Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes VR is a cooperative virtual reality puzzle game where you and your friends work together to defuse bombs. Here’s the breakdown:

The Bomb Diffusal Challenge:

  • One player, the “Defuser,” wears the VR headset and finds themself in a room with a ticking bomb. The bomb will have different modules attached, with wires, buttons, lights, and other features.
  • The other players are the “Experts.” They don’t wear the VR headset and instead rely on a separate, free Bomb Defusal Manual
  • The Defuser needs to describe the bomb’s features to the Experts through clear communication.
  • The Experts then consult the manual and guide the Defuser through the defusal process, deciphering clues and instructions to safely disarm the bomb before time runs out.

Key Aspects of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes VR:

  • Communication is Crucial: Success hinges on clear communication between the Defuser describing the bomb and the Experts using the manual to find the solution.
  • Procedurally Generated Bombs: Every bomb is different, keeping the gameplay fresh and challenging.
  • High Tension: The ticking clock and the potential for an explosion create a thrilling and suspenseful atmosphere.
  • VR Immersion: The VR experience adds another layer of realism for the Defuser, making the bomb defusal process even more intense.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes VR is available on most VR platforms, including:

  • HTC Vive
  • Oculus Rift/Rift S/ Quest/ Quest 2
  • PlayStation VR
  • Windows Mixed Reality

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • While the game is playable in VR, it can also be played without VR using a PC or mobile device for the Defuser and a separate device (tablet, phone, etc.) for the Experts with the manual.
  • The game is designed for at least two players, with one being the Defuser and the others as Experts.
