The bomb defense game Keep talking and nobody explodes – one of the coolest games first developed for virtual reality – will be launched on August 1 for iOS and Android phones and tablets for $ 9.99. Just like on other platforms, Keep talking is a cooperative board game in which a person tries to disarm a procedurally generated bomb covered in mysterious threads and buttons, and the other players talk them through the process using a digital or printed manual.
Developer Steel Crate Games announced in March Which Keep talking would come to phones and tablets, albeit without a launch date. You can already find the game on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch, as well as on any major VR headset. (It was initially launched on the Samsung Gear VR in 2015.) The mobile version promises the same basic gameplay and functions, but with a mobile interface, and the developers also claim that you can take it anywhere and easily hide the bomb screen .
In general, Keep talking looks a bit like the cooperative technobabble game Space team. Although there is still a lot of shouting, there is also a lot of methodical figuring out what is actually on the bomb, and mobile devices (next to the switch) are an obvious place for it.
