Nostalgic Horror Game Ib Will Get Remake | Ib has some exciting news for lovers of horror role-playing games with compelling tales. Recent reports indicate that the game will be re-released at some point in the near future. Ib itself is a video game that was published in 2012 and is a free-to-play game that acquired popularity due to the fact that it was played by a large number of YouTubers.
Ib, the freeware RPG Maker-developed 2D horror-adventure game, has published its ‘definitive’ edition after more than a year after its first release, with no intentions for further development. It was published last year to generally positive reviews, and it has since developed a cult following that has resulted in an almost insane number of fan art and animations being produced.
Although the game’s designer (who goes by the name Kouri) has requested that no games based on the universe or characters he created be made, he has said that he has plans for the planet of Ib in the near future. After a year, the final version has been issued in version 1.05, which is the final version (fixing up some issues and fancying up the title from 1.04, which was released a couple of weeks ago).
It is the story of a little girl who travels with her parents to an art gallery where they see the works of a dead and fairly unknown artist called Guerena, which they find fascinating. While exploring the exhibit, she is drawn into a strange world contained within a painting that contains living versions of Guertena’s work that have been twisted into devious puzzles and traps that Ib and the other survivors must navigate if they are ever to escape the world contained within the painting.
The new release of 1.05 (and 1.04) includes two new endings, a new dialogue and story, numerous bug fixes, and a new extra ‘dungeon’ that can be accessed during a second playthrough. The game was previously released as version 1.05 (and 1.04).
While Kouri used the term “remake,” it seems that this effort is more in the vein of a remaster for the time being. It seems that the game will be similar to the original, but with updated visuals. As may be seen in the comparison chart above.
On October 3, the solo-developer Kouri announced a remake of the game Ib. The initial edition of the game was released in 2012 as a free download; however, this time around, it will be a premium download with a release date of 2022. On Twitter, Kouri has also shared a screenshot from the film’s upcoming remake.
Ib is a horror adventure game that follows the adventures of a little girl called Ib. Ib and her parents decide to pay a visit to a museum that is hosting a Guerena Exhibit in honor of an artist with the same name. Ib takes a stroll around the gallery, taking in the many works of art, but soon realizes that she is completely alone. Not only are her parents gone, but so is everyone else in the gallery.
The strangeness begins to creep in as she wanders the museum for other individuals. A guy called Garry, who has an unusual manner of speaking, and Mary, an attractive blonde with a cheerful demeanor, are among the characters she encounters along the route. The action of the novel takes place in this bizarre museum.
In certain cases, there isn’t a clear difference between remaster and remake in Japanese, and the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Personally, I believe it is quite probable that additional plot aspects will be included in the Ib remake.
What exactly is IB, and why should you care about it?
It is a psychological horror video game that was published on the PC platform in 2012. RPG Maker was used to creating the game by Kouri. As such, it is one of several cult Japanese horror RPG Maker games created in a similar style to this. If you’re not acquainted with these games, consider Yume Nikki or Corpse Party as examples.
Because it was available for free, the original Ib has a large English fandom outside of Japan, and many people are looking forward to its remake. The remake version itself is expected to be a paid-for title, and it will be published in 2022, marking the tenth anniversary of the game’s production at that time.
