State of Play, who are most well-known for their visually stunning adventure games Lume [Free] and Lumino City [$4.99] which were created with intricate real-world models and painstaking stop-motion animation, have just announced their next mobile project called Ink. According to Polygon, Ink is a hybrid of pinball and painting where you'll bat a ball around a board pinball-style leaving trails and splashes of color in your wake.

As State of Play co-founder Katherine Bidwell describes it, "Pinball is a great game at its core. With Ink we wanted to extract that essence, create a game for everyone and make it a beautiful experience. As you play INK the ball smashes along the walls, blocks of color burst like beautiful fireworks across the surface, building up in vivid layers and recording a visual history of your gameplay as you perfect your score."

There are no further details or release date for Ink just yet, but it sounds really awesome so we'll be sure to keep our eye on this one.

    Would be cool if the more you painted over the same area, the more your score multiplier increased.
