You awake inside the sinister Castle Rock with no way out - were you betrayed, or simply not that clever? The We Were Here Series is returning with a new co-op puzzle adventure! Do you and your friend have what it takes to face the dark forces of this realm or will you be trapped… forever?

For a long time now, the cooperative We Were Here series has revolved around escaping Castle Rock. We Were Here Forever ramps up this adventure with new, nonlinear ways to explore the sinister castle together with your partner or friend. Of course, players will also experience an even more intriguing 12+ hour storyline which will lead to a grand finale… With your trusty walkie-talkie as your only means of communication, you and your friend must solve mind-blowing puzzles together to escape once again - or so you hope!

You and your friend are trapped in the realm of Castle Rock with no way out - were you betrayed, or simply not that clever? Work together to explore and solve puzzles in this mysterious Antarctic adventure. Be aware, nothing is what it seems - there are dark secrets hidden in the shadows. Will you be able to escape?

...starting with a message from the Jester...

Vermin of Castle Rock
Hear my whispers as you walk and talk
You were left behind, in my majesty's keep
BETRAYED… or simply not that clever?
Bring me what I seek
Or suffer-r-r… hahahahaha FOREVER!

Keep your walkie-talkie close at hand and make sure to describe everything you see! We Were Here Forever is all about cooperative puzzle solving through communication and observation. New and engaging puzzles will take you and your friend to previously unexplored areas of Castle Rock - Forever is the largest We Were Here game yet! Can you find a way out of the King’s Keep? Do you dare to dig up a mystery in the graveyard by night ... or will you crack knowing something is watching you from the dark?

Make your way through previously unseen parts of Castle Rock, and once outside the Keep you will begin to uncover the story of Rockbury: the town’s inhabitants and the escape plans of a resistance formed against the King. Hope will lead you on to an eerie Graveyard and have you descend down into the dark waters of the Foundry. As you do so, you will learn more about past events that have taken place in this mysterious place. While trying to make your escape from Castle Rock in We Were Here Forever, you might start believing what you feared all along. Does one ever truly escape Castle Rock?

Just a few more days left until you can enter Castle Rock once more!

To celebrate that We Were Here Forever is coming out next week, Total Mayhem Games has revealed their launch trailer containing the first ever shown footage from the game itself! In this trailer, the Jester’s familiar voice will lead you through many shots of the game which give glimpses of the puzzles players will have to face in order to escape Castle Rock.

The team behind the game, which is currently larger than it’s ever been before, has worked hard on creating a We Were Here game that surpasses its predecessors in terms of graphics as well as scale. This makes We Were Here Forever both the largest and the most graphically advanced game in the series to date, with a more lively world packed with small details and over 22 completely new puzzles. Even experienced puzzle solvers can expect over 12 hours of gameplay!

We Were Here Stories: Chronicles of Castle Rock

Total Mayhem Games gives players a look at the lore of the We Were Here series with a live-action video series which tells the backstory of the series and also reveals teasers for the latest installment: We Were Here Forever.

Expect the last two episodes of the We Were Here Stories: Chronicles of Castle Rock to be released a day before the game launches on May 10. The backstory of the cursed castle in the We Were Here game series is shared through the eyes of Kees Klokkenmaker in six chapters, narrated by one of his descendants.

The games of the We Were Here Series are two player co-op puzzle adventures. Players take the role of Antarctic explorers who find themselves caught up in a mystery revolving around the realm of Castle Rock. Being separated most of the time, players will each have to explore different areas, while every puzzle requires teamwork to be solved. Asymmetric puzzles give each partner different information, and challenges players to talk to each other and figure out exactly what information they have and how it might lead to a solution. You and your partner have nothing but your wits, a walkie- talkie, and whatever you can find on your way. Do you have what it takes to escape this mysterious realm or will you be trapped ... forever?

Key Features:

  • Two player co-op: the puzzles you encounter take two to solve - you both have a role to play! Communicate via walkie-talkies, and act as each other’s eyes and ears
  • Connect through experience: when you find yourself in sudden danger, will you freeze, or can you keep cool and explain things clearly to your friend - before your time runs out…
  • On the edge of your seat: be part of a thrilling adventure in the lively world of Castle Rock as you and your friend take on the ancient powers aligned against you
  • Spine-tingling story: there is much to discover… and much to fear - you’ve met the Jester, but is he even the most powerful being within the walls of Castle Rock?
  • Next gen experience from UI to gameplay
  • All new asymmetrical cooperative puzzles and challenges in a lively world full of charming and thrilling details

We Were Here Forever will arrive on PC (Steam / Epic Games Store) on May 10, 2022, followed by PS4/PS5 and Xbox Series X|S/Xbox One at a later time.
