Inscryption just got a surprise free "mini-expansion" available now in beta. Entitled Kaycee's Mod, it's effectively an endless version of the roguelike deckbuilder that's at the heart of Inscryption's first act.
Kaycee's Mod effectively turns the cabin Inscryption takes place in into an endless, increasingly challenging roguelike, effectively extending "Part 1" of Inscryption infinitely. Players can work their way through Challenge Levels, unlocking new cards and challenges as they go, as well as "dev logs" from Inscryption character Kaycee Hobbes that shed more light on Inscryption's story.
The expansion is currently in beta and freely available to anyone who opts in via Steam, with instructions on how to do so in the announcement blog post. Players are warned to keep a back-up of their save files just in case, and the beta is expected to undergo some changes over time. Specifically, developer Daniel Mullins shared plans to add two more rare cards, two new items, a final encounter for players who clear Challenge Level 12, and more dev logs.
Inscryption only just came out back in October, and we found it a "surprising and delightful meta-twist on the digital card games that have exploded in recent years." It was one of our nominees for best video game story of 2021, and is one of our nominees for as-yet-unannounced Game of the Year 2021.
