Move or Die, a 4-player local and online multiplayer party game that's absolutely hilarious just got that little bit better, with new content for the PC version.

As the name suggests, if you don't keep moving, you will die. That alone makes it quite interesting, however it's the varied game modes and mutators that truly make it hilarious. Bomb tag being a favourite of mine, with one player starting off with a bomb that's about to blow-up and you need to tag a player to swap it, lots of amusing modes like that make it worth playing.

Previously exclusive to PS4, they've added in new Game Modes:

  • Shuriken Parry: Protect yourself from the shuriken-flinging turret and avoid the projectiles or parry them into your opponents
  • Spider-bombs: Drop automated spider-bombs that circle the map and its elements… but be aware that your opponents can do the same
  • Radiation: Avoid the green glow or otherwise die a radioactive death. Not great, not terrible
  • Paper Planes: Aim your remote-controlled paper plane at your foes and watch them go boom!

Three new Mutators also made it into this update:

  • What The Golf: Move around by launching yourself in the direction pointed by the oscillating arrow. Shout out to Triband for this one
  • Astral Projection: You can project your astral form in the direction you are facing and then teleport to its location
  • Accelerate: You gradually pick up more and more speed as you move

And there's also a bunch of new character skins, which are purely cosmetic.

While I absolutely love the game, there's two issues with it that annoy me. Firstly, you can only level up and unlock new skins and game modes by playing online. However, playing locally you have everything unlocked, you only need to unlock things for online play. Also, weirdly I've been unable to get my gamepads to work unless it's in Windowed mode or Borderless, when in Fullscreen they're just not picked up.

Other than that, it's fantastic and great to see it still supported so long after release.

I find my 360 controllers not working unless I run the game from Big Picture. No idea why there's actual difference.

An amazing game. Great for local coop

Happy for any new content

It's quite the opposite. If you stop moving, you die. You have to move all the time or you're losing health.

Try going into controller settings and *disabling* "xbox cofiguration support", that usually helps.

Wait... What? Thanks for taking interest and yes, I'll try that when home, but how disabling something that runs only in Big Picture would help in vanilla client?

It's not just for BPM. It alows you to configure the controlloer which can be used by the games with your configuration.
E.g. it can be used to allow you to play games with a PS4, where you normally couldn't.
AFAIK you can even remap the buttons kinda like a Steam Controller.

Yeah, I get the remapping part - did that several times. I didn't know what else it's for. I only own 1x Steam and 4x 360 controller and don't have a game that supports e.g. only PS4 controllers so it didn't "come up naturally". Thanks for educating!

No problem.
Hopefully Valve will fix this since it seems to cause quite some confusion. I was confused too when I first had problems in it (in Rocket League it detected two controllers even if only one, a Steam Controller, was connected, which was taken as player 2)
