Today I’m going to be talking about a recently updated game called,” Bendy and the Ink Machine” that’s been receiving a lot of hype recently. It was made by TheMeatly Games;it’s a puzzle-horror game and available on Steam. It has a total different look than other horror games that we’re used to seeing. At first, you don’t think it’s that scary considering cartoon character posters are all over the walls and nothing as come to kill you yet.
Later, things start to go from, “okay, this isn’t scaring at all” to “holy shit! What was that?!”. Especially, when ‘Bendy’ the main monster in this case starts popping up out of nowhere just to scare the piss out of you. The story goes that we come to this old studio building that we used to work at because Joey called him one day and said he had something to show him. I don’t know about you guys but if someone I used to know suddenly calls me out the blue like that years later and doesn’t tell me what the his surprise is and tells me to come to my old workplace in a creepy fashion…..automatic red flag.
Maybe, I would go there just to satisfy my curiosity, but once I saw that he wasn’t there I would be gone so fast. Unfortunately, for us players we have to be a dumbass and go look for him and we end up seeing some disturbing stuff along the way.
I really like the feel of the game and cartoon style design of the game itself, it was really different. Now, this game is released in chapters and I think there are five in all and so far only two of them have been released. If your one of those gamers that likes to wait for the whole game to come out before playing that is totally fine. I’m not one of those gamers though. The moment a game I’ve had my eye on comes out, I’m running out to the nearest GameStop or buying it on Steam if it’s on there.
The more chapters that come out the more mysterious and dark the story gets. It goes from evil mad scientist theory to worshiping a Bendy demon and satanic rituals. You don’t know what the hell is going on at this point you just want to leave.
I don’t know if you guys do this too but after I’m done playing a game, I like going on Youtube and see if other players had the same reaction I did to certain things or found something I didn’t or just watch them freak out. Recently, I discovered this new channel called, “Gamers React Comp”, on Youtube where you can watch all these different players react to same scene in a game and at the end theirs a poll or who freaked out the most and who was the calmest out the bunch. Its pretty funny.
Moving on, this is a really easy game to play and if cartoon characters are your worst fear then look no further. The only bad thing about this game is its slow updates on the game itself. This has only 5 chapters total and there are already rumors that there could be a second game already in the woodwork, so if you enjoyed this game a lot and want to see more in the future then go right ahead and support them on Patreon. Hope you all enjoy this creepy, weird game as much as I did.
