Bendy and the Ink Machine

Bendy and the Ink Machine is a episodic video game released for PC, before being ported to Xbox One, Android, and iOS. Its creator is theMeatly, who originally released the first chapter as a demo. The popularity of the game encouraged him to expand on it, resulting in a 5 chapter series.

History

Origins

theMeatly, who is a living, breathing puppet,[1] conjured up the original demo alone. Quickly after release, he changed 'demo' to 'chapter one,' spawning a fan base eagerly awaiting updates. He then hired on a second staff member, Mike Mood, to fix the coding and help with modeling.[2]

Game Updates

During the two years in which chapters were released, Bendy and the Ink Machine took on a number of updates. These include visual updates, such as new models and animations, to improved optimization, as well as a new form of game play after chapter 5's release.

The most notable updates that took place were to the Bendy model itself. In the original demo, Bendy's model was nothing but a torso and head, described as being "bird poop" by its creators. He did not have to move past the jump scare at the beginning, so this wasn't a major issue. Then, he was updated to be a walking humanoid with a limp, and strands of ink stuck on parts of his body. The final model update took his guts away, making him an inky skeletal figure with a constant drip, and slight chromatic aberration around the mouth.

Canon Universe

Plot

Bendy and the Ink Machine takes place roughly in the 1960s, 30 years after the events at Joey Drew Studios. Henry Stein, a former animator, was asked to return via letter by his ex-boss Joey Drew. Once he arrives, he quickly realizes that major changes took place after he'd quit. The building is falling apart, and Joey Drew had a giant "ink machine" installed. This machine has the ability to bring cartoons to life, but as Henry comes to find, with a price.

The game is split into 5 chapters, with each chapter having Henry move through a specific part of the studio and usually meeting a new character. In chapter 2 he meets Sammy Lawrence, who was the old music director, and in chapter 3 he meets the evil Alice Angel. After chapter 2 Henry becomes friends with Boris the wolf, however Alice corrupts him and Henry ultimately has to kill him. Evil Alice dies directly after at the hands of the good Alice and her own Boris. From there the trio makes their way through the bowels of the studio and puts an end to Bendy. However, after Bendy seems to die in a flash of light, Henry is suddenly thrown into what looks like the "real world" and meets up with Joey Drew. The ending has caused much confusion and theorizing among fans.

Fandom

Bendy and the Ink Machine is popular with children and teenagers, like games such as Hello Neighbor or Five Nights at Freddy's. A majority of fan art is created by minors, while fan music is usually composed and sung by adults. Numerous fan characters have been created. Frequently, fan characters take on the appearance of cartoon Bendy himself, with or without a few adjustments. It's not unheard of to simply take Bendy's design and re-name him. Other fan character designs are wholly original, and may be human, animal, or supernatural.

There is a common theme among BATIM fans, in which they write Bendy as cocky and with a Boston accent. This contrasts Bendy's canonical personality, as in Bendy's shorts, he is seen to be rather timid and dense. In the game itself, the personality of Bendy's skeletal and beast forms are unknown. Though fans write Bendy as talking, he never actually speaks in any of the canon material. However, there is a high pitched singing voice at the beginning of all the Bendy shorts (except Cookie Cookin) that were re-uploaded by Joey Drew Studios on Youtube, staring December 24, 2018.[3] This voice was not heard in any of the previous uploads before Dec 2018.

Like many fandoms, BATIM had a special Tumblr tag for NSFW content before the Tumblr Purge. This tag was called "Bendy and the Kink Machine," abbreviated as BATKM. The creators do not necessarily condone NSFW content, as stated in their Fan Content Policy.[4] Under their policy, "In no circumstances are you permitted to... Create Fan Content that violates the rights of others, or is obscene, sexually explicit, defamatory, offensive, objectionable, or otherwise harmful to others." This stanza would imply that any NSFW content is in violation of their fan content policy. Despite this, no issues have risen between the creators and fans due to this policy.

Survey

A survey, Archived version was conducted in July 2018 by Youtuber colemancheu., Archived version The survey was promoted only within the Bendy and the Ink Machine Reddit. It's goal was to find out where it was fans first heard of the game, their age range, the type of let's players they watched, and if they've played the game themselves and enjoyed it. It procured 98 responses. One should note that the questions of this survey were not set to required, so not every participant replied to every question, which could lead to some slightly off results. The survey was taken before chapter 5 was released.

