INK Games is an innovative platform being built by an all-star team of entrepreneurs and video-game developers. Our goal is to blend the fun of gaming with the real world economy, and offer anyone the opportunity to get paid for playing and on-boarding their following.

To be part of INK Games, you must be referred by an existing player and use their INK ID to join the platform.

Try checking the INK Games hashtag on Instagram and Twitter, or other social media outlets!

There is no fee to join. Use your unique INK ID to invite others and you’ll be paid on transactions for anyone who uses your link to purchase anything within the INK Games platform. This includes zip codes, in-game upgrades, monthly subscription fees, asset drops, and more.

We’re a lot of things, but boring certainly isn’t one of them. Co-led by two brilliant minds from within their respective industries, INK Games is the brain-child of Robert Towles and Josh Gause. Robert Towles is a seasoned entrepreneur with multiple, multi-million dollar exits. He has spearheaded many types of projects, each time adding new facets to existing ideas that has kept his pursuits consistently successful. He is primarily fueled by enthusiasm and chocolate milk.

Josh Gause is a veteran game developer, with several Emmy nominations for his ground-breaking work in the social game space, and a list of hit games that led to multiple multi-million dollar exits. Now, he leads our studio of specialized developers and artists… When he’s not eating snacks and playing video games.

With Robert and Josh at the helm, our team is on the front lines of where technology meets the economy. Getting paid for your following and viral reach is the future of gaming, social media and a new economy… and we’re sharing it with the world.

INK Games is a platform and Payment Engine behind a virtual world that will house a library of games and social features.

We are still in the early stages of our platform, but when it’s up and running the people who got there early will be at a distinct advantage. Imagine being one of the first people who got on Instagram or Twitter. Your following would have a head-start because of it. Now, imagine if you got paid for each one of those.

Realistically, you could sign up whenever you want, but there are significant advantages to doing so now.

Absolutely. The official release date for the App has not been set yet, but every day we get a little bit closer to our goals. Check us out on social media to catch up on all the latest news and development.

INK Zip Codes are ONLY available if you have an INK Games account. To set up an account, you’ll need an existing player’s Referral Code.

Not yet! In the future, Zip Code owners will be able to buy, sell, or trade their virtual assets to other users.

INK Zip Codes are a unique virtual asset that will be directly connected to the economy of every game on our platform. It’s your chance to be a part of our build, and own a piece of the future in the gaming industry.

Use one of the buttons on your INK Games Profile to easily share your INK ID to social media, or copy the link and send it directly.

Influence Points accrue and pay out on the 1st and 15th of every month. At the end of each payout cycle, points are converted to real cash and payment is transferred to the user. Any Points that are still pending by the end of each cycle will be applied to the next payout instead.

Zip Codes are unique virtual assets that mirror a map of the real world. They are the base layer of our platform, and will be connected to all future releases and their correlating economies.


There are 6 tiers of INK Zip Codes, categorized by rarity (and color). Five of these are available for purchase now – Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary – with Unique-tier Zip Codes offered through exclusive opportunities and promotions.


Stay tuned for more information on Unique offers! When you own a Zip Code, you’ll receive Influence Points for purchases made within their territory across the entire platform. You’ll also immediately earn Status Points – boosting your bragging rights to show off to your friends. The total population is also displayed for each Zip Code – this represents the number of potential users within a Zip Code.

The principal point system for INK Games! Players earn Influence Points any time a user connected to their INK ID makes a purchase. Every month, Influence Points are converted into real dollars and paid out directly to the Player.


On your dashboard, you’ll see your current monthly Influence Points – open the Point Converter to check out how this will pay out to real cash. On the 1st and 15th of each month, we’ll pay out your Influence Points to real-world money. On the Point Converter, you’ll also be able to see incoming Points – each transaction takes 7 days to process, and after that, you’ll see those points added to your monthly total.

Status points are the collective score of a player’s overall presence and progress. Every time you engage with the platform, you’ll earn Status Points. These are your personal bragging rights – so get out there and show off your status!

Anytime an INK ID is used, it creates a new Connection. Using someone’s INK ID connects you to them, and when others use yours it connects them to you. Imagine what your connection map could eventually look like!

Card Packs are your best way to buy Zip Codes. They guarantee you’ll receive a total value of cards equal to the price – or more. This means you can spend $5000 – and roll the dice at earning $5000+ in value.

Each pack contains Zip Code cards of varying rarities. Silver Packs have 3 cards, Gold Packs have 7 cards, and Diamond Packs have 15. See Zip Codes for more info.

Players receive up to 25%* commission on all purchase made by their referred connections that signed up using their INK ID. Commission is earned in the form of Influence Points, before converting to cash upon payout.


* Percentage subject to change.

Each purchase transaction requires 7 days for processing, during which the transaction will be displayed on your account as "Pending". After processing, the transaction will be displayed as "Cleared" until payout. After payout, it will be displayed as "Paid".

Payouts are calculated at the end of each payout cycle. You will receive your payout via email by the 1st and 15th of the following cycle. Your Influence Points are then reset to zero, indicating a new pay cycle has begun.

Players are able to receive payouts by transferring funds directly to their bank accounts! Payout emails will be sent each payday to the email address used during Sign Up. This email account can be changed by editing your Account Details on your Dashboard. Players can also access their Payouts from their Dashboard.

Upon receiving your first deposit, you will be guided through the set-up process of finalizing your payout account.

  1. You will receive a payout email from notifications@inkgamespay.com or you can click "VIEW FUNDS" on your Dashboard. This will redirect you to our third-party payment processor website at inkgamespay.com.
  2. Your token will automatically be applied. You will need to create a password (unique to your INK Games sign-in password) that you will use to accept funds in the future.
  3. Click "Confirm" to accept your virtual card. This page will also show you the amount of funds available for you to transfer on your virtual card.
  4. Click "Add Payment" at the top, left-hand side of the screen. 
  5. Follow the prompts to add your bank account information to receive your funds. Once completed, you will have access to all of your payout deposits, moving forward.
  6. To complete the transfer of funds to your bank account, you will need to enter a Transfer Amount between the Transfer Min and Transfer Max amount. The Transfer Max amount takes the total Available Card Balance and deducts the necessary Service Fee.

Is your deposit amount lower than your payout amount? Don't worry, you will receive all of your funds! There is a $10,000 limit on individual deposits. So, if you have earned more than $10,000 during a given pay period, you will receive additional deposits in $10,000 increments until the total is paid.


Note: There is also a $10,000 limit per day on transferring funds from your payout account to your bank account. Every 24 hours you will be able to transfer additional funds from your payout account to your bank account until the total has been transferred.
