The Bendy series might not be known as a series to most. Some may think that Bendy and the Ink Machine is the only game that was released in 2017. It has three different games, and one in development some might not have noticed due to the fact that the other two were mobile games.
However, one of them was officially a prequel to Bendy and the Ink Machine. The game they develop won’t have Bendy in the game but will be set in the same universe. However, the studio behind the series has promised Bendy will return in the future.
Why do you need to invest time into the series?
The core game alone is worth investing all the time possible into. The way they bring in classic cartoons that resemble old school Mickey Mouse. They make this scary thing that is something original and just exciting.
Then there is the fact these two spin-off games made for mobile are enjoyable. It’s not the best idea to make a prequel a mobile game, but for $3, it makes it worth buying. The story may not be that complex throughout at the moment, but it feels like it’s evolving with each story element added.
The future’s looking bright for Bendy
Then there’s the future of the Bendy series. It’s currently on the verge of expanding its universe; it might be unlikely that we see something on the same level as Bendy. But the originality feels like it’s embedded in the future of the series.
The series could really end up anywhere. It could be pushed to its limits in the future. Its character can be expanded massively, maybe even taken more inspiration from other cartoons. Even possible abilities make some really interesting and exciting scary beings that only live within nightmares.
