Next Friend is a 3D platform adventure game where you make dumb caterpillars cry. Discover a grotesque and surrealist world. You play as a tiny parasite desperately trying to penetrate a caterpillar. Sadly, each caterpillar is already playing with their best friend, another parasite. To take its place, you have to get rid of it. Roll and jump all along the young caterpillars’ body. Reach its friend and kill it.


In Next Friend, every caterpillar have a parasite and it’s their best friend. You play as one the parasite. One day, you no longer have fun with your caterpillar, so you go elsewhere.
