As of writing this, the most satisfactory answer I've come to is that Inscryption is a simple tabletop RPG that ties its progression to deck-builder mechanics. It's story is where the King of Games isn't a spiky-haired pharaoh in need of a decent meal inhabiting the body of a whiny little child, but rather a kind and kind of creepy being seemingly trapped in a cabin simply wishes to pass the time with a guest.