Of the 98 participants a large majority identified as minors: 3% 10 or under, 43% between 11-15, 33% between 16-20, with the rest over 20. The majority (78%) discovered BATIM from Youtube, after which 12% discovered it from friends. 15% discovered it from Markiplier, while other creators named included: DAGames, Drako, Jacksepeticeye, and The Living Tombstone. Note that both DAGames and The Living Tombstone are music Youtubers who have created Bendy fan songs. While these are the creators that introduced Bendy to the participants, 63% also watch Markiplier, 67% watch Game Theory, and 47% watch Jacksepeticeye. 76% have played the game and 92% believe it is a good game. Of those who played the game, retention drops roughly 20% between chapter 1 and 2, then drops about 10% with each chapter after that, save for chapter 5 which had not been released.

Fan Theories

A common theory that sprung up after the release of Chapter 5, is that Henry Stein is actually living in a time loop of sorts. During the whole of Bendy and the Ink Machine, Henry talks about nothing other than escape. But because it all fades to white after killing Bendy, we suddenly have a flashback, and then Henry walks through the studio door before credits roll, some believe Henry is stuck in a loop. After all, it didn't appear that Henry escaped after the death of the final boss. We simply saw the flashback, and he stepped through the studio door once more. And because Joey had storyboards in his apartment relating to some of the events in the game, it is cause for some to believe Henry is simply inside of that story; that none of what happened was real.

Previous theories that sprung up before the games finale included: Original Boris is evil, original Boris is Wally Franks or Thomas Connor, Bendy is Joey Drew, and that Henry is a cartoon character. (Editors may elaborate)

Shipping

Shipping among BATIM fans is widely variable. For example, some fans ship Henry Stein and Bendy, while others head canon their relationship as a father and son, since Henry was Bendy's character designer. Others believe Bendy is Joey Drew, in the same vein that the evil Alice Angel is Susie Campbell. In that context, shipping Henry Stein and Bendy becomes the same as shipping Henry and Joey. Because there is no certainty in who or what Bendy is, all the above relationships are equally plausible. However, the most common ship tag for BATIM on Archive of Our Own, as of February 2019, is Henry/Joey with 111 fanfics.

Some fans also cross ship Bendy with one of the brothers from Cuphead. This ship is sometimes debated, as the age of the Cuphead brothers is not totally known. Some believe that the Cuphead brothers are children, thus shipping Bendy with them is wrong. However, some also see Bendy as a child. In contrast, some believe the Cuphead brothers and Bendy are all adults.

Outside of shipping canon characters and cross shipping, it's common to ship Bendy with an OC. This includes Bendy/Reader fanfics. Bendy/Reader fanfics are the forth most popular ship tag for BATIM on Archive of Our Own. As of February 2019, there are 51 Bendy/Reader fanfics on AO3, and 40 fanfics tagged as Bendy/OC.

Bendy and the Ink Machine[b] is an episodic first-personsurvival horrorvideo game developed and published by Kindly Beast[a] under the name of the game's in-universe animation studio Joey Drew Studios Inc.[1][2] It was initially released to Game Jolt on February 10, 2017, as the first of five chapters, with a full release on October 27, 2018. The game was also released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on November 20, 2018, being published by Rooster Teeth Games, and for IOS and Android on December 21, 2018.

Bendy and the Ink Machine is a first person survival horror had and several cartoons in the late 1930s to 1940s the game where the player plays as Henry Stein, a retired animator who returns to his old workplace, Joey Drew Studios, and discovers that a machine has corrupted the entire studio and brought certain cartoon characters to life. The game mixes combat with puzzle mechanics.[4] Players explore through a first-person view and have limited physical actions such as running and jumping.[5] Different items can be collected, some of which are required to perform various tasks before proceeding.[6] Cans of bacon soup can also be collected for achievements and to restore Henry's health if he is injured.[7]

