Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is one of the most fun VR party style games you can play on your Oculus Go. It is one of the games that many people talk about and one of the games that most people feel you have to give a try if you have an Oculus Go.
VR is seen as a solo experience, but Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes shows that VR can also offer as much fun and excitement as a game like Mario Party can. The idea of the game is very simple. The person with the Oculus Go on their head is trapped in a room, not just any room there is a bomb in this room!
Do not worry though as you are part of a bomb disposal unit….. although you do not have a clue how to disarm the bomb. The good news is that the people you are playing with (you need at least one other person to play Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes) have at their hands the Bomb Defusal Manual. Each person who is playing can look at the manual on their smartphone.
So the person with the Oculus Go will have to give the rest of the team the best description of the bomb they possibly can. Then the rest of the team need to frantically look at their Bomb Defusal Manual to try and find the bomb the Oculus Go player is describing…… and there are a ton of bombs! One bomb might blow up if you cut the blue wire, another if you handle it in the wrong way. There are many different bombs in Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes so you never know what one the game is going to throw your way.
No matter if you are the person in the Oculus Go or if you are the person who is frantically trawling through the Bomb Defusal Manual. This is a game that is so much fun to play. Some of the bombs are very, very sneaky in that you think you have disarmed them before, but the guy in the Oculus Go turns the bomb around and then BAM there is something slightly different and what worked before will just blow it up.
Working together is the key here, but most of the time everyone is shouting over each other and then the guy in the Oculus Go ends up blown to smithereens. You can of course switch in and out so you can take turns disarming the bomb and also using the manual.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes on the surface is such a simple game and there is not a great deal to it. However, it is also one of the best party games you can get on your Oculus Go. Plus the fact you can play this with just one copy of the game and also one Oculus Go makes it even better. If you love VR and want a game that allows you to share it with others, you will struggle to top Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.
It is a blast (horrible pun intended)
One of the best local multiplayer VR games on the GO
You can play with as many people as you can handle shouting at you
It could not be any more fun
It costs under ten bucks
There is no solo player here
You will be sweating buckets by the end of the game
