  • Summary: In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: theIn Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: the Experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast. Rounds are fast-paced, tense, occasionally silly, and almost always loud. Puzzle solving and communication skills – and maybe a few friendships – will be put to the test as players race to defuse bombs while communicating quickly, clearly, and effectively. Expand

    It’s an interesting, tension-filled take on puzzle games, and that’s true however many people are playing it with you.

    Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a great fit on the Nintendo Switch. The portable nature of the game makes it easy to use at a party or game night, while the game's tense nature and challenging, randomized puzzles offers plenty of exciting fun for those willing to learn the game's ins and outs. At 15 bucks, there aren't much better party games you can get than Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.

    Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a perfect party game, provided your party likes a bit of stress every now and then. The puzzles are deviously fun, and the many permutations for each bomb mean that it'll take quite some time before repetition sets in. The game setup is also brilliant, and it makes the Switch's configuration one of the more sensible ways to play the title. As long as you have a bunch of people who aren't shy about barking loads of information to one another, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a nice addition to your party game lineup.

    Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is the most unique co-op game I’ve ever played, but it’s also a brilliant idea that is well executed, and it suits the Nintendo Switch particularly well.

    Not much has changed since Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes came out in 2015 and that's mostly a good thing. Whether you're playing through the campaign mode or prefer taking on your very own bombs in Free Play mode, it'll keep you on your toes. There's no major need to pick it up if you've got the game on another platform already, but at such a low price it's hard not to recommend it to liven up social gatherings.

    A local multiplayer game that crosses the limits of the console by forcing us to play with a friend who tells us how to deactivate the bombs with a manual. A lot of tension created by the link between the players that makes them go to the limit.
