Bendy and the Ink Machine is an episodic puzzle/action/horror game developed by Meatly Games for Windows, OS X, and Linux. The game's first chapter features animation reminiscent of early black-and-white cartoons, as players, set in an old animation show, work to activate a large ink machine via puzzle solving.


On January 30th, 2017, animator, webcomic artist,[1] and game developer theMeatly uploaded the first trailer for Bendy and the Ink Machine to YouTube (shown below).

The first chapter was approved for release on Steam after it gained popularity on Steam's crowdsourcing platform, Steam Greenlight. It was released on February 10th, 2017.[2]


The game was immediately met with support from fans and gained wide exposure over the following two months after it was played on popular Let's Play channels such as Markiplier, whose playthrough of the first chapter gained over 3 million views (below, left), and jacksepticeye, whose playthrough of the first chapter gained over 1.9 million views (below, right).
