A downloadable game

Project Inkbrush (working title) is a 2D platformer in the art style of a traditional East Asian painting. This demo was developed as part of a Computer Science & Software Engineering college capstone requirement, as well as an Applied Design college capstone requirement.


A controller is strongly recommended to play, however, keyboard controls are also available. The controls for an Xbox controller are displayed within the demo using tutorial signs, and all controls are also listed below. For players using keyboard controls or non-Xbox controllers, please use the list below for reference.

NOTE: PlayStation 5 controllers are not currently functioning with Unity's input system. PlayStation controllers also may not function correctly.
