Indie darling Inscryption is a winner, taking home multiple Game of the Year awards in 2021 and being nominated at a variety of ceremonies in even more categories. Having sold over a million copies, it’s now ready for even more success. The formerly exclusive PC game is coming to PlayStation.
Developer Daniel Mullins broke the news on PlayStation Blog as part of a series of indie game announcements. “I’m thrilled to finally bring the game to PlayStation players,” he said. This is indeed the first of his games to appear on consoles: previous projects Pony Island and The Hex remain exclusive to PC on Steam. Mullins did not specify which PlayStation consoles Inscryption would be headed to, nor did he give a specific release date for the new port. However, both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions are likely. Inscryption is ripe for virtual reality via a headset like PSVR 2, although no such feature has been announced.
However, Mullins is adding new features to the game on PlayStation, all centered around the DualSense controller. Inscryption’s ermine card contains voice lines of the little weasel, which are played through the controller’s built-in speaker. Additionally, the light bar reflects the color scheme of your in-game location. “Playing in the dark takes you one step closer to feeling like you’re in Leshy’s dressing room,” Mullins teases. Finally, the game uses haptic feedback so you can feel in your own hands the “grisly action” unfolding in the deck in front of you.
Otherwise, Inscryption for PlayStation will be the same puzzle deck builder as the original PC game. A free mini-expansion turned the game into an endless roguelike for fans looking for that kind of experience, and the same feature will be present on PlayStation. Those who want that kind of experience now can take a look at Gwent: Rogue Mage, which The Witcher dev CD Projekt Red just released.
