About ibb & obb


ibb & obb is a cooperative adventure designed for two players set in an abstract puzzle filled world where gravity goes both up and down. You can only succeed by working closely together. The game can be played with a good friend on a couch or can be played with someone online. 

ibb & obb started out as Richard Boeser's graduation project. It had its first public appearance as part of IndieCade's selection at the E3 2008 in Los Angeles. There it caught Sony's eye and plans were made to get ibb and obb to PlayStation. Sparpweed decided to try and self publish the game on the PlayStation Store. At the end of 2010 production officially started in close collaboration with Codeglue. The PlayStation3  version launched in August 2013.