Combat is primarily focused around a variety of different melee-based weapons, such as an axe, pipe, plunger, or scythe.[8] Additionally there are long-range weapons such as a tommy gun or bacon soup cans. In-game enemies have different strength levels and resilience to damage, forcing players to be tactical about keeping out of reach and striking when necessary.[9] Failure to do so will result in a death.[8] Henry can retreat inside Little Miracle Stations whenever enemies are nearby in order to recover or remain out of sight. If he takes too much damage, he can escape from the ink that consumes him and respawn at one of the numerous statues of Bendy that act as checkpoints.[10][11] The player can save their progress by interacting with time card stations.[11]

In addition, players can find numerous audio logs throughout the studio that give more details about the game's story, particularly concerning the fate of the studio and its employees, similar to the systems used in games such as BioShock.[12][13] Some of these logs can be missed and require further exploration to uncover the secret areas they often reside In. At the final chapter, players unlock the Seeing Tool, which is a device used to view secret hidden messages that would be invisible without it. After completing it, players can also use it in the previous four chapters.[14]

Plot[edit]

Chapter 1: Moving Pictures[edit]

In August 1966, retired animator Henry Stein receives a letter from his former friend and employer, Joey Drew, asking him to return to their animation studio and see something important. He finds the studio abandoned, but discovers an "ink machine", installed sometime after Henry's departure 30 years earlier. He finds a tape recording by janitor Wally Franks that suggests Joey engaged in bizarre occult practices while making the machine, as well as a mutilated real-life analogue of Boris the Wolf, one of the studio's cartoon characters. Once Henry fixes and starts the machine, he is attacked by a creature known as "Ink Bendy", or "The Ink Demon" whose appearance is vastly different than the original version of studio mascot Bendy. Bendy appears as a cheerful, mischievous, short, and rather chubby cartoon devil. The Ink Demon is tall, and skinny, almost skeletal. His limbs are out of proportion with one another, and melted ink drips over his visage. The only similarities between Bendy and the Ink Demon are their enormous grins and pointed heads. As the studio begins to fill with ink, Henry flees toward the exit, only for the floor to collapse and drop him into the studio's lower levels. Draining the ink from this area, he finds a chamber whose floor is marked with strange diagrams. He hallucinates seeing the ink machine, a wheelchair, and then the Ink Demon before blacking out. The meaning of these hallucinations is largely ambiguous.

Chapter 2: The Old Song[edit]

Henry wakes up and begins to search for a way out, eventually reaching the music department. Henry finds a stairwell leading to the exit, but the entrance is flooded with ink. After pulling a power switch at the top of the flooded stairwell, he is attacked by ink creatures known as the Searchers; once they are defeated, a large metal door which previously blocked the next area opens. Henry traverses the area and reaches the office of Sammy Lawrence, the studio's musical director. He notices an Ink Pump inside the office, which should drain the stairwell. After completing several tasks spanning several locations to drain the ink, Henry hurries toward the exit but is attacked by Sammy Lawrence. Sammy's entire body has been transformed into Ink. He wears faded, damaged coveralls similar to Boris the Wolf's and over his absent face hangs a threadbare mask of the titular character Bendy, with a hole over the mouth to breath from. Sammy intends to sacrifice Henry to Ink Bendy in order to flee the studio, but before he can do so, he is dragged away by Ink Bendy and killed. Henry frees himself and flees through the studio, pursued by Ink Bendy. Barricading himself behind a door, he waits until Ink Bendy has left and then meets a living, intact Boris, called Buddy Boris.

Chapter 3: Rise And Fall[edit]

