Chapter One: Moving Pictures
Bendy and the Ink Machine Chapter 1 Walkthrough
The chapter starts with Henry entering the studio.
Tip: there are hides along the way with cans of Bacon Soup, consuming one can of Bacon Soup will completely restore Henry’s health.
First objective: Discover Joey’s Secret
The tip guides us to search in the workshop.
Search the workshop until you locate the Ink Machine Loading Dock.
To lift the Ink Machine Henry needs to find two power cells: one on a shelf and a second in a Box.
Put the power cells in the power device box and push the handle to lift the Ink Machine up.
Turn On the Ink Machine
The tip is to locate the power station.
On the way out, go back to the gate that was closed before.
Walk until you eventually find a room which is the ink machine main power also called the “break room”.
Fix the Ink Machine
In order to activate the Ink Machine, Henry needs to find six objects as in the picture:
These objects are scattered throughout specified locations on the map.
Here are the locations of the missing objects:
When you have all the items, place each on its specific pedestal location in the main power room.
Restore Ink Pressure
Tip: locate the pressure valve.
To find the pressure valve, go to the theater and restore the ink pressure.
Once you do that, the ink will start flowing inside the room.
Turn on the Ink Machine
Go back to the main power room and pull the switch.
The machine is now running.
Head back to the Ink Machine room, it’s blocked now with planks.
Near the blocked entrance, Henry hears a shout and will encounter Ink Bendy for the first time.
Escape the Workshop
After encountering Ink Bendy at the Ink Machine, the whole place will start filling with Ink from all around.
Henry should run towards the exit and then will fall through the floor, landing in a secret room.
Drain the Ink
Tip: find and return the valves.
The room Henry lands into is flooded with ink, and has to be drained by turning a pipe valve.
One the way out, there will be two more valves that can easily be spotted.
Turning these valves will drain the ink from the flooded areas.
Clear a New Path
Tip: An Axe may come in handy
Go down from the basement and you’ll see an axe laying on a table.
Pick it up and use it to break the wooden planks blocking the path to another room.
There will be more boards blocking the way, break them as well and you should find the Ritual Room.
Suddenly Henry will experience a few quick flashbacks of the Ink Machine, a wheelchair, and Ink Bendy before fainting on
The ritual symbol painted on the floor.
The first chapter is now complete.
