Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Review
Posted: 19 months ago, last updated 5 weeks ago.
Played with a parent at the bomb controls and children consulting the manual on how to defuse it, this creates a reversal of power. Suddenly the ones with the knowledge, children must develop ways of communicating the right information clearly. This can start with some frustration, as they want parents to somehow automatically know what to do. But over time they learn to listen carefully to the bomb defuser’s description of the bomb and then find the right answers in the manual to help the parent or carer progress.
With an optional VR mode, the game gets even more immersive for the defuser player which makes it exciting to take turns wearing the headset.
