Ib is a remake of the popular 2D exploration adventure game from Japanese indie game developer, Kouri. It originally came out in February 2012 as a free game. It follows the story of the titular protagonist, a young girl who visits an art gallery with her parents. However, she suddenly realizes that she is alone after perusing the various works of art. And as she starts to search for someone or anyone, the museum begins to change.

The gameplay revolves around exploring your surroundings, collecting items, and solving puzzles. There are multiple endings according to your actions and choices in the mysterious gallery. This remake version of the game comes with additions and optimizations. Almost all graphics for maps, characters, and stills are improved. There are new and re-designed pieces of artwork as well.
