Release date: Released

You can now get INK on the Steam Store!

INK is a fast-paced platformer about using paint to uncover your surroundings.

INK is a small project that I created post-Ludem Dare 32, after being unable to compete in the game jam. People responded positively to my prototype, so I continued to work on the project for roughly three weeks!

The game has a similar feel to hardcore platformers like Super Meat Boy. The object of each level is to defeat all of the enemies in the room and reach the goal. However, the terrain is invisible to the player. The player can discover terrain by physically bumping into it, or by performing a double jump. The double jump sprays paint bullets out of the player and increases the player's awareness of their surroundings. If the player happens to pump into spikes or falls to their death, paint will also shoot out from the player's last position. The room isn't wiped clean after death so that the player has an easier time navigating after multiple attempts!

I enjoyed the few weeks that I worked on INK, and I have received positive feedback from the community. If you would like to purchase the current build of INK, you can find it here:


The current release of INK includes 40 unique levels filled with enemies, traps, and hazards. If Greenlit, I'd love to flesh out the game even further. I have quite the list of mechanics that I was unable to fit into the initial release and would love to incorporate them into an expanded product.
