Linux Version Now Available

Good news! Now you'll be able to play Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes on Linux and SteamOS!



The Linux version doesn't support VR but it has all of the other game features including mod support through the Steam Workshop.

Please keep in mind that we are a small team with limited Linux knowledge. We've tested the game in Ubuntu 16.04 and SteamOS. If you are using a different distribution or have an uncommon configuration, you will probably need to rely on the Linux community for support.

Huge thanks to everybody supporting the game and special thanks to the people who helped to test the Linux beta!

About This Game

In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a 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 deciphering information from the manual.

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 – 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 – Bomb defusing is a team endeavor. Going solo is not an option!
  • 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 new community-made modules, missions, and more from the Steam Workshop!
  • VR Supported – Enter an unmatched immersive experience, isolated from your Experts. Swap out between rounds and share the experience with your friends!

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.
