The Second Update: Boosted Challenge!



The second update to BFF or Die is now live on Steam. We’ve been listening to people’s feedback and watching all the playthroughs on Youtube and Twitch. (Here’s a fun fact - the video that Logitech G made is now the most viewed video of a single game on their channel with over half a million views so far!)

From what we can tell, people on Steam really do love a challenge. In this update we’ve changed various aspects of the story game in 1, 2, 3 and 4 player modes so that the excitement kicks in sooner and the challenge gets ramped up.

We always encourage people to play BFF or Die in co-op mode as this is what the game was built for. If you didn’t already hear, you can now play as if it were an online multiplayer by using Parsec. Read our previous community post to find out how to do that.

We’ve also started adding our favourite quotes from Steam reviews to the main store page, so if you write something interesting/insightful/funny/heart-warming in your review then we may add a quote!

We’ll be continuing to listen to feedback to help us figure out what updates to make in the future in addition to the things we already have planned. Have fun!

Cheers,

Online Multiplayer Using Parsec!


For a time we had plans to make BFF or Die work as an online multiplayer game. After further discussion and some early tests we came to the conclusion that it would add an unachievable workload to our small team of three, who at that time were totally self funded and working on the game in our spare time only.

People still do ask us if BFF or Die will ever be playable as an online multiplayer. We’re very glad to say that… it is *now* thanks to some magic software called Parsec! After someone on the community page (thank you to a prolific Steam reviewer called Darkness!) told us about Parsec we were intrigued and started testing it out.

Here’s how it works: you decide which game a friend can access, run it and then stream your screen to them. You also give your friend permission to access your control pad and/or keyboard. That friend can then play any game with you as if it has native online multiplayer support. Magic!

A few tests later and we were impressed enough to get in touch with the people who make Parsec and have a call with them so now BFF or Die is on their list of curated games :) It really does work well, especially if you have a good internet connection and a fast enough PC.

Here’s how to get started:

First use whichever voice chat you normally use and start a call with your friend. Parsec doesn’t require this, but BFF or Die is *all about the communication* so you need to be able to speak and listen to your teammate to have fun playing it together.

  • Download the Parsec application from: http://parsecgaming.com (it’s free)
  • Open it and create an account.
  • Ask your friend to download Parsec and create an account.
  • Open Steam and Run BFF or Die, leave it running and go back to Parsec.
  • In the Parsec hosting settings select the apps on your machine that can be accessed by other people - choose BFF or Die.
  • Add your friend to your friend list and choose which controllers they can ‘take over’- choose keyboard and/or control pad.
  • Your friend will see a “play” button which let’s them join your session if they click it.
  • Now when you go back to BFF or Die your friend will see and hear it and they can control a character so you can play together!

Once you beat the story mode in 2-player mode get another friend to play with you in 3-player and then another in 4-player. You’ll notice the levels change around and feel different depending on how many people are playing! Each mode has separate trophies too for those who love a challenge. Then after story mode you can try random/procedural challenges in “The Infinite Trials which is *really* hard”.

If you have any issues using Parsec they’ll be happy to help you on their Discord chat, it’s their software so they know how to use it best: https://discordapp.com/invite/cQjEGFy

We still think being in the same room with your Player 2 is the best way to experience BFF or Die but if that’s not possible because you live far away from each other, well, now you can BFF together online using Parsec.

Have fun!

About This Game

Congratulations! You and your friends are graduating from the prestigious Intergalactic Time Academy. No time for partying though as your first mission awaits! The Orbees are all missing. Yes, those curious little beings made of energy who power our time-tech are nowhere to be fou... no, wait! We have a faint trace on their signal. Are you brave enough to rescue them?

Prepare yourself for unknown dangers. If you find some of the Orbees they might equip your Space-Time Machine with new tech. Decide who is in charge of each gadget and combine your abilities to discover the best strategies.

Use cunning, comradeship and co-operation to survive and never forget the Academy motto: “BFF or Die!”

Best Friends Forever

BFF or Die is a game for you if:
  • You want a 2-4 player game to play with your partner/family/friends where you get to do everything as a team.
  • Pure co-operation sounds fun to you as it’s a different feeling when you all work together.
  • You like games that are easy to start playing but then gradually get more challenging.
  • You like games that let you figure things out yourself rather than “hand holding” you too much and telling you what to do.
  • You want a game with a fun, short campaign mode which adds replayability by having difficult trophies to collect and also an unlockable “Infinite” mode.

Is There Online Multiplayer?

We do not have native online multiplayer support… BUT… you *can* play with your friends online by using Parsec. Read our Steam community post about it to find out more.

What to Expect

We strongly recommend playing in 2, 3 or 4 player mode as this is when the game is most fun. Playtime will vary depending on your skill level but as a guide:

1-Player story game: 2-3 hours
2-Player story game: 2-3 hours
3-Player story game: 2-3 hours
4-Player story game: 2-3 hours
“The Infinite Trials”: 1-999 hours! Or maybe ∞ hours :) Complete as many randomised/procedural levels in a row as you can without losing. Go back to the start if you die.

You can either share controllers (two people per controller) or have separate controllers. As a minimum you need the keyboard and one control pad to have a 4-player game. Or you can use four separate control pads, it’s up to you.

There’s a story mode with 30 levels followed by an unlockable “Infinite Trials” mode with challenging randomised/procedural levels.

The game will feel different depending on how many people play. Levels also change around when the number of players change. The characters’ story text will change depending on which characters you pick. Each mode has a different set of trophies. If you want a complete set you will need to complete all modes.
