INK is a starter stage in Indie Pogo. It comes from the eponymous game INK, made by ZackBellGames.
INK is a fast-paced platformer about using colorful paint to uncover the player's surroundings. Every level is composed of a goal to reach. However, the terrain is invisible, so the player needs to discover the terrain by physically bumping into it, by performing a double jump or by, well, dying.
The stage INK functions similarly, except dying doesn't ink the terrain.
|A simple layout with varied high and low terrain with a platform on the right side.|
|A symmetrical layout with three platforms and an indented center area. Based on a design by Discord user Windchilled.|
|A layout with a floating platform on the left-hand side, and a platform overlooking a pit on the right-hand side. Designed by Discord user Pepperado.|
|A symmetrical layout with an upper and lower area, with the lower section consisting of a small center with one platform, and the upper section having two walls on the left and right sides reaching all the way up to the blast zone. Designed by Discord user DD, based on the layout of level 14 of INK.|
|A layout similar to Battlefield from the Super Smash Bros. series. It contains one stage in the middle, and three platforms floating above it, with the middle platform being higher than the other two. Variant 5 can also be seen in Infinite Pogo.|
At the start of the match, the terrain is invisible. When air jumping or using parkour, ink will apply on the ground.
- As of Patch 18.104.22.168, the stage was made to be visible from the start when Stage hazards are off.
- Before Patch 22.214.171.124, INK needed to be purchased from the shop for 325 Coins. Since this patch, it has became available from the start, just like it's fighter for Arcade Mode: Lilac.
- Contrary to popular belief, this stage has a set layout and isn't randomized.
