“Verdict: Buy, buy, buy. A must-have video game.”
Ars Technica

“...you'll have a lot of close calls as you're sweating bullets down to sometimes literally the last second.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“I loved playing Keep Talking. I think it’s the most fun I’ve had in a cooperative game in a long time. I’d recommend it to everyone. I wish I was playing it right now.”

About This Game

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.

Features

  • 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.
  • Local multiplayer party game – A great way to experience VR with all of your friends at the same time!
  • Only one copy of the game needed! If you can talk to the bomb defuser, you can be their expert! Try using your favorite voice chat service and playing remotely.

The bomb defusal manual is freely available at http://www.bombmanual.com and can be printed or viewed on a tablet or any other web-enabled device.

Great coop game. You have to be extremely specific with your partner to diffuse bombs.
Difficulty increases gradually and the different modules are fun.

Timeline of playing this game:

"Easy peasy."
"There's an alien holding a gun to a stickman."
"It's an O with 2 legs." "... You mean OMEGA."
"You suck, I was waiting for intel."
"You weren't fast enough!"
"Why is there a **** alarm I CAN'T HEAR YOU"
"I'll tell you what it says when the lights come back on."
"I would press the button, but I don't have any arms."
"ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME? WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME?"
"NO ONE LIKES ME =("

10/10 would blow friend's arms off again

Note: Sharing one copy between two of us; we take turns to defuse and give instructions! =)

What can I say more about that game except that it's fun to play with friends and that it's stressful. You should try it, just. Play it.

The closer you are to the person you're playing with, the easier, and probably more fun, this game will be. Inside jokes and things of that nature will definitely come into play to make some of the things in the guide easier to translate to your partner.

Public Review on behalf of the Opium Pulses Steam group

Few words about the game
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a game where you're playing the role of the sapper in a closed room, alone with a bomb. Your only hope lies in your friends, who are in possession of the manual how to defuse it. But there's one catch - they're unable to see it, so you better prepare your throat to talk a lot. A lot and quickly!

Advantages
  • Awesomely fun concept that will keep you entertained for hours
  • Nice, pleasant to the eye, 'soft' graphics
  • I've actually learned most of the morse code so I can pretty much say it's educative!
  • Easy to navigate menu
  • Bomb manual is nicely and clearly written (with projects in multiple languages!)
  • Game is not hardware-demanding at all so it can be easily run on most of the PCs
  • Bomb and its modules are randomly composed, which only boosts the replayability
  • Easy controls that requires only the mouse

Disadvantages
  • Even though bomb is random every time, instructions are not. They should be renewed and changed every now and then

Summary
This game is simply amazing! I've had a ton of fun playing it with a few of my friends (as a defuser and a manual crew) and we're still not bored of it, even better - we really want to play more and get better at it! The only thing that kinda slows us down is the fact that after a while of playing, you simply start to remember rules of defusing yourself and it's not a problem for defuser to defuse few modules even without any use of manual - that's why in my opinion it should be changed from time to time, even a little bit. But except that, I have literally nothing to complain about, this game is surprisingly thought through. Difficulty of bombs throughout the levels is nicely aligned, so there's no "gap" that would stop people from finishing it. Literally one of the best co-op games I've ever played! It should be perfect for a drinking game with friends at home *wink wink*

Personal score
9 / 10

Never have i been so agitated because someone droped a piece of paper onto the floor.
Never have i been so relieved after pressing a button.
Never have i been so flustered at someone who cant speak a language i can speak.
Never have i been so stressed at trying to solve a puzzle.
Never have i been so glad to pay 15 bucks for a game.

10/10, would purchase nervous breakdown inducer again.

I knew the basic concept of the game when purchasing, but had no clue how much fun it would be. This game is sheer panic and excitement. Communication is key, and some basic understanding of the manual is required before things really get going. If you can get your friends to sit down and try it out, it will be hard to put it down. Oculus Rfit DK2 support is nice too!
