We Were Here is an unusual puzzle game for two players. The title was developed by an independent studio Total Mayhem Games. The title was released on PC as a free-to-play title.
In We Were Here for PC the action is presented from the first-person perspective. The game takes place in a mysterious, abandoned castle located in a cold wasteland. The players take control of two characters. The first player assumes the role of a prisoner locked in a small part of the fortress while the second player has access to a much larger part of the area. The main objective of the game is to make both characters meet each other in person.
What makes this task harder is the fact that, similarly to Myst series, the game contains many logic and environmental riddles of various difficulty. Like in popular escape rooms, cooperation is needed to succeed. However, the only way the players can communicate with each other is through a radio. In addition to that, the players must face harsh conditions in the castle – the protagonists can, for example, freeze to death.
We Were Here for PC offers only cooperation mode. It is possible to play with the other player only through the Internet – the developers decided that a split screen mode wouldn’t work well here.
We Were Here for PC features middle-of-the-road graphics. It is worth mentioning that the game supports virtual reality goggles. However, they aren’t mandatory to play the game.
