Developer Sparpweed, currently working on the cooperative PlayStation Network platformer Ibb and Obb, has just announced that, against some of its best wishes, the team has decided to implement online cooperative support for the game in order to best accommodate all users. While this adds a rather large workload to the at-the-time nearly complete game, the team believes that doing so will help to ship a much better product.
Still, adding a component to the game at the scale of online multiplayer does add more development time to the game. Sparpweed adds that it knows that releasing the game soon wouldn’t help the game’s chances of being noticed, so the later release date could be beneficial to both the game and its sales, in the long run.
