The launch of Sony’s PlayStation VR headset is less than two weeks away, and even though dozens of games will be available for the peripheral on day one, more announcements just keep on coming. Over the weekend, Steel Crate Games confirmed that Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, their multiplayer bomb defusal sim, will be available to download through the PlayStation Store on October 13.
In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a virtual room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the bomb defusal manual. But there’s a catch: the experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast!
With PS VR, experts can view and control the bomb defusal manual on their TV screen while communicating with the defuser. The manual is also freely available and can be printed or viewed on a tablet or any other web-enabled device.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is an absolute blast at parties (I WILL NOT apologize for that pun) and it’s also currently available for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and as a non-VR PC download through Steam.
