FIRST IMPRESSIONS

This screenshot from hryule made us smile.

There was a fun stream by LIRIK, as well as one by sodapoppin. If you want to compare how quickly you solved the puzzles compared to well known streamers, take a look!

Review Roundup

We’ve been reading the reviews good and bad (mostly good, we’re happy to say) and there are lots of good points and helpful feedback. It goes without saying that leaving a review is a great way to support the game. Some were quite amusing. Here are a few we liked.

Me and my friend argued alot, fights were had, and im pretty sure a shanking was involved. 5/5 would play again.

Some people are naturally argumentative types. If that’s you, then rest assured you can still enjoy We Were Here Together!

– Excellent story
– Incredible soundtrack
– Immersive atmosphere
– CUTE RUNNING AND JUMPING ANIMATIONS.
– Fair price.

5 STARS GAME.

~ Captain Sloth

We’re very tempted to put ‘CUTE RUNNING AND JUMPING ANIMATIONS’ on the store page. After all, we trust a sloth would know a thing or two about cute.

Yeah if you want to become infuriated by your friend, and you want to infuriate your friend at the same time, pick this up.

~ Loathing Editor

Another vote for mutual infuriation. To be clear, this was a positive review 😉

good game, only buy if you are a gigabrain.

~ landocalrissian

You don’t really need a gigabrain to play We Were Here Together… but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Or find a smart friend!

Happy exploring, everyone!


Unmatched popularity and crowded servers

Unmatched popularity and crowded servers


Since we launched We Were Here its popularity has only gone up. We do what we can to keep up with the demand on our servers, but for now there is still a limit to what we can achieve (and keep it FTP). So please understand that you might have to wait a bit before you can play the game due to these full servers. As for now you will see the message “A communication error has occurred” whenever the servers are overloaded. Thank you for your patience.
