To quote: We Are Nowhere is a brief nonsense conversation with the deranged and disembodied and this is a PS3 port of it.

Its short, simple and not really a game. I don’t really expect many people to like it. But I’m still very interested to hear what people think of it.

If anyone is interested in translating it or writing their own conversations or choose your own adventure stories then let me know and I will fix it up a bit more and externalize all of the text.
