The asynchronous bomb defusal party game, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes just released on Steam and Humble Store.

The game garnered a lot of attention for its innovative use of the Oculus Rift VR headset. One player wears the device in a virtual environment with a ticking time bomb. Meanwhile other players get a complicated bomb defusal manual (free to download) to use to guide the Oculus-wearing player through the process. One only needs to take a quick look at the bomb defusal guide to see that the communication of all of these ideas gets very confusing very quickly.

Fortunately, the game does not require the use of a VR headset and can be played on any computer with others unable to see the screen. Players can use a game controller when defusing the bomb. Similarly, the game’s design is well-suited for online play or even over the phone.

You can purchase Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes on Steam or on Humble Store for $14.99 (the release sale price of $12.99 ends on October 15).
