The Weirdest Multiplayer Experience Just Got Weirder
Multiplayer games are a bigger business and ever, and for good reason; now that the internet is more common than ever before, a multiplayer game means that a developer can make a lot of money, as it requires more people to purchase the game – especially if they’re looking to play with friends. Many of the bestselling games of the 21st century have either been multiplayer focused or had a substantial multiplayer component, so it’s clear that gaming’s become a more social activity than ever before.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes does things a little differently; each game has one player dropped into a room with a ticking time bomb, while their friends take the place of the Masterminds, helping their friends diffuse it; the fun part is that the masterminds can’t actually see the bomb, relying purely on what the diffuser says to guide them in their task. Procedurally generated puzzles mean that you can’t just memorize certain tactics, like cutting the red wire – every game comes with a new bomb to diffuse and a new challenge that’ll put your communication skills to the test.
Given that the game has such a focus on communication, it’s only natural that it’s gotten a bulky language update, now being available in a whopping 26 new languages: Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese-Brazil, Portuguese-Portugal, Romanian, Russian, Simplified-Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, Ukrainian. This means that players from all over the world can enjoy the game without having to worry about a language barrier, especially when it comes to using the bomb defusal-manual found online.
The update is available on the Oculus Quest, Oculus Quest 2, Oculus Rift, Steam, and Humble Bundle.
