Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Adds Motion Controller Support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive

Ever since virtual reality (VR) came back into the consumer sphere the industry has been pushing to allay fears that its anti social. An early example of this came from Steel Crate Games in the form of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, launched initially on Samsung Gear VR. The studio then expanded support to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but for Vive owners especially the title offered no motion controller support. Today that’s now been rectified.

For Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes first update of 2017, players can now use the Oculus Touch controllers or HTC Vive’s standard controllers when playing the bomb diffusing video game. This will be a welcome addition for owners of both devices, giving a far more immersive experience.

If you’ve happened to miss out on the team game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, it revolves around one player in VR who’s got a bomb to diffuse, there’s just one problem how to actually do it. Each bomb is made up of several panels, with wires, dials, timers, codes, symbols and more to figure out. To do this players in the real world have a manual explaining how each particular puzzle works, and it’s only through cooperation and teamwork that avoids everything going boom!
