"Turn on the Ink Machine"

Head back to the Power Room and pull the switch. Then, head back to the Ink Machine. The room will be blocked off due to planks. After getting closer to it, Henry will encounter Ink Bendy for the first time via a jumpscare, making Henry fall backward.

"Escape the Workshop"

After encountering Ink Bendy at the Ink Machine, run towards the exit. Henry will then fall through the floor, landing in a secret room.

"Drain the Ink"

The room Henry lands in is flooded with ink, and has to be drained by turning a pipe valve. As Henry goes further down, there will be two more flooded areas that will have to be drained to progress to the next area.

"Clear a New Path"

After walking down from the basement, grab the axe hung on the wall to chop through some wooden planks blocking the path to another room.

Once Henry has reached this room, break three more boards that blocked the door and then approach the Ritual Room. Finally, Henry will have quick flashbacks of the Ink Machine, a wheelchair, and Ink Bendy before fainting to complete the chapter.
