In Inscryption, players assume the role of a card game YouTuber who begins playing a mysterious card game on an equally mysterious floppy disc. Using a variety of attack cards, players must tip over their opponent's scale of damage in order to win. The rules of the game vary as the story progresses, giving players access to more cards and rulesets. Players can collect new cards to change their decks and expand their options. The game even has elements of escape room–style puzzles.

The single-player game has overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam, but can you play the game anywhere else?

Currently, no. Despite Devolver's friendliness with releasing their games on the Switch, Inscryption is currently not included among their offerings. There also doesn't seem to be any sign that the card game will release on the platform any time soon.

What about the PS5 or the Xbox — is 'Inscryption' available on those platforms?

If you were thinking about checking out Inscryption on other platforms, you're still out of luck. Inscryption is not currently available on the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X. As of now, Inscryption is a PC-exclusive title, and time will tell if it will ever appear on other platforms and consoles.

You can purchase Inscryption on Steam for $18.11, but it's currently on sale for $15.99.
