Mod Update and Second Screen Manual Improvements

Update 1.2.8 is now live.

Workshop Updates:

There are now more than 70 mods in the Workshop. That's about one new mod per day since we introduced mod support in August!

If you were to install all of the new mods the combined manual would be over 120 pages!

If you haven't had a chance to check out mods yet you can find them in the workshop.

To keep this momentum going we've made some changes to give mod creators more options including:

- Support for looping sounds and multiple sound variants
- Ability to get lights out and alarm clock events
- Better handling for gamepad controls
- Support for more than 50 subscribed mods

We've also made it easier for players to find the combined manual with mod pages and adjust mod settings with links in the menu dossier.

Updated Second Screen For VR

When playing the game with a VR headset you can display the manual on your monitor and control it with a second controller or the keyboard.

This update brings a lot of changes to the look and feel of this manual to make it even easier to get started.

Other Changes

- Changed wire sequence to make the wires larger and easier to interact with
- Updated VR utilities for Oculus and Steam VR

Note that while we've done what we can to make the workshop update process as smooth as possible there may be a few mod incompatibilities including slower mod loading speeds until creators have rebuilt with Unity 5.4.

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.


  • 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 and can be printed or viewed on a tablet or any other web-enabled device.
