Indie Racer Chalo Chalo Looks Goodo Goodo

By Graham Smith on April 8th, 2014.

Richard Boeser is this close to finally releasing his dual-world cooperative platformer Ibb and Obb on PC, as it’s due to arrive this May. He’s apparently not content, as he’s also partnered with Tomasz Kaye to make Chalo Chalo, a racing game “where planning ahead is more important than speedy reflexes.” You play a dot gliding across a world of randomly generated shapes, where different colours of surface slow or speed your journey to the finish line.

Ibb And Obb Give Quinns A Headache

By Quintin Smith on July 4th, 2011.

Steve and Peter In Anti-World, that's what I would have called it

The best indie games are the ones that immediately make you feel slightly unwell, clearly. Braid. Narbacular Drop. Space Funeral. Here’s a new one with more in common with the gravity flipper VVVVVV than anything else – ibb and obb is an entirely co-operative platformer where players can leap through gaps in the floor to walk on the topsy-turvy version of the world. It’s more than a little mind-bending watch two players solve the game’s puzzles in tandem, as you’ll see in the video after the jump. The full game’s due out in early 2012.

Check this out, though. After receiving a 7+ age rating in Europe and 12+ in Japan, the American ESRB have given the preview build of ibb and obb a 17+ “Mature” rating, stating, among other things, that the “main characters sexual preference is perceived as ambiguous and not suitable for all audiences”.

EDIT: Oh OK it’s an April Fools joke. Wow it’s even funnier being caught out by that stuff when it’s not April 1st.
