There Will Be Ink

There Will Be Ink

There Will Be Ink is a tactical action game for 1-8 players. Play solo or with friends in battles between stick figure armies drawn on a paper notepad, just like you used to draw in class instead of paying attention!

TWBI is a difficult game, where charging forward into the fray will rarely win a battle. Tactical thinking is essential. Assessing the battlefield, taking cover as needed, keeping an eye on troop positions: all of these are essential for winning the day. Or, if that sounds like a chore, switch to “arcade mode” and run & gun at will!


  • Fast-paced action gameplay with a focus on cover
  • Take control of any friendly unit on the battlefield
  • Play through 18 campaign missions, with another full campaign in the works
  • Quick Battle feature with random map generator to jump into the action while keeping things fresh
  • Unlock new recruit types as you play, including rifle infantry, assault infantry, snipers, medics, RPG troops, heavy machine gunners, engineers, laser jetpack troops, and flamethrowers, why not!
  • Full featured map editor – lay out a battlefield and jump straight into the action
  • Campaign Editor – string missions together into a campaign to play with your friends
  • Join a battle in progress for 8 player local co-op or vs. gameplay
  • Online multiplayer using Steam’s Remote Play Together
  • Navigate dynamic battlefields, wading across rivers, taking cover behind trees, rocks, sandbags, and craters left behind in the chaos
  • T-Rex with jetpacks!
  • Compensate for weather effects like rain, wind, and smoke rising from burning buildings and trees
  • Earn training credits, even when a battle is lost, to assign new abilities to your troops
