Party games that can utilize mobile devices are awesome ones. Nowadays, everyone has a smartphone that they carry with them at all time. When you are free, taking out your phone and play a quick funny game together can be amazingly fun.

One example is Steel Crate Games’ “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes”.

Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes
Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes, previously available for PC, Consoles and Switch.

In the game, one player will take the role of a “Defuser" and must defuse a bomb with wires, codes and solve puzzles. Meanwhile, other players can see instructions to solve such puzzles within the Bomb Manual. However, they're can't actually see the bomb. The catch here is to try and communicate with the Defuser along the way while the time is still running.

Keep Talking was originally a VR game and its PS VR trailer below really depicts what it's all about.

Keep Talking made its way to Nintendo Switch last year after its popularity on consoles and desktop in the form of a VR game. Alongside last year’s release, the game is now coming to Android and iOS as well.

However, one thing that the VR version does very well but can't be recreated on PC or consoles is that having to use a VR headset prevents the others except the Defuser from seeing the bomb, which is what the game is all about. It can still work in other platforms as long as the Defuser tells his friends to look away from the gaming screen but that’s clearly not as appealing as how a party game should be.

Here's how the bomb looks in case you're wondering.

With mobiles and to some extent Switch , it’s easier to play the game without asking the rest to look away. Moreover, only one person needs to own the game while the rest have access to a special website to read the Bomb Defusal Manual. These changes might be the key to attract players as it reduces the unnecessary friction in party games like this.

The official release date is not yet revealed but let’s stay tuned and wait for Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes to arrive on mobiles.
