We had some good news recently. BFF or Die won a thing..! An industry panel comprised of senior members from Team 17, Rebellion, The Guardian, Marmalade, BAFTA, Barbican International and Norwich University selected BFF or Die as best multiplayer game for the UK leg of Game-On 2.0.
It will join over 100 other playable games as part of an history of video games exhibition that will run for 5 months at the Life Center in Newcastle, England. We'll be taking the latest build of the alpha demo which is currently at v0.2 at the time of writing. You can head over to the download page if you want to play it.
