Where The Scariest Thing is Bad Communication: 

On February 3, 2017, Total Mayhem Games delivered its first Steam game, We Were Here. The game is a free helpful puzzler (with VR uphold!) in which two players must investigate an archaic château and reveal insider facts to get away. 
We Were Here is prominent for the imagination of its different riddles, yet in addition for its air. The game is both dim and puzzling, requesting that players investigate a noteworthy middle age ruin, actually spooky with spirits from an earlier time. It resembles a frightening rendition of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, and it's accessible at no expense. 
In October 2019, We Were Here turned into a set of three, with We Were Here Too (February 2, 2018) and We Were Here Together (October 10, 2019) joining the positions of the two-player center riddle gold mine. Likewise, as of June 2020, every one of the three games are accessible on Xbox One. 

As the games' illustrations, control plans, intuitiveness, and clean have developed, so too has the sticker price—something that enraged numerous fans and prompted generally lower scores, especially for We Were Here Too. By and by, each of the three games rotate around a similar four interactivity mechanics:

 1. The two players convey through walkie-talkie. 

Voice talk in the We Were Here arrangement spins around an in-game two-manner radio. The radio has two separate catches—one to impart signs and the other to get them. These catches underscore the significance of talking, yet in addition tuning in. 
My companion and I initially utilized Discord to dodge these limitations. Nonetheless, when we replayed the games, we found the walkie-talkies made for a significantly more intriguing and convincing interactivity experience. (Despite the fact that the games are as yet fun through Discord, no uncertainty.) 

2. Riddles commonly have one witness and one entertainer. 

In many riddles these games offer, one player has the data different necessities to get away from the situation. This is typically done by enacting certain catches or pushing specific switches. 

Arrangements can come from numerous points of view, however there are not many riddles where the two players give data or act without a reasonable gap isolating them. 

3. The games are set in a frightening, middle age palace. 

The We Were Here arrangement never really wanders from its archaic tasteful. Indeed, it happens only within a manor, just sometimes wandering outside. 

A standard setting is pretty ordinary for a computer game set of three, so I don't hold this against the games by any means. All things considered, the setting improves the feeling of threat in expecting to finish these riddles, as our heroes might bite the dust. 

4. A few, however not all, puzzles have a deadly clock joined. 

One fascinating technician is the utilization of a savage clock for specific riddles. Try not to finish your finish of the condition sufficiently quick and one character (as a rule the entertainer/educated) meets their terrible destiny here and there. 
This just occurs for certain riddles, which means it's more significant when you do experience a riddle with this technician—also more distressing when the music gets as you're attempting to sort things out. 
The games infrequently change these standards, generally for a solitary riddle prior to getting back to shape. More often than not, however, they follow these examples perfectly. Not the slightest bit do the riddles' binding together subject murder the ongoing interaction; I had heaps of fun with pretty much every riddle the arrangement tossed at me, regardless of how samey they may appear. 

We should investigate each game in the establishment, and why they're worth your time:

We Were Here :

We Were Here is a brilliant (free!) computer game, if you have someone else to play it with. The game isn't very cleaned, with certain bugs and intelligence issues. Yet, for a creepy, hour and a half frolic giving a balance of goosebumps and snickering fits—either from alarm or confused headings—this game is one of the most pleasant encounters I've had with a companion. It likewise showed me a lot about my companion's talking/listening propensities—things I never thought about, in spite of knowing them for a very long time. 
The pacing in We Were Here is exceptional. The source and entertainer oftentimes find the opportunity to switch jobs, the riddles increase in force and unpleasantness all through, and the two players have a genuine feeling of fear as they piece together this present château's pained history, spooky foundation voices recounting the story en route. 
The game has basic yet compelling natural narrating, and the riddles are likely the best that the arrangement had to bringing to the table. Each is created to be basic, yet enjoyable to convey through, and there's such a great amount of assortment here. It's reasonable the devs needed to try out a variety of riddles, and they're unquestionably fun! (Regardless of whether the bugs leave a piece to be wanted… ) 

Discussing bugs, VR uphold was added about a year post-dispatch. I don't have a VR framework, however from my companion's insight… it's not actually great. Certain associations are troublesome, especially for puzzles with an accentuation on exact developments. Yet, when the game is this environmental, and VR uphold is free, it's surely worth an attempt in the event that you have a viable gadget.

