Backgroundibb and obb started out as Richard Boeser's graduation project. It had its first public appearance as part of IndieCade's selection at the E3 2008 in Los Angeles. There it caught Sony's eye and plans were made to get ibb and obb to Playstation. Sparpweed decided to try and self publish the game on the Playstation Store and found the means to do so through the help of Gamefonds, Rotterdam Media Fonds and an investor. At the end of 2010 production officially started in collaboration with CodeGlue. The PlayStation3 version launched in August 2013 and the PC Steam version will be available on May 26th 2014.

Sparpweed is a two man studio, Richard Boeser and Roland IJzermans create games with a focus on original gameplay and atmosphere. Games we like to play ourselves. Depending on a project's needs we team up with other developers, designers, artists etc. Sparpweed stays small and flexible. This way we can stay innovative and spend time on experimentation.
