INK now with Leaderboards!

Hello everyone,

Here's what you can expect to see in the new INK 1.1 Patch:

Additions
  • Added leaderboards.
  • Added an option to restart the same level after reaching the door (useful for retrying levels for times).
  • Added a coin counter in level select to keep track of how many coins you are missing.
  • Can now go into Windowed Mode by pressing Alt+Enter and can resize the window.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a Level Select Crash Bug.
  • Fixed a bug where the player would die after falling too fast on an enemy.
  • Cursor now stops moving after selecting a level in level select.

Additional Info on Leaderboards
  • To activate leaderboards, press T (Keyboard) or Y (Controller) to toggle timers ON/OFF.
  • If starting on Level 1, the Overall Timer will be displayed.
  • If starting on Levels 1, 26, 51, the World timer will also show up.
  • If starting on any other level, only the timer for that level will show up.
  • Leaving to level select screen at any time will stop all timers.

Info on Patch for all platforms
Currently, we are having issues with our build machine. I have made this patch available for Windows platforms, but a new patch will be available soon for all platforms with all these additions plus more. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I hope you all enjoy the new patch and the leaderboards!

Reviews

“There’s something beautiful about the act of creation, about just painting the universe with color.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“It’s almost as if the developer took Super Meat Boy’s blood trail and made a game specifically about that, in a world not unlike The Unfinished Swan’s.”
Destructoid

“Because playing a hard platformer sometimes just isn’t challenging enough when you can see, is it?”

About This Game

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

INK 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 (if any) 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 bump 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! This expanded Steam version includes new mechanics, Boss encounters to provide a nice challenge and a change of pace.

Deluxe Edition

The Deluxe Edition includes a copy of INK plus the Soundtrack + Art DLC all in one place!

Key Features

  • 75 platforming levels to test your skills
  • Defeat challenging Bosses!
  • Jump on enemies to open the exit portal
  • Explore levels by painting them with your double jump or, well, dying. Death has never been so useful!
  • Experience the game’s tight and responsive controls that don’t make you feel cheated when you die
