'Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes' recently released on October 8 has taken the Internet by storm, as a viral video has been uploaded showcasing intensity, teamwork, and a hardcore bomb defuse.
For those that may not know, 'Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes' is a game where one player is prompted to defuse a virtual bomb before it explodes. He or she does so by disconnecting wires, solving puzzles, figuring out number sequences and much more. Each bomb is different, so the modules that must be disables varies in difficulty and frequency.
What's more is that this game requires more than just one person to play, however, there's only one actually running the software. As one player is presented with a virtual bomb to on their monitors, others are rapidly scanning the bomb defuse manual in order to instruct the defuser.
That's right, the "experts" have to instruct the defuser who does not own a manual and can only describe what he sees to the "experts" he or she is playing with. The defuser needs to accurately describe what he or she is looking at down to the most minor detail because "strikes" or errors when disabling modules can cause the bomb to explode.
This new and innovative game goes hand in hand with VOIP software, which many groups of gamers take advantage of to communicate while they interact and play online game with each other.
Good communication skills and much trial and error is needed to successfully pass each bomb or level. The manual involves a series of logic, word, and number puzzles which keeps the "experts" on their toes. The defuser on the other hand has to manage the bomb in a timely fashion and choose which modules needs the most attention and when.
Even the slightest detail in this game can affect whether or not the virtual bomb will explode. Take for example this viral video that has recently been uploaded online. The video showcases a very difficult bomb, and one group's intense attempt at defusing it.