We Were Here Too 

We Were Here Too is the subsequent riddle game in the arrangement and, as I would like to think, the best one regarding story and climate. By and large, the game's riddles are comparative in quality to the main game's. The witness and the entertainer share a significantly more dynamic part in puzzle-explaining, and the illustrations additionally got a serious decent upgrade (likely on the grounds that this one really costs cash). 
One issue this game has, notwithstanding, is that it is so damn simple contrasted with the first. Given the principal game was free and about a similar length, it's difficult to legitimize the $10 sticker price (regardless of whether the riddles are marginally better). 
What makes it worth the cost is the air and the natural narrating. This game really offers much more to investigate, and more motivating force for doing as such, as players are compensated for finding concealed items all through the guide that open an additional consummation. This mystery looking through helped me draw in with the climate and notice little mysteries I could never have discovered something else. 
So what this game needs trouble, it compensates for in replayability. I likewise experienced less bugs, and found the riddles more refined than the to some degree test ones from the primary game. This time around, the riddles consolidate more prominent components of correspondence (images, guided guidelines, and so on) that turn out best for an agreeable encounter. 
On the off chance that this game had delivered independent for ten bucks, it'd be a simple buy. This is on the grounds that it was delivered after the unfathomable (and free) We Were Here that there's a degree of desire for Total Mayhem's spin-off that may have been uncalled for… particularly since We Were Here would have been worth a little sticker price in any case.

   We Were Here Together 

We Were Here Together is an exceptionally strong game; it is. It has insignificant bugs, more cutscenes, better designs, more intricate mechanics, more riddles including the two parts in a single focal region… There's such a great amount in this game, that it's truly clear it's a third in a set of three. 
Notwithstanding, like thirds in a set of three, it loses a ton of its fire. The riddles become insipid on the witness (and even get exhausting on the entertainer) with a ton of vacation and monotonous arrangements. The conditions are large, however unfilled. The cutscenes moderate the pacing down to the point of being unenjoyable… There were a couple of issues with it that make it less intriguing than the first and second games. 

This shouldn't imply that I didn't appreciate it, or that I figure it did not merit the $13 asking cost, since it was. The riddles that are acceptable are great, and the climate is so immense and beautiful that I'd express it's as yet a decent development to what in particular Total Mayhem has made in the course of recent years. I'd suggest getting this game on the off chance that you loved the two preceding it.

Last Thoughts 

As far as quality, I'd rank We Were Here Too first, trailed by the first and afterward Together. 

I extremely delighted in the environment and nature of We Were Here Too, regardless of whether it doesn't give it to free. We Were Here still has an astonishing, even outstanding, quality to it for an allowed to-play VR game, and I prescribe it to anyone with a companion keen on puzzle games. On the off chance that you like the initial two, at that point We Were Here Together is still a serious encounter, with somewhat more riddles and a lot bigger spending plan, regardless of whether it forfeits a smidgen of the arrangement's spirit consequently. 
As far as worth, in any case, it's difficult to beat We Were Here. The principal game's an incredible section point for those hoping to attempt the arrangement without spending a penny. Its reality is so brimming with riddle, part second dynamic, and intriguing riddles, that anyone would have a great time translating the situations the game has to bring to the table. 

On the off chance that you have a companion, colleague, or mate who is eager to evaluate a two-player community game, I enthusiastically suggest We Were Here… alongside the remainder of the arrangement if the air, puzzle style, and feeling of frenzy suits your play style.
