see if I can scrape any more secrets out of its cracks. Really, that’s where it excels: not the misdirection, but the hidden crawlspaces where it hides all the bodies. At its best, it feels like you’re actually uncovering a deeper plot. At its worst, it feels like you’re watching a magician pull handkerchiefs out of their sleeve. It’s cool, I guess, but you know they’re just screwing with you.

Behind the solid card game mask hides a special, original experience, to be lived in one breath until the last surprise.
