Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes - Steel Crate Games
Did you know that Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is now available in Dutch, Esperanto, Polish, Romanian, Spanish, and Turkish? It's true! And it's all thanks to our wonderful community. Go give them a “thanks!” on our Discord server!

We'd like to bring the game to even more languages, but we need some help. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a game all about communication so language is key, and nobody knows how the game is meant to be played better than our own players.

We're currently looking for translators to help localize the game into:
  • Arabic
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Korean
  • Thai
  • Ukrainian

These languages are almost done, but you can join us in Discord to give your feedback on them now:
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Norwegian
  • Portuguese (pt-BR)
  • Portuguese (pt-PT)
  • Russian
  • Swedish

Want to help out?
Head over to our Discord server and check out the #localization channel and read the pinned post. You'll find instructions for how to sign up and can discuss with other translators in the community.

How to switch languages:


OK, so I know Eurogamer's actual birthday was two days ago, but as is our style, the Eurogamer video team is once again Late to the (birthday) Party.

Over the past three years, we've been introducing each other to our favourite (and/or least favourite) games from yesteryear as part of our Late to the Party series. During that time we've shared our love (and/or hatred) for over one hundred and fifty different games and thanks to this, we've been able to make a compilation episode of LTTP that features one game from every year that Eurogamer has been alive.

In this video, Aoife, Zoe and I are joined by some friendly video team faces from the past (who?!) as we play our way through the 20 years worth of games, including 1999's Dino Crisis, 2006's Gears of War and 2017's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Basically, if you want a healthy dose of nostalgia (or just want to feel rather old) this is the video for you!

Hey everybody!

Super quick update: we've enabled Windows 64-bit support by default, so you might see a small update being downloaded. This allows players who download lots of mods (like, lots of mods) to use more memory and have more mods active at once.

If you use Windows 32-bit, no worries! You'll still get the 32-bit version.

Sometimes you need a hand to hold, so we ve updated our list of the 25 best co-op games to play on PC with a headset-wearing friend or a muted stranger.

Everything’s better with a pal or two in tow, from collaborative puzzle solving to sublime double stealth takedowns. Equally sublime are when those takedowns go awry, your partner shrieks in panic and all hands are needed on deck to clear up the mess. Whether local or online, co-op games offer some of the best fun you can have in 2018.

While Humble may offer a lot of bundles now, their Humble Indie Bundles are what first put the site on the map. Their 19th went live last night, offering their usual broad and colourful cross-section of what the indie development scene has to offer.

Featuring space adventure, train-based puzzling, VR bomb defusal and one of the most existentially unsettling horror games ever made, this bundle has a little something for everybody, assuming you’re not a huge dork like me that automatically buys everything halfway interesting that crosses your path and already owns two thirds of these.

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!
