Global video game publisher Maximum Games today announced their partnership with Rooster Teeth Games in the publishing of Bendy and the Ink Machine, the first-person puzzle horror game coming to console this fall. Following its astounding success on Steam, Maximum Games will bring the critically acclaimed title to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month, with a Nintendo Switch release following shortly thereafter.
In its 1930s heyday, Henry was the lead animator at Joey Drew Studios, a studio that was best known for producing animated cartoons of their most popular and beloved character, Bendy. Many years later, Henry receives a mysterious invitation from Joey Drew himself to return to the old cartoon workshop. Thus begins the player’s journey into the sketchy madness of this twisted cartoon nightmare.
Originally released episodically in four separate chapters, Bendy and the Ink Machine will arrive on console as a complete collection, and will include the brand-new fifth and final chapter, “The Last Reel.” Players will explore deep within a surreal comic environment full of unexpected horrors as they work to discover the mystery behind the fates of the studio employees.
“Those who haven’t played Bendy and the Ink Machine are going to discover an instantaneous love for the game that the Steam community has known for over a year,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games, “and we are beyond excited to play a part in that.”
“Partnering with Maximum Games to bring Bendy and the Ink Machine to the hands of all players, on all consoles, is the natural next step,” said David Eddings, head of games publishing, Rooster Teeth Games. “We’re thrilled to know that soon gamers all over the world will have the opportunity to experience this chilling adventure.”
Bendy and the Ink Machine launches on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this fall.
