About the Game


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...


Take control of Ib, a young girl who finds herself alone and trapped in a mysterious art gallery.

Gameplay revolves around exploring your surroundings, collecting items, and solving puzzles.

There are also multiple different endings to unlock based on your actions and choices in this mysterious gallery.

New Features in the Remake

The remake of Ib features additions and optimizations that make this a must-play for both existing fans who played the original free game and new players alike, all while maintaining the original concept of "making the game enjoyable even for players who are new to video games".

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.

Conversation System

You can now enjoy conversations with the accompanying characters while trying to escape from the gallery. They may even give you hints if you get stuck.

Zoom Mode

A zoom mode is now available which makes it easier to spot small items and view pieces of artwork in greater detail. It is also possible to stay in zoom mode until the end of the game (some scenes cannot be zoomed or will be forced to zoom).

※The Steam and Nintendo Switch versions of the game have also received an update fixing certain issues alongside the PlayStation release.
