What is Bendy and the Ink Machine?
A Steam indie phenomenon, Bendy and the Ink Machine is a highly successful game in the first person survival horror genre with a little bit of adventure and exploration elements thrown in for good measure. You play Henry, the former employee of Joey Drew Studios, who has returned to his workplace after 30 years on the request of the owner, and Henry’s friend, Joey Drew.
From here on, this where things get a little more dark and murky; as instead of finding yourself stepping into a standard animation studio office, you’re soon plunged into a world in which the creations of Joey Drew’s studio have sprung to life thanks to the invention of the horrific Ink Machine. As Henry, it’s your job to discover the extent of Drew’s appalling crimes against nature, all the while roaming deeper into the inky depths of the studio.
