Points de Vie is a mechanic for Chapter 2 in Bendy and the Ink Machine.

Gameplay Modifier

Whenever Henry gets damaged by an enemy, the Searcher, his health depletes, causing black ink to cover his vision. After enough time, the ink slowly disappears while restoring health.

If Henry's health is fully depleted, he immediately dies, resulting in a game over, and is sent back to the respawn point. However, if Henry fails to run away from "Bendy" while he's chasing Henry, he'll instantly die and get sent back to where Sammy is attempting to sacrifice Henry.
