Defuse a Bomb In This Awesome Co-Op Oculus Rift Game
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
New Oculus Rift game “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes” was on display at PAX recently and it may be one of the coolest game ideas I’ve ever seen. The idea is that both you and your friend work together, one of you reading a bomb disposal manual while the other wears the Oculus Rift. Although this can be done with two Oculus Rifts and an in game bomb manual if you really wanted to.
The whole concept focuses around the movie cliche that you need to disarm the bomb, but have no idea what you’re doing! Do you cut the red wire, the blue wire, no wires! And that is where your partner comes into play. The ten page manual features instructions on how to diffuse many different bomb modules, the tricky part is that the bombs the player sees are randomly generated from multiple modules and the reader cannot see them.
You need to describe which modules you can see, while the reader tries to sift through the text for each module to find which bits apply to your bomb and which bits are garbage. Work your way through the first module successfully and you can progress to the next, either that or you’ll be blown up.
The modules are pretty straight forward, a screwed on panel, a collection of wires, a combination lock, or even just a big button that says “push”, but working out what to do with each one will require a lot of team work.
The team as still working hard on the game and say that they’ll launch it officially once the consumer model of the Rift is available.
