WhistleWind's Lobotomy Corp Mod

Face the Fear. Make the Future.

Inspired by KingSlime's own mod of this topic, this is my own take on translating Lobotomy Corp's abnormalities into Inscryption. The cards in this mod are designed to be as faithful to their original counterparts as possible within the framework of Inscryption's gameplay, while still being "balanced".

This mod currently adds all abnormalities from Lobotomy Corp. Broken down, this means:

  • 84 obtainable cards
  • 41 obtainable abilities
  • 6 starter decks for Kaycee's Mod
  • 3 challenges and 1 cheat
  • 1 custom node
  • Plus a few combat events!

⚙️ Dependencies

  • BepInEx-BepInExPack_Inscryption v5.4.1901
  • API_dev-API v2.4.1


The mod's configuration file has been renamed to wstl.inscryption.lobotomycorp.cfg.

Any changes made in the old config file will NOT carry over and must be changed in the new config file after loading the game at least once.

The old config can be safely deleted at your convenience.

🩹 Known Bugs and Issues

Curses Mod Challenge Incompatibility

The Boss Revenge challenge from Infiniscryption's Curses mod will override the Abnormal Boss challenge if both are activate at once.

The Abnormal Boss challenge will still work for Royal since Boss Revenge does not affect him.

PackManager dependency error

If you don't have Infiniscryption's Pack Management API installed you will get an error in the console when this mod is loaded.

YOU CAN IGNORE IT. With 1.2.0 I've added custom pack art for anyone using the Pack API, but it is NOT required for this mod to work properly.

If you encounter any other issues or bugs, please report them to me asap by contacting me on the modding Discord or by opening an issue on the GitHub.

Feel free to contact me with any other feedback you have too!

In the spirit of the original game, I won't detail the abilities, only which cards possess one and what triggers it.

Custom Card Choice Node

This special node can be found randomly as a card choice after battles and draws exclusively from this mod's pool of cards (including Rares!).

Cards are chosen based on an internal 'Risk Level' system that splits all cards into five categories, based on their general power level.

The chances of cards with a certain 'Risk level' appearing as a choice change as you progress in a run according to the table below.

Map # Zayin Teth He Waw Rare
1 40% 30% 20% 10% 0%
2 30% 30% 20% 20% 4%*
3 25% 25% 25% 25% 8%*

*This percentage is halved in Kaycee's Mod.

🕓 Closing Notes

Another update! This one took longer than I expected. I didn't realise how complicated the bosses could be, but it was a fun experience! It was good practice for the future...

Anyhow, this will likely be the last update for a while as I return to college. The next update I have planned is also pretty large in scope, so that'll lengthen things.

Hope to see you then, and thanks for playing my mod! <3

Quick list of planned updates:

  • Further balancing, tweaking, bug fixes, and general refinement of what's currently added (feedback is welcomed and encouraged!).
  • Expansion pack of Library of Ruina abnormalities
