Mar 8, 2021Gentle and never particularly taxing, the game’s straightforward puzzles complement its charming art style and quietly melancholic story, in this unusual and attractively drawn game.
Mar 1, 2021Though its puzzles can be quick to complete, Inked is an amazing story of love and loss that questions what people are willing to do for the ones they care about.
Mar 1, 2021Inked would be a more enjoyable game if it had a better sense of what it wanted to be.
Mar 3, 2021Inked is a unique puzzle game that’s at its best when you pause and marvel at the beautiful hand-drawn world around you. It’s not meant to be played through in a single sitting, as puzzles, while varied, do tend to get tiring after a long gaming streak. It’s best enjoyed a chapter or two at a time, though that’s not to say it’s not engaging, because reveling in the stirring musical score alone is already well worth your time.

Mar 1, 2021Inked is at its worst when things get fiddly, when you’re left poking at the screen to move things about without the benefit of a movable camera. Trial and error is never a good look for a puzzle game and a couple of times you’re going to find yourself sinking to that level in Inked. Get past those parts though and you’ll discover a warm, wonderfully well put together puzzle game that delivers hours of entertainment. It’s not perfect, but there’s enough goodness here that you’re going to forget the bad parts pretty quickly.
