Steam Leaderboards Added!

Have you ever wondered how your bomb defusal times compare to the rest of the world’s? Now you can find out – Steam Leaderboards are now available in Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes!

You can view a leaderboard when you’re online by opening the Bombs Binder to any mission that you have successfully defused.

Your rank will be shown relative to all other players as a percent. A rank of “Top 5%” means that only 5% of players have managed to achieve a time as great as yours. If you’re only in the top 95%, that means you have lots of room for improvement!

The Steam Leaderboards for all built-in missions can also be found in the Steam Community here. You will need to launch the game with this update before your scores will be visible. Leaderboards for Steam Workshop mission packs can only be viewed in game.

Happy defusing!

Version 1.4.1 Update Notes:
  • Added Leaderboards
  • Improved selection volumes for motion controls
  • Automatically return dropped items to their start positions after 5 seconds

Motion Control Support Added!

Update 1.3 is here and it brings with it the oft-requested support for motion controls! Both HTC Vive and Oculus Touch motion controllers are now supported throughout the game.

Most mods should be compatible with this update, but be sure to contact the mod author through their workshop page to bring any issues to their attention.

Please note that switching between motion controls and gamepad will require re-launching the game.

Official update discussion thread


Version 1.3.0 Update Notes:
  • Motion control support added (HTC Vive and Oculus Touch).
  • Fixed issue where presence of Oculus Remote would prevent gamepads from working.
  • Fixed v-sync not working in OS X (in previous update, but forgot to include in notes).
  • Fixed issue where the last digit of the serial number could never be ‘9’.

We also just pushed small set of motion control fixes:

Version 1.3.1 Update Notes (Windows only):
  • Fixed issue where missions could incorrectly display as locked for one round
  • Fixed issue where post-game binder could become detached from hand
  • Removed colliders from binder and dossier covers to alleviate unintuitive interactions
  • Tweaked Vive controller interaction position
  • Tweaked post-game lighting when using motion controls to be more consistently visible

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.
  • Mod support! Try out new modules, missions, and more from the community with Steam Workshop!

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