Madcap co-op puzzler Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes headed to mobile


Another one for the party game list

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a one-of-a-kind multiplayer puzzle game full of panicked bewilderment and a-ha moments. One player has control over a ticking time bomb; everyone else has to parse and explain how to disarm doodads using intricate rules from a bomb-defusal manual.

Each side has information the other doesn't (the helpers can't see the physical bomb and the bomb holder can't see the rule book), so attention to detail and effective communication are crucial to winning. It's the type of game that only gets better as you develop a weird shorthand with your group. There's also a range of options to make the challenge more (or less) complex, so it stays fresh.

While it has traditionally been a VR-centric experience, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes dropped that requirement with releases on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Next up, the game will offer "fully-featured" mobile versions later this year. You won't need a VR headset to play on iOS or Android.

It's a great rambunctious party game and opening it up to mobile will make setup that much easier.