Henry befriends Buddy Boris, and the two leave the latter's safehouse to continue searching for an exit. In the toy department, they find another ink creature called Twisted Alice who is a distorted version of actress Susie Campbell and the character Alice Angel. Twisted Alice leads them to her lair and reveals that she has been harvesting the ink of other characters in order to make herself beautiful. Alice also reveals some interesting tidbits of information during this meeting, such as the fact that Ink creatures who are killed in the studio often don't stay down for long, being reborn out of the Ink Machine again and again in a process known as "The Cycle." Henry must perform several tasks for Twisted Alice in order for her to let him and Buddy Boris go free, learning from tape recordings that Susie became distressed when Joey suddenly replaced her with another actress, Allison Pendle. Angry and bitter over her dismissal, Susie allowed the ink to transform her into Twisted Alice. As Henry carries out Twisted Alice's tasks, he must hide from both Ink Bendy and the Projectionist, an entity of projector operator Norman Polk. The Projectionist is a lanky ink figure, though not as lanky as the Ink Demon, with a speaker protruding from his chest, and wires from out of his back which lead to his head, a projector. Henry must also avoid and defeat the reanimated versions of the cartoon's minor antagonists, the Butcher Gang. Henry completes the tasks and boards a lift to escape with Buddy Boris, but Twisted Alice double-crosses them and forces it to crash to the bottom of its shaft. Henry wakes up to Buddy Boris desperately shaking him awake, as Twisted Alice approaches from behind him, humming. Henry can only watch as Twisted Alice seizes Buddy Boris, pulling him into the darkness.

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders[edit]

Climbing out of the crashed lift, Henry ventures deeper into the cavernous studio in search of Buddy Boris and finds a lounge filled with the Lost Ones, ink creatures who show no hostility. He also discovers that Joey had been planning to open a Bendy-themed amusement park called Bendy Land with the help of famed ride designer Bertrum Piedmont. In order to reach Buddy Boris, Henry must restore power to the haunted house attraction by finding and flipping a series of switches hidden throughout a warehouse filled with rides, games, and props from the planned park. He must overcome a series of challenges in the process, one of which requires him to destroy a ride containing Bertrum's still-living, ink-corrupted head. Another forces him to evade the Projectionist in an encounter that culminates in a fight between the Projectionist and the Ink Demon. The two trade blows until The Demon, tiring of the exchange, grabs the Projectionist and rips his projector off. Entering the haunted house, Henry discovers that Twisted Alice has turned Boris into a deformed, hulking beast called Brute Boris and ordered him to kill Henry. The two fight, with Henry ultimately killing Brute Boris and freeing Buddy Boris' spirit. Twisted Alice tries to kill Henry herself, but is suddenly impaled through the back with a sword by Allison Angel, a physically intact and sane duplicate of Alice who is accompanied by a wolf character named Tom. Allison and Tom are the ink versions of Allison Pendle and Thomas Connor, the studio's resident mechanic, respectively.

Chapter 5: The Last Reel[edit]

Allison and Boris the Wolf keep Henry captured, but he eventually gains Allison's trust. She eventually gives him a "seeing tool" that allows him to see hidden messages on the walls. After Tom inadvertently reveals the location of their hideout to Bendy, he and Allison abandon Henry and flee. Henry escapes on his own and crosses a river of ink on a paddleboat while avoiding a giant Bendy hand, reaching a shantytown built by the Lost Ones. There, Henry is attacked by Sammy, shown to still be alive and blinded by rage, thinking Henry is Ink Bendy. Unmasked by Henry, Sammy tries to kill him but is instead killed by Tom. After Tom gains Henry's trust, Boris and Allison aid him in fighting off the Searchers and Lost Ones, who had been kept at bay by Sammy, and Henry falls into the administrative offices. After repairing a set of pipes and killing the recurring Butcher Gang, he finds Tom and Allison. Henry learns that Ink Bendy has stolen something important from the film vault and enters his lair — a much vaster version of the Ink Machine — to retrieve it. Allison and Boris remain behind, fearing that the ink will absorb and corrupt them. Inside, Henry finds one last tape recording by Joey, expressing his regret for everything that has happened and asking Henry to destroy Bendy. Henry finds the stolen item, a film reel marked "The End." The reel contains the end of all cartoons, and Ink Bendy chases him throughout the machine while transforming into a giant monster, Beast Bendy. Henry eventually plays the reel, projecting a "The End" title card on every available screen and causing Beast Bendy to dissipate when he sees it.

The game suddenly changes to a flashback in the inside of Joey's home, with a bulletin board covered with letters from Allison Pendle, now married to Thomas Connor, and Wally Franks, as well as sketches such as Bendy Land. Entering the kitchen, Henry finds Joey waiting to talk to him about the paths they took in their lives. After Joey tells Henry to visit the studio, Henry opens a door in the house and finds the warehouse directly behind it, repeating his opening lines from Chapter 1. It is presumed that Henry and all of the studio's employees may be trapped in a time loop of unknown origin.

