The news comes as part of a handful of indie game announcements from Sony. In addition to Inscryption, the company announced PlayStation versions of Cursed to Golf, Signalis, Cult of the Lamb, Schim, and the retro RPG Sea of Stars. A new version of Q-Games’ The Tomorrow Children, called the Phoenix Edition, will also be launching on both PS4 and PS5 on September 6th.
The announcement is one of many independent releases that Sony has announced recently. Sony announced today that the evil deck-building card game Inscryption, a roguelike sensation, will be released on both the PS4 and PS5. Although a release date for the port has not yet been announced, it will have PlayStation-only features like haptic feedback that “enhances every horrific deed.” When encryption was first made available on PC last year, it caused a stir. It has since been made available on Mac and Linux.
It’s an interesting day for the deck-building roguelike genre — which has seen a steady rise in popularity — as CD Projekt Red just launched a single-player iteration of its Gwent card game.
