    Available on
    Samsung Gear VR / HTC Vive / PlayStation VR / Rift CV1

    OCULUS RIFT 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!

    Rounds are fast-paced, tense, occasionally silly, and almost always loud. Everybody has a role to play whether they are defusing the bomb or not. Swap out between rounds and share the experience with all of your friends! Puzzle solving and communication skills - and maybe a few friendships - will be put to the test as players race to defuse bombs while communicating quickly, clearly, and effectively.

    GEAR VR Local multiplayer only: Two or more players required. Only one Gear VR with the game is needed.

    • Local multiplayer party game – A great way to experience Gear VR with all of your friends at the same time! • Challenging puzzles that will test the limits of your communication skills… and friendships? • A different bomb every time! Procedurally generated puzzles keep the action fresh.
