Update for Mac - Fix/Workaround for Friend Invite overlay missing.

Multiple players reported on friend invites not working on Mac. More precise, the Invite screen would not pop up after selecting 'invite friend' from the game menu.

It is still not perfect as it seems that with the current game engine we're using there is no way to make the invite work as intended.
The workaround after the update is to select 'invite friend' from the menu and then press Shift + Tab to launch the Steam overlay, which would then allow you to invite a friend.

In the long run we hope to have a proper solution as we understand this is not ideal.

Cheers

Best Friends Forever Double Pack


Get two copies of the game so you can give one to a friend.

Is your ibb looking for an online obb? The Best Friends Forever Double Pack gives you an extra copy of the game at a strong discount. Treat your best Steam friend to a gift and start ibbobbing together online.

Designed for Two Player Co-op


ibb & obb is a cooperative adventure designed for two players. So find a friend for some true co-op puzzle solving fun.

Can I play online?
You can play co-op locally or online. Online you can either invite a Steam friend or match up with a random other player. For a local game you can make use of keyboard and controllers, or a combination of those.

No single player?
Technically you can control both characters simultaneously on your keyboard, but the whole game is really designed around the interaction between two players. On your own it'll be very hard and simply less fun.

One of the most enjoyable co-op experiences I've had. Great puzzles, beautiful art style, cute characters, good music. Get a whole lot of mileage out of a handful of simple gameplay mechanics. You'll find yourself screaming in frustration, shouting and pumping your fist in triumph, erupting in cathartic laughter as it finally seems you and your friend will accomplish the intricate, difficult procedure you've spent so long figuring out and attempting, only to see your friend make a stupid mistake and ruin everything at the last second.

The game only lets you communicate with your online parter by drawing blobby, imprecise lines onscreen. This could be seen as a drawback, but in fact it becomes its own meta-puzzle: how do I explain this detailed series of actions that will involve precise timing, without using any words? You come to develop a rudimentary syntax; you start saying yes and no by moving back and forth and jumping up and down, respectively, or you draw frantic scribbles on the screen to indicate frustration. It's so much more satisfying to solve puzzles this way; you really feel like you've accomplished something beyond the game itself. Of course there are also those infuriating moments when you give up trying to use the in-game language and resort to Steam chat, or even make a phone call and talk through it in real time. And then there are transcendent moments when you and your partner both know exactly what to do without attempting any communication at all.

It's also great fun to be a jerk and push your partner over cliffs or into enemies.

If I have only one criticism it's that if you're playing with more than one friend (say, one online and one IRL) there's no reliable way to keep track of which levels you've finished with each friend. Like, I beat the game with friend A while I was only a few levels in with friend B, and then I'd start up the game with friend B and some of the puzzles would start to seem mighty familiar, and I couldn't be sure if it was only because I'd already played them with friend A, or because I'd also already played them with friend B. You can reset ALL of your progress, which would have made it easier to kow where I was with friend B if I'd started with them AFTER beating the game with friend A, but I had two games going at the same time so deleting my progress with friend A would have deleted the friend B's progress as well, and it wouldn't have been fair to friend A, either, if we ever decided we wanted to go back and try to get all the crystals on certain levels without replaying all the others. The option for separate play "sessions" could have solved this (I always thought having three save slots in the Zelda games was overkill, but now I see the reasoning behind it). But, lengthy complaint notwithstanding, this is really a minor problem.

I was lucky enough to get this in a double pack as part of a bundle, but It's definitely worth the full price.

This game has an adorable art style, great music, and clever and fun gameplay. The puzzles all feel fair, and it usually does a good job introducing new things to you as you play. Great fun if you have someone to play it with, and the best friend bundle is a great deal.

A very fun platfomer/puzzle co-op game, you run around the world as the two creatures ibb and obb while facing different puzzles and enemies that will keep you intrigued and guessing. Some of the puzzles can deffaintly be a bit challenging, however nothing game breaking. Obviously this game is tailor made for two people to play, however it can be played singleplayer too if you so desire. There's not much else to the game besides the main game, but you won't need much else has there are plenty of secrets and challenges to keep you playing for a while. Pick it up, grab a friend, and you'll have a great time, it's a blast.

I've been playing this game with a friend, and it's a very interesting and abstract game. I get a portal 2 vibe from some of the puzzles, but it's very enchanting and easy to pick up. I'd recommend playing it with a friend.

Incredible and cute puzzle game! You can play it alone but i'd honestly advise to play with a team mate. The coop is much better and funnier. Some puzzles are a bit tough sometimes, but a good teamwork can solve any of them. It's a typical ps3 indie game, original, fun, cute, relaxing. Just awesome if you want to have a great time! I strongly recommend it :)
10/10.

One of the best Co-op Puzzle games ever to be created (It's up there with Portal 2), true Co-op in which you HAVE to play cooperatively with another person in order to move forward in the puzzle, and alot of time you both will need to be in sync too.
The puzzles are challenging and very creative (again, up there with portal 2) and it's a great fun figuring the solution with a friend (especially if you two are on voice chat).
The music and Art design are both very good too, the only minor problem i had with this game is that the camera can be abit clunky at times.
I'm really enjoying this game right now playing it with a friend, bought it at a retail 14$ for a 2 pack and i think it's fairly worth it, on a sale it's a steal.

Ibb & Obb offers an AMAZING art style I have never seen in any other game. The puzzle design is brilliant and difficult if you play it by yourself. (I recommend playing it in co-op mode, it will be easier than you think), It reminds me to Thomas Was Alone with a crazy gravity system (similar to Portal).
The soundtrack is enjoyable, relaxing, soft and makes me want to buy the OST.
The gameplay is a little confusing once you start playing, but you'll handle it later. Going back to the puzzles: although the puzzles are brilliant, once you have reached the fourth level, it will give you an instantly headache.

The good:

◘ Relaxing, and quiet soundtrack.

◘ Amazing art style

◘ Great puzzles

◘ Good gameplay quality (I recommend you to play it with a controller)

◘ Amazing PC port

The bad:

◘ THE ♥♥♥♥IN HEADACHES ;_;

Ibb & Obb it's a great option to buy if you are looking for a puzzle-platform game.
