We Were Here sequel Together announced
Sequel to the popular co-operative exploration puzzler coming next year.
Whether or not you’ve played a We Were Here game before, you can leap into We Were Here Together and start unravelling the secrets of Castle Rock, the Antarctic fortress at the heart of the series. The game sees players take the role of Antarctic explorers confronted by a mysterious castle in the middle of the frozen wastes.
Drawn inside by a distress call, it quickly becomes clear that this is no ordinary ruin… and that there is no ordinary way out. You and a co-op partner will need to be each other’s eyes and ears as you endeavour to escape. Every puzzle requires communication to solve – you can talk to each other, or you can stay trapped forever.
When you can’t fight and you can’t run, what options do you have left? It comes down to your wits, a walkie-talkie, and one other player on the same wavelength, caught up in the same troubling situation as you. Communication is everything in this first person cooperative puzzle game. And if being trapped wasn’t enough, not everything is as it seems.
The games of the We Were Here series of co-op puzzle games are connected, but can be played in any order. Following the first visit to Castle Rock in the free prequel We Were Here, Total Mayhem Games have big plans for their world of dark mysteries and complex conundrums. The second episode We Were Here Too was released as a commercial product in early 2018, and the story continues with the new game We Were Here Together. Future episodes will bring more of the exploration and cooperative puzzle solving that gave We Were Here a 92% positive reception on Steam.
According to Project Lead Lucia de Visser:
“We Were Here Too had a great reception, with players excited to learn more about the story behind the series. In this next episode the game will start of at the base camp giving more background to the characters and why they’re there. The trailer already features the jester, one of the most unpredictable characters…”
There’s no set release date for We Were Here Together on Steam, but we can expect it at some point next year.
