0.3 RPG Maker XP
0.4 RPG Maker VX ACE
Created on September 2012, it was made using RPG Maker XP and the playable version 0.3 was released on December 2012. It was later redone in RPG Maker VX ACE due to the large amount of bugs in the XP version.
The project was later canceled after the release of a joke version of 0.4 for April Fools day. The reason behind the cancelation is because the original creator of Ib, Kouri, did not want any Ib fangames to be created.
While Ibtalia version 0.4 still exists, the only way to play is by sending a note to the creator of Ibtalia asking for a download on the agreement that you do not redistribute the files.
Game Plot/Game Summary
After a world meeting, Italy brought his friends Germany and Japan to an art exhibition where the famous works of Weiss Guertena were being displayed. Things seem to be going smoothly until the trio notice they are the only ones in the gallery. Stranger still are the letters and voices that manifest after they try to leave. The door locked, they are unable to escape the gallery and have only one other option. To follow the voices and enter the painting into a world of twisted art.

After going to the same gallery as the members of the Axis, he and the other members of the Allies were trapped in the gallery. He was then dragged into a forest painting by America. His flower is a rose, similar to America's. If his flower wilts, he will die.
He went with Italy and Gemany to the art gallery. His status after entering the painting world is currently unknown. He appears for a brief moment at the end of Chapter 4.

Trivia/ Extra Facts
- In Chapter 3, America is unable to move a large doll that is later moved by Germany with little effort. This may be a sign that America is losing his strength in the painting world. (Or that his flower which was damaged may also be linked to his strength.)
- The flowers used to represent the life force of a nation are the national flower of the specific country. As such, it can be assumed that the flower representing Japan, France, Russia and China are the Cherry Blossom or Chrysanthemum, Iris, Chamomile, and possibly the Peony or Plum Blossom respectively. (Japan and China do not yet have an official national flower)
