Co-op puzzle game We Were Here Forever will release on May 10, offering an experience similar to Escape Room that tests friendships.
Developer and publisher Total Mayhem Games has released a trailer for We Were Here Forever – a cooperative puzzle game where the skills and strengths of friendship will be put to the test. We Were Here Forever marks the fourth installment in the first-person co-op puzzle series from Total Mayhem Games, which takes place in Castle Rock. The first part, simply titled We Were Here, launched on PC in early 2017, with console versions coming to market in the following years. We Were Here Too launched in 2018, followed by the launch of We Were Here Together in 2019.
This particular brand emulates the Escape Room type of experience – minus the card game elements. Ubisoft also experimented with this style of gameplay with Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time, a VR Escape Game that pits two to four players to stop an evil mage in the Fortress of Time. Of course, titles like The Room also capture this experience. And some would argue that the Resident Evil and Portal series similarly offer the same level of tension as Escape Room.
Yesterday, May 5, Total Mayhem Games posted a first look at the title We Were Here Forever in the latest trailer. The title will launch on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on May 10. While the co-op puzzle game will launch on PlayStation and Xbox like its predecessors, Total Mayhem Games has yet to share a date. specific expiration for console versions. Similar to other multiplayer games, We Were Here Forever emphasizes the importance of communication. Co-op players, who take on the role of Antarctic explorers, will need to act as each other’s eyes and ears as they attempt to solve Castle Rock’s puzzles and navigate the so-called “spine-tingling story”. Watch the release trailer in the video below:
The puzzles in We Were Here Forever will give each player different information, forcing teammates to communicate effectively if they are to achieve their goals. In terms of available tools, walkie-talkies, and player intelligence, all of which can make or break Castle Rock’s chances of finding the kingdom.
As for co-op puzzle games, the We Were Here series has become a success story. Total Mayhem Games recorded that 6.5 million people explored Castle Rock in the first three seasons. Impressively, We Were Here Too and We Were Here Together have reached a million copies on Steam alone. The latest installment could very well mark another success story for the creators of this franchise.
