Inkulinati, the ink-based strategy game inspired by medieval manuscripts, is coming to Xbox Game Pass on January 31st as an early access title. In this game, players take turns in Inkulinati duels that are filled with unexpected tactical depth and humor. Players can embark on a single-player campaign to uncover the mysteries of Inkulinati, face off against formidable opponents, and build their own bestiary. You can try the demo now.
One of the key features of Inkulinati is the use of the “Living Ink,” which players can use to draw their army and lead it into battle against their opponent’s Tiny-Inkulinati. Players can use a variety of tactics and techniques to outmaneuver their opponents and emerge victorious. In addition to controlling their army, players can also perform special actions, such as using their fists to smash enemy units or drawing obstacles to create barriers.
Bardcore artist and YouTuber Hildegard von Blingin’ has teamed up with the developers of Inkulinati, Yaza Games.
Inkulinati features a variety of different beasts that players can unlock and use in battle, each with their own unique abilities and strengths. Players can create their own Tiny-Inkulinati character and choose from a variety of different playstyles, such as a brave knight or a nun who can use prayer to heal her units and confuse her enemies.
One of the standout features of the game is the procedurally generated text that describes the dramatic events of each battle in detail. Players can also engage in local multiplayer battles in a hot-seat mode reminiscent of the “Golden Era” of gaming.
