About This Game

I heard someone say this is a "rage game". I don't think it is, but I'm old and all games were hard when I was a kid 🤷 If you enjoy having to think on your feet and make quick decisions while evading hazards, you'll prob have fun with this game. If you want something easy and chilled, you might want to try something else instead.

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?

You can play with your friends online by using Steam's new "Remote Play Together" feature, or by using Parsec. Read our Steam community posts 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.