In a post-credits scene, the camera focuses on a framed portrait of Bendy, Boris and Alice, which was a gift from Henry to congratulate Joey for his success (alongside a rusty ink machine sitting in one corner of the room). Just then, a little girl's voice asks "Uncle Joey" to tell her another story, suggesting that the entire game may have been a story or metaphor for the fall of Joey Drew Studios.

The ending is left ambiguous, and the true nature of the studio is never directly confirmed.

The idea for Bendy and the Ink Machine came from theMeatly pondering the idea of a world that resembled a cartoon sketch. As he started developing the idea, he realized that it felt "creepy" and needed a monster that inhabited it. Bendy was created to be that monster, but did not have a name. When the character finally received a 3D model, the name was chosen from a typo while saving it in a 3D modeling program, Blender. theMeatly was not a programmer and thus Mike Mood joined the production as he saw potential in the game.[15]Bendy and the Ink Machine was inspired by the BioShock series.[16]

The first chapter, Moving Pictures, took five days to be finished.[17] The game was then released for free on Game Jolt on February 10, 2017, being one of the first games that were released on the platform.[18] Originally, the project was "for fun", according to Mood, but it later became viral and incentivated then to develop a second chapter, The Old Song, which was officially announced in March 2017 and took six months to be finished.[15][17] It was released on April 18, 2017,[19] and also added a remastered version of the previous chapter, an updated menu, subtitles, achievements, etc.[20] The game was approved by Steam Greenlight on February 28, 2017,[21][22] and was then released on Steam on April 27, 2017.[23]Chapter 1 was made available for free, while Chapter 2 was released as a DLC for $6 dollars.[20]

The third chapter, Rise and Fall, was announced on production in May 2017. It was developed by six people in at least four months,[17][24] and the reason for its long development, according to Mike Mood, was because he needed to create a framework "to make the process smoother".[24] Its trailer was released in August 2017, which showed an animated short intitled "Tombstone Picnic" and showed Henry running from Ink Bendy in a room.[25] However, Mike Mood stated it was used only for the trailer's chase sequence and for test purposes.[26][c] It was released on September 28, 2017,[27] while the previous two chapters also received remastered versions.[17]

The fourth chapter, Colossal Wonders, was firstly confirmed in production on November 17, 2017.[28] It also included remastered versions of the first three chapters, which included enhanced soundtracks and textures.[29][30][31] It was released on April 30, 2018. Originally scheduled for April 28, 2018, it was delayed due to technical problems on Steam that disallows to make releases during weekends.[32] The fifth and final chapter, The Last Reel, was firstly confirmed in production on June 4, 2018.[33] Later, they confirmed that it would be released in October. The emprise also confirmed that the chapter would be received for free for only players who have bought the previous chapters.[34] A special edition titled Bendy and the Ink Machine: Jacksepticeye Edition, was given to YouTuber Jacksepticeye before the fifth chapter released to the public, which included all five chapters.[35] It was released on October 26, 2018.[36] The game received a final bundle on the next day, intitled Bendy and the Ink Machine: Complete Edition. Chapters 2-4, which were previously available as downloadable content, became free, while the game became paid.

On January 29, 2018, theMeatly officially announced that Bendy and the Ink Machine would be released to consoles.[37] The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports were developed and published by Rooster Teeth Games, originally intended to be released on October 26, 2018, while the Nintendo Switch port was scheduled to release on November 20, 2018, but both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One's release dates were pushed to the same date for Nintendo Switch's release.[38] On December 15, 2018, a mobile port was announced by theMeatly and Joey Drew Studios Inc., and it was released on December 21, 2018.[39]

Reception[edit]

Reception

According to the aggregating review website Metacritic, Bendy and the Ink Machine received "mixed or average reviews" on its console ports.[40][41][42] The website Rock, Paper, Shotgun considered the first chapter one of the best free games from the week.[45]

