These aren’t your grandparents’ cartoons, kiddos.
Developer TheMeatly Games gained notoriety last year with the release of Bendy and the Ink Machine, an episodic first-person horror game that tells the sad tale of an abandoned animation studio crawling with ink-form demons. While the game’s story has yet to see completion, theMeatly announced on YouTube yesterday that Bendy and crew will soon be coming to home consoles later this year, thanks to a partnership with Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC.
With Rooster Teeth assisting in porting the game, Bendy and the Ink Machine is expected to launch later this year on Xbox One and PlayStation 4—so you can play the nightmare horror title from the comfort of your own living room—or you can also play it on-the-go through the Nintendo Switch. No further details have been revealed as to whether BATIM will be released episodically on other platforms or as a complete game with all released content included and finalized.
The first installment of Bendy and the Ink Machine, “Chapter One: Moving Pictures,” was released in February 2017, soon followed by “Chapter Two: The Old Song” in April and “Chapter Three: Rise and Fall” in September. The final game is planned to include five chapters, with the fourth coming soon.
Bendy has since become a runaway hit and garnered a massive online following since its first release last year. The game’s mascot will star in his own free-to-play mobile game for iOS and Android—Bendy in Nightmare Run—which is expected to launch before the release of the fourth chapter.
If you’re curious about Bendy and the Ink Machine, you can play the game’s first chapter for free on Steam regardless of your OS.
