Inkulinati is an ink-based strategy game straight from medieval manuscripts, where a rabbit’s bum can be deadlier than a dog's sword. The game might seem like a light-hearted and whimsical game on the surface, but underneath are strategically complex battles where finding the right strategy will lead you to victory. At its’ core, Inkulinati is a turn-based game inspired by real-life doodles on medieval manuscripts that we all have seen somewhere on the internet. Polish developer Yaza Games saw these marginalia pieces and decided to give us the power to bring them to life using a magical substance called the Living Ink.

There are more than 50 units with special abilities to discover, like bishop cats, sword-wielding rabbits, bard donkeys, or … whatever that thing on the right is …

But they are only as mighty as the hand that wields the quill! Use your units wisely in the numerous diverse challenges you encounter during your path to becoming a Master of the Living Ink. These challenges may require you to beat all opponents on the battlefield, push the enemies' leader off the manuscript page, or even survive apocalyptic events like traveling Hell's Maws. You will encounter these challenges during Journey Mode, a single-player-focused experience of exciting puzzle-like missions and grand battles with small, handcrafted story events sprinkled in between.

Once you have mastered the Living Ink and seek new challenges, you can head over to Duel Mode where you can duke it out with your friends in couch co-op battles (it also works really well with Steam Remote Play!). Duel Mode lets you create battle scenarios tailored to your needs. Train for specific scenarios or just let off steam after a long day, the choice is yours.

700 Years in the Making

The development of Inkulinati began 700 years ago when bored monks started scribbling silly creatures from tales and everyday life on the margins of manuscript pages, an old form of art that went almost extinct with the invention of industrial book printing (damn you, Gutenberg!) Luckily, Yaza Games picked up where medieval folks left and brought this ancient art to the modern world! Behold! Below, the inspiration for the Donkey Bard. Despite having no fingers, he inspires and delights.

Inkulinati launches for Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC on February 22, 2024.