The game's stoyline and setting were mostly praised. Most reviewers noted that the game's art style resembles the "Steamboat Willie" era of Disney's cartoons,[46] with PlayStation LifeStyle considering Bendy as an "obvious parallel" between other cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse or Betty Boop.[47] Liam Martin of Express considered that the game's theme to be that "classic cartoons are more sinister than we remember".[48] Sean Warhurst of ImpulseGamer also considered the game's visuals as the game's "biggest strength" and that its graphics engine "complements the artistic direction".[46] This was also considered by Barry Stevens of Entertainment Focus, considering that "the game has a really unique art style and really pulls off the old animation studio feel with everything being drawn in a 30s style".[49]

Most websites considered the game's gameplay mechanics repetitive. TheXboxHub considered the game's combat mechanics "frustrating", as most of its enemies die in only one hit.[4]VGCultureHQ considered that if would have some range weapons in the second chapter, such as a gun or a slingshot, "would help make lengthy combat sequences feel more fair and less of a risk". However, it also stated that the boss battles in the game feel "intense".[8] The puzzles, according to The Digital Fix, were considered repetitive, saying that "It's something we've done a million times before".[50]

VGCultureHQ considered the game's chapter lengths "too short" and without a "fair balance", considering that it could be completed in four hours, considering that the first and final chapters could be "finished in just under a half-hour", while the other three chapters "may take longer".[8] According to Hely on Horror, the first chapter serves as a "tutorial", as guides the player to "interact with the environment and solve simple puzzles", the second chapter is where combat is introduced, but it considered that the third chapter is where players are thrown into the action.[13] Steven Asarch of Player.One considered the third chapter's task list as a "lazy attempt for developers to pad the game without adding any additional content", and that if future chapters could focus more on the characters development, "they could've truly be masterpieces".[51]

The game has been frequently compared with BioShock, due to, according to PlayStation LifeStyle, the game having an "antique style".[52]Nintendo Life also considered the motives of having a BioShock vibe in the game due to "the revelations that are made of Henry's past to the retro aesthetic that clings to every corner of the game's dilapidated setting". However, it also compared it to Resident Evil, and Outlast, considering it a "fusion".[44] The game was also compared with Cuphead and Epic Mickey, for their homages to "rubber hose" animation and the style of 20th-century cartoons.[9][44][50]

Sales[edit]

By 2017, the game achieved 750 thousands of downloads on Steam, according to Player.One.[53]

Awards[edit]

The game has received the "Best Horror Game" award by IGN and is listed as #1 in "18 Best Horror Games of 2017".[54] The mobile port received the "Game of the Day" award on February 23, 2019.[55] TouchArcade nominated the mobile port as the "Game of the Week" on December 21, 2018.[56]

This caused the game to have a giant fanbase, which Mood described as different from the most fanbases, calling other games' fanbases sometimes "toxic."[61] The game also attracted children audience, which attention was mostly gaven to the character Bendy, although the game is T-rated.[53][62] According to Mike Mood, what the made the game so popular was because of its characters.[53]

It also surged merchandise from the game, such as toys, shirts, etc., which can be bought on the game's official store.[63][64] Books and comic books were also released.[65][66]

Joke Games[edit]

On October 23, 2018, Joey Drew Studios posted on Twitter an image announcing a joke game, intitled Black Ink Possession, parodying Red Dead Redemption 2.[73][d] During April Fools in 2020, the emprise poster a trailer of another joke game, Bendy Royale.

Crossovers[edit]

A Halloween crossover mod, Hello Bendy, was released for the game on October 27, 2017, for a limited time, featuring the Hello Neighbor antagonist, who takes the role as Bendy in all previous three chapters and Sammy Lawrence for Chapter 2.[75][76] The mod's menu features the advertisement of pre-ordering the game Hello Neighbor. The mod expired by the end of October that year.

Co-creator Mike Mood has talked about wanting to do a crossover with Cuphead, which also was popular at around the same time and also uses rubber hose animation.[77]

The trailer also suggested the game would come out in the latter half of 2020.[82][83] However, on November 30, 2020, the developers announced that the game would be releasing in 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The developers also cited that the game will be ten times bigger than the original game and that they didn't want to rush the game.[84][85]

Television adaptation[edit]

In 2020, Derek Kolstad, creator of the John Wick franchise, stated that he has interest in making a television adaptation based on the game.[86][87]
