    Transitory issues aside, We Were Here Forever is, at least at the time of writing, my favourite game of the year thus far. At times it frustrated, but all that did was make the completion of its various brain teasers all the more satisfying. The mark of a truly fantastic game is one that aligns all its elements around a central purpose or goal. In this title, everything orbits around testing the skill of its participants, and that makes for a truly memorable experience for its pairs of players.

    We Were Here Forever is a great choice if you wish to spend some quality time at home with a friend. An atmospheric, puzzle-oriented and challenging co-op experience that will last for hours and never stops to entertain.

    We Were Here Forever certainly lives up to the mantle of Total Mayhem Games' most ambitious project yet, and is great fun with a friend. However, its puzzles aren't particularly innovative for the most part - despite their strong presentation - and the skewed balance of some puzzles often leave one member of your tag team twiddling their thumbs while waiting for the other to finish their part.

    We Were Here Forever is essentially a Non-Fungible-Escape Room. Playing with a friend means trying to explain what is happening to you, while at the same time you have to deduce from his (or her) words hints and clues that might help you find your freedom. Words are your only weapon, and your only way out, so make sure you play this with the right person (or the wrong one, for potentially hilarious outcomes).

    We Were Here Forever is a crazy co-op game that every lover of the genre might adore. However, the game suffers from some imbalances…

    We Were Here Forever has some good ideas but stumbles into unbalanced puzzles that leave one player standing around and sounding like Darth Vader in their walkie-talkie.

You will find yourself lost in the stories and beautiful artwork, then find yourself lost in a complex beautiful puzzle communicating with friend. Then the satisfaction of finishing the puzzle, while admiring the great animation and surroundings around you. This addition was the first to be more story forward, throwing you in the middle of various cut scenes as a mere fly on the wall, yet sometimes being used as a piece of the story. While playing this game, I felt fully submerged inside the game. It gives you time to reflect on the story and you truly get the sense that you are apart of it, and what you are doing matters in the story.

    This has been one of my favorite series and my favorite game of this series. Highly recommend.

It will have you head scratching and may be even have you yelling at each other from time to time. But in the end the puzzle are so well designed, that when you hear the puzzle complete sound it feels like a great accomplishment.

    I was very much impressed by the visuals, gameplay and especially the music! I will give it a 10 when the devs have made some performance improvements. But don't wait for this to happen, because it is already a great game to play!!
