Inked is an action-adventure video game developed by Somnium Games and published by Starbreeze Studios on April 26, 2018. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.


Inked is a fast-paced action game that takes place in a world of tattoos. The player takes control of the character, Scratch, as he fights his way through the city to take on the Ink Demon and save the world from destruction.

The game is played from a third-person perspective and uses a variety of weapons and abilities to defeat enemies. The player can use melee weapons, guns, and magic to defeat enemies. The player can also use the environment to their advantage, such as using walls to climb or using objects to swing across gaps.

The game uses a checkpoint system, which saves the player's progress at specific points in the game. If the player dies, they will respawn at the last checkpoint they reached. The enemies are well designed and varied, providing a good challenge without ever feeling overwhelming.


The graphics in Inked are cel-shaded and look very similar to the graphics in games. The environments are varied and well-designed, and the character models are attractive and faithful to the game's style. The game's art style is heavily based on tattoos and body art, and it's executed very well. The game's lighting is also impressive and really helps to bring the world to life.


The controls are simple and easy to learn, but they still offer a good level of challenge. Inked is responsive and easy to control, and the game's camera is generally well-handled. The only issue I had was with the game's lock-on system, which can be a little finicky at times.


Inked is a fairly short game, but it's reasonably replayable. There are a few different difficulty levels to choose from, and the game's combat is enjoyable enough that I found me going back to try and get a higher score. The game's puzzles are also reasonably enjoyable and provide a good challenge.


Inked is a good-looking, enjoyable action-adventure game. The controls are simple and easy to learn, but still provide a good level of challenge. The platforming and combat are both enjoyable and well-executed, and the puzzles provide a good challenge. The game is a bit on the short side, but it's still reasonably replayable.
