Top Critic Average
There is a lot of potential here for a great idea and certain moments are truly awesome, but the whole experience just doesn't hold up and ends on a low point. If you have a stronger stomach for finicky controls, though, Inked might just be the game for you.
Inked is a puzzle platform with a unique artistic direction which suffers, however, from a very inaccurate control system.

A Visual and Storytelling Delight
Visually and audibly gorgeous, Inked battles to maintain its level of quality through an awkward camera, occasional obtuse puzzles and fumbled story
Bold, distinctive and flawed, Inked is nonetheless a worthy addition to your puzzle library.
Inked offers up a selection of well constructed logic puzzles set alongside a well made, though potentially familiar feeling plot.
Its clever premise, powerful narrative (flawed though it may seem at times), and enjoyable mechanics - Inked's flaws come across as mostly minor nitpicks.
Inked tries in earnest to make a small folk tale into a wider allegory about creative expression, and though admirable in theory, the self-reflexive bent ultimately hinders the sense of unease it creates through its pleasantly hand-drawn realm.
Overall, the different gameplay elements blend together to create something quite unique.
Inked is a lovely looking game with an interesting narrative idea. However, the story within the story is bland and generic. The game is much too long and if you are playing on a mouse and keyboard, you are in for a tough time. That being said, you might find it an interesting game about how to cope with trauma and the relationship between creation and the creator.
