 80 Days  dev debuts Inky, an editor for its Ink scripting language

80 Days dev debuts Inky, an editor for its Ink scripting language

June 20, 2016 | By Alex Wawro

The folks at Inkle Studios, that British indie best known for interactive fiction games like 80 Days  and Sorcery!, have released a new editor, Inky, to aid developers working with their Ink scripting language.

It's a notable effort to drive adoption of Ink, the language used to create the award-winning 80 Days and other Inkle games. Inkle released Ink as open-source software earlier this year, and now Inky is being offered under the same terms.

Inky works by integrating a code editor, a compiler and other tools into a single Mac app. Inkle's Joseph Humfrey notes that it's still alpha and "will have bugs, you have been warned," but developers who are nevertheless curious to try it out can do so via Inkle's Inky GitHub page

For more details on how Humfrey and the rest of Inkle built 80 Days using Ink and other tools, check out their postmortem of the project.
