Ib (pronounced "Eeb," similar to "Eve") is a freeware horror adventure game by kouri made in RPG Maker 2000.

A young girl named Ib visits an art gallery with her parents.
While observing the many exhibits, she suddenly realizes she is alone.
And in her search for others, she finds things awry in the gallery...

The game is focused on exploration and puzzle-solving.
There are no battles, and it does not demand quick reflexes.
It's designed to be accessible to all kinds of players, so enjoy.

Please make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.
If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.

If you get a DirectDraw error, right-click the EXE, go to Properties, Compatability, and try other compatibility modes.

If the font doesn't seem correct, download and install the MS Gothic font.

Control issues ("automatically moving in a direction" or "no buttons work") are inherent to RPG Maker and cannot be fixed permanently.
To fix them, try turning on NumLock and pressing Shift and a Numpad direction at the exact same time until controls normalize.
(This undoes the issue of RPG Maker getting "stuck" on an input if Shift and a Numpad button are pressed simultaneously.)

Please read the included "Ib Manual.txt" should you encounter any other problems.

Usage Notes

kouri has forbidden making any form of profit from gameplay videos, generally via monetized videos.
He has also requested that people not modify, misappropriate, or redistribute any images or music from his game.
(His primary concern is people uploading the music online, as it was made by others and being used with permission.)

Endings Guide

The game has multiple endings, so I've compiled a guide on the factors that go into getting them.

This guide is extremely spoilery, so do NOT read this if you haven't beaten the game at least once.
Even then, it's only recommended that you read this if you want to know exactly
how to get the other endings and aren't willing to experiment on your own.

It does not give any puzzle hints or the like, so don't read it if you're just looking for those.
