This is a very basic story viewer for reading ink script files.

Ink is the scripting language developed by inkle studios and used in games such as 80 Days and Sorcery. See for the code and full documentation of the ink scripting language.

StoryBytes is built using the blade-ink java implementation of Ink (see It should be capable of reading and playing any ink.json files generated by the inklecate runtime. StoryBytes is open-source software and distributed under the terms of the MIT License. The source code for the android version can be found on Github (

StoryBytes includes two short Ink scripts as demos (these will be copied to the local file storage on your phone):

- Cloak of Darkness: A very tiny and basic little sample script for ink. It is essentially the interactive fiction equivalent of Hello World. The full script for this file is available in the Github repository.

- The Intercept: Inkle's small demo game for the Ink scripting language. The full source code for this is (including a more advanced player done in Unity) is available at

StoryBytes is a spin-off from the source-code in Pirates and Traders 2, and is not a full product. It is released as-is, for people who would like to demo/play simple ink scripts on their Android phones. No guarantees that it will ever amount to much more than it is right now, as this is a project being done in the spare time of my spare time, but if you'd like to contribute or develop it further, you are very welcome to send in pull requests.
