In the remake version, improvements have been made upon the original concept of “making the game enjoyable even for players who are not good at games” to allow even more people to enjoy the game.
Moreover, almost all graphics for maps, characters and stills are improved along with the addition of all-new and re-designed pieces of artwork. Also brand new puzzles, effects, and tricks that were not present in the original have been added in the remake.
A young girl named Ib visits an art gallery with her parents.
While perusing the various works of art, Ib suddenly realizes that she is alone.
As she searches for someone – anyone – else, the museum begins to change…
This horror exploration adventure game lets you play as Ib, who is left alone, forcing her to investigate, discover items and disarm traps to find her way out of the strange gallery.
With seven different endings to unlock based on your actions and choices, every move you make is significant.
New Conversation Feature
You can now enjoy conversations with accompanying characters while trying to escape from
the gallery. They may even give you hints if you get stuck.
A zoom mode is now available which makes it easier to spot small items and view pieces of artwork in greater detail. You can also choose to remain in zoom mode until the end of the game (Some scenes cannot be zoomed or will be forced to zoom).
