What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There Will Be Ink (TWBI) is a work in progress, so getting lots of player feedback is an important part of the development process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is not expected that TWBI will be in Early Access for very long, but work will continue after the full release for as long as there is player interest and new ideas coming.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The finished version of TWBI will include a greater variety of terrain features, more unlockable unit abilities, battlefield powerups, and more music and sound effects. We're also aiming to include a campaign editor so that players can string together their own campaigns out of the missions they've created. Additional features may be added based on player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial Early Access release is planned to be the first "beta" version of the game, meaning the majority of the game's major features have been implemented. Please see the "About This Game" section for current features. As the game is in development, player's may encounter bugs.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game may see a small price increase once it leaves Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Please get in touch at any time by checking out the Steam community forums or by emailing hi@summitfevergames.com. All player feedback is greatly appreciated!”

About This Game

"Way more nuanced than it looks." - local multiplayer games (Steam curator)

There Will Be Ink is a tactical action game for 1-4 players. Play solo or with friends in battles between stick figure armies on a paper notepad, just like you used to draw in class instead of paying attention!

TWBI is a difficult game, where charging forward into the fray will rarely win a battle. Tactical thinking is essential. Assessing the battlefield, taking cover as needed, keeping an eye on troop positions: all of these are essential for winning the day. Or, if that sounds like a chore, switch to "arcade mode" and run & gun at will!

Features:

  • Fast-paced action gameplay with strategic elements
  • Take control of any friendly unit on the battlefield
  • Unlock new recruit types as you play, including assault infantry, snipers, medics, RPG troops, heavy machine gunners, and engineers
  • Full featured map editor – lay out a battlefield and jump straight into the action
  • Join a battle in progress for 4 player local co-op or vs. gameplay
  • Navigate dynamic battlefields, wading across rivers, taking cover behind trees, rocks, and sandbags, and craters left behind in the chaos
  • T-Rex with jetpacks!
  • Compensate for weather effects like rain, wind, and smoke rising from burning buildings and trees
  • Earn training credits, even when a battle is lost, to assign new abilities to your troops

There Will Be Ink is a work in progress, so please send all constructive feedback and bug reports to hi@summitfevergames.com. Thanks!
