Posted by on

Hello there, Billy! There Will Be Ink is coming out of Steam Early Access on Friday, March 10th (2023, in case that needs specifying)! Here is a new release trailer for the game:

There is now a demo version of the game, allowing you to play the first 8 mission of the main campaign, which can be found exclusively here at indiedb.

It's been a long time getting here, but these are exciting times in TWBI land!

There Will Be Ink - Dino Smash!

Along with the new trailer is a new game update. I've added support for a "Borderless Window" display mode, which may help some who have experienced audio or graphical issues playing with multiple displays. I've added a requested option to show unit class names on the battlefield, to make it easier to find what you're after. Engineers can now chop trees with the new "Lumberjackery" skill, and there have been several fixes as well. Full change log below!

Changelog (Beta 9.3.1)


  • Borderless Window display mode
    • Renamed "Full Screen" option to "Display Mode": Fullscreen, Borderless Window, Window
  • Game option: "Unit Names on Battlefield" - shows unit class name, disabled by default
  • Engineer Ability: Lumberjackery - allows the Engineer to fall trees with wrench
  • Added stat for trees chopped, counts towards Engineer progress


  • Fixed crash relating to mines and pathfinding
  • Fixed crashes relating to T-Rex
  • Fixed crash on "Lake Frendz" level when hovering over unit in Tactical Mode
