Inked - patch #3 is live! Level design changes and new achievements ✒

Hey everyone 👋,

For this update, we concentrated on balancing certain aspects of the game based on the feedback we got from you. 📢

We have changed the level architecture in several places in the game to balance out new puzzles of those areas with the repetitive ones (e.g. using ramps for traversing). Coupled with improved controls from the older patch this should lead to a less frustrating experience when playing the game, as there will be a bit less tricky platforming and less repeated actions.

An example of the architecture changes in the desert.

We are also adding three new achievements called Inking Veteran, Astronaut and Samurai tactics. We will let you guys figure out how to get them 😉

For the next update, we have plans for an improved saving system and other balancing changes, but we would like to hear you. What would you like to see improved in Inked in the following weeks? 🔧🔨📐

Here is the full list of changes 📝:

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed an issue where water from the fountain was going through objects. (Water towers)
  • Fixed an issue where the ferry platform did not get reset to a start position after NH dies. (Swamp)
  • Fixed an issue with the graphics of the plug hole. (Swamp)
  • Fixed an issue where the puzzle could be skipped by blocking the fire with 3 cubes. (Frostland)
  • Fixed an issue where the black fire is drawn in the center of the screen, causing multiple issues and bugs. (Final fight)

  • Various architecture improvements in Sea of Simple Geometry, Forest, Desert, and Frostland.
  • Improved the detection system of the security cameras.
  • Various other small improvements and bug fixes.

Sincerely yours,
Somnium Games

The second patch for Inked is live now and here are some of the biggest changes / additions. 📝

But before we get into details, we would like to thank all of you who played Inked. We got some really heartwarming feedback which keeps us going. We also recieved constructive feedback that we are actively working on. Thank you all! 💖

One of the biggest announcements is that Inked now has a demo.

If you are interested in the game, you can now enjoy its first hour and then decide if you want to purchase the whole experience. 🎮 You can travel through the Sea of Simple Geometry, Pillar Forest and the Water Towers, and start uncovering the beauty of Inked. We wanted the Demo to be more than enough, so you can experience a lot of the mechanics, enjoy a couple of environments, some beautiful music and get a very good glimpse at the story and more.


We have added the Steam Cards! You can now get:
  • 7 Steam Cards - collect these awesome selfies of the Nameless Hero, Aiko and Buddy taken across all of Paperworld
  • Badges - Based on the growing of the Cherry blossom
  • 6 Backgrounds - to spice up your Steam profile pages
  • 8 Emojis - to give your messages some Inked flavour

Along with these additions we made another round of tweaks to the game, which should make the experience more enjoyable. 🔧🎮

Here is the full changelog for this patch:

Global improvements:
  • Implemented Russian and Polish localizations.
  • Implemented hints and tips on the loading screen.
