You are given the artist's pen and the ability to add shapes to help you through puzzles. As you progress through the game you are given more shape tools to choose from. For example, you can place objects like a square block or an angled ramp to help you climb walls or cross gaps. You use the weight and the physics of the drawn-in shapes to solve some puzzles.
Inked is the story of a Nameless Hero who has lost his love, Aiko, and the story is intertwined with the artist, Adam's, life. As you embark on a journey to find Aiko, you also learn what is going on in Adam’s life through the puzzles he is drawing.
It's a unique perspective through the eyes of an artist. Not only do you delve into the world created by real-life trauma, but you glimpse the life behind the drawing: Adam's room and desk are scattered with empty Chinese food boxes.
