INKS

A beautiful game of paint and pinball by State of Play. INKS updates pinball for a new generation.

It combines the joy of pinball with skilful puzzles, and allows you to create wondrous works of art as the ball smashes around the canvas.

Blocks of colour burst like beautiful fireworks across the surface, building up in vivid layers and recording a visual history of your gameplay as you perfect your score.

State of Play used unusual tools to bring the game to life. Concept art was initially done by splatting Indian ink onto watercolour paper. Much of the level design used an iPad and Apple pencil, levels then making their way into Unity and being refined.

Here at the museum you’ll have the unique opportunity to play INKS on the custom made digital pinball table, that the developers used to showcase INKS at games festivals around the UK.
