Charm Overload: Ibb & Obb Hits PC On May 26th

This screenshot is the enemy of physics.

While the indie game habits of pushing forward genres and innovating new styles of play are all well and good, what’s truly important and defining is how gosh-darn adorable they can be. ibb & obb is a prime example, its co-op focused platforming previously confined purely to the Sony Playbox as part of their “the indies all belong to us now” initiative.

Fun fact: ibb and obb shouldn’t be capitalised, as per The Well of Lost Plots from which their names are taken. They are capitalised in my headline though, but so is everything else. Such is the way of the Style Guide (must also be capitalised) that guides my hand. Now that I think about it, that wasn’t very ‘fun’ at all, so here’s a new trailer for ibb and obb instead, which shows the gravity-bending cooperative platformer in action.
