A living painting.
Last updated : June 9th, 2018. Version 0.0.8 alpha is up! Available on both Windows and Mac!


Explore and restore life to to a Japanese folklore-inspired land, encounter mythical creatures such as Kirins, and leave your own artistic touch in the world, permanently, in Inkless.
We currently have a short playable prototype available here below (for Windows and Mac), with a full (hopefully polished) demo planned for release by the end of Spring 2018. This prototype experiments with the 2.5D world hybrid setup, the general reception to the art direction, world direction, and lays the groundwork for the real core mechanics to truly shine in future builds.
