Bendy and the Ink Machine Fandom
Bendy and the Ink Machine is an episodic survival horror videogame developed and published by Canadian videogame developer and publisher Kindly Beast (formerly TheMeatly Games during early releases). The game focuses on Henry Stein, a retired cartoonist, who returns to his old studio upon an invitation from a former colleague and discovers a nightmare of cartoon monsters seemingly created by the titular Ink Machine. The game's first chapter was released for Linux, macOSand Microsoft Windows via Game Jolt on February 10, 2017, with a second chapter bundled with a remastered version of the first following on April 18, 2017. After the game succeeded in its Steam Greenlight campaign on February 28, 2017, both available chapters were released onto Steam on April 27, 2017. The third chapter was released on September 28, 2017 and the fourth chapter was released on April 30, 2018 after a short delay. Mike Mood, the game's programmer, describes the game as an "accidental success". However, it has a toxic fandom for many reasons.
Why They Should Be Hunted Down By The Ink Demon
- It's 2020 and they still overrate the game like it's the second coming of Christ, even the in-game universe mocks [religious] fanatics (especially Sammy Lawrence), well they don't see the irony.
- They share almost the same problems of the Five Nights at Freddy's Fandom. This is to the point that one could argue both fandoms are the same people.
- They make many fanart that is perverted, mostly of Alice Angel.
- They can't accept people's opinions. They also spam comments with poor grammar.
- Some of them start fights with the Cuphead Fandom. The BATIM fandom whines and complains about Cuphead being more popular than BATIM and they think Cuphead ripped off BATIM just for being based on old cartoons.
- Bendy fangirls. No questions about it.
- A specific MMD YouTuber named AnastasiaP BaTIM literally makes human porn of Bendy and Boris.
- They may sometimes be a part of the Mickey Mouse Fandom and the Golden Age Cartoon Fandom.
- Bad shippings, like Bendy x Boris or Bendy X Cuphead.
- There is some good and well made fanart.
- Sane fans who can handle criticism exist.
