Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Is a PlayStation VR Launch Game

Previewed by us back in December 2014, bomb defusing game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes will be available digitally on October 13 for PlayStation VR, developer Steel Crate Games announced today. Since PlayStation Move controllers aren’t supported, each player only needs to have a DualShock 4.

In the game, one player is trapped in a room with a time bomb they must defuse. The other players, the Experts, must then give instructions on how to defuse the bomb by looking in the bomb defusal manual. Asked how Keep Talking works on PSVR, Steel Crate said, “The social screen shows the manual, so it’s how the Experts help out the Defuser in VR. Only the VR player can see the bomb.”

The PSVR version of Keep Talking will use the same Bomb Defusal Manual as PC.

Here’s the full description for Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes as it appears on Steam:

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.

The PC version of Keep Talking, priced at $14.99 USD on Steam, supports VR, but it isn’t required. Steel Crate didn’t say if the PSVR version will support non-VR play on PS4 at launch.
