“We are incredibly excited to be releasing Realm of Ink onto Steam Early Access and taking the next step on our development journey,” commented Dai, CEO of Leap Studio. “While we aim for a flawless official launch, as a newly established independent game studio, we acknowledge that our experience and resources are still growing. We recognize that only by relying on genuine feedback and suggestions from players can we continuously refine our product and deliver the best gaming experience possible.”

Unfortunately, console players will not have access to Realm of Ink’s Early Access when it comes live on Friday, May 17, 2024. However, luckily, they won’t need to wait for long as fans of the Realm of Ink can expect the V1.0 PC launch and console release to follow after the Early Access period in 2024.
