It revolves around Henry, an animator visiting the old workshop, only to be met with something he did not expect to be there, and a corruption he unwillingly set free.

A remastered update for Chapter 1 was released on April 18th.

With the release of Chapter 3 on September 28th Chapter 1 was updated.


This first chapter sets the tone for the adventure ahead.
Solve the riddle. Escape the workshop.

Above all, fear the machine and survive.


There is no real strategy here. Chapter 1 is mostly a puzzle chapter, so this section will be dedicated to helping the player solve the puzzles.

"Find the Ink Machine"

From the beginning of the chapter, explore the workshop until locating the Ink Machine.

"Turn On the Machine"

Turn left, and head to the break room.

"Fix the Ink Machine"

This is the first and only puzzle in the chapter. Before activating the Ink Machine, the player needs to find 6 objects:

These objects are randomly placed throughout specified locations in the map.

"Restore Ink Pressure"

Once the player has all objects, go to the projector room, and restore the ink pressure. Head back to the Power Room and pull the switch. Then, head back to the Ink Machine. Which was blocked because of planks, after getting closer to it, Henry will encounter "Bendy" for the first time via a jumpscare.

"Run to Exit"

After encountering "Bendy" at the Ink Machine, run toward the exit. Henry will then fall down a trapdoor to a secret room.

"Drain the Flood"

The room Henry lands in is flooded with ink and has to be drained by turning a pipe valve. As Henry goes further down, there will be two more flooded areas that have to be drained to move on.

"Clear an Old Path"

In this room after walking down from the basement, grab the axe hung on the wall to chop through some wooden planks blocking another room.

Once Henry has reached this room, break three more boards that blocked the door and then approach the pentagram room. Finally, Henry will have flashbacks of the Ink Machine, a wheelchair, and "Bendy" before fainting to complete the chapter.
