If you’ve played The Unfinished Swan, you know that it provided a pretty unique mechanic wherein you could view the world around you by splashing paint on it. While The Unfinished Swan paved the way for ink-based mechanics, other games are now utilizing the concept in their own ways.
INK is a pixelated 2D platformer; however, it’s not just a rehash of zillions of other games in the genre. You see, when starting a level, much of it is totally invisible. How is it possible to make it through stages you can’t see? Simple – when your block hits a surface that surface is blasted with paint, it shifts it over to being visible. The concept sounds like quite the challenge even for skilled platforming players.
You can download the Windows-exclusive INK on itch.io for $3.99.
