We've seen a number of Indie games strive to distinguish themselves with unique visual approaches - with so much competition, a creative style can go a long way. Perhaps Inked: A Tale of Love is another to add to the list of eye-catching releases - it's heading to Switch later this year thanks to developer Somnium Games and publisher Pixmain.
It's a title that has previously been well received on Steam, and has also had a version on mobile simple called Inked. It takes place in a paper world comprised of ballpoint pen artwork, and the story sees your Nameless Hero cross paths with the Artist as you seek a loved one.
Inked: A Tale of Love is an epic tale of love and hope. This heart-warming and enchanting story is set to an original soundtrack that perfectly scores this touching romance. Everything falls apart when a sudden change to their world shifts the story, taking the Nameless Hero on a quest in a vast landscape filled with puzzles to find his lost love. Each puzzle takes him closer to her, unraveling a journey that entwines the Artist and the Nameless Hero. Together they embark on an adventure that will forever change them both.
The game has 10 worlds to clear, and one feature of the puzzle solving will see you "use your magical paintbrush to draw geometrical shapes".
It looks intriguing; the publisher states a release date will be confirmed soon. Are you interested in this one?
I checked the Steam link and the game can not be purchased there... it appears that the devs removed it and plan to re-release it, with improvements... This probably coincides with the Switch release?
It seems like there is more to this story which would make for an interesting article.
Here is an excerpt from a post made by the developer:
"In the last dev story, we covered the initial development and release of Inked. Today we will take a look at how the feedback and reviews after the game’s release prompted the team to deeply analyze the game, and come up with ways to improve it. This postmortem of the game was supposed to be a guideline on how to do better at any future projects, but eventually became the foundation for the new and improved Inked which you are patiently waiting for today."
Always thrilled to see a game about a romantic couple. Haven was absolutely wonderful. Played it through with my husband and we really enjoyed it.
Wish there were more games like this. Not dating sims, but games about established couples working together in some capacity. There are just so few (that I know of). Doubly so if you are looking for a positive take on love and relationships.
