This game is a perfect representation of VR mixed with innovative gameplay. Similar to multiplayer party games on the Wii U , One person having full control and a screen hidden by someone else makes for incredibly interesting gameplay. MY ONE COMPLAINT : The view is simply way too close. Compared to other vr games on the Daydream, using the remote feels very different because you feel very close to the device so I kept leaning back and pulling my hands tight to my body which of course doesn't do anything with the Daydream setup. I'd like to have a FOV / Distance slider to push the UI back a bit. Thats all though, amazing title.
Well worth the price. I've been wanting to try it since it released for PC VR, so glad it's on Daydream. It's the perfect game for mobile VR since you can play at the table instead of being tethered to your PC. Being VR really improves the gameplay since at later levels the lights flicker and it really plays with your senses and makes it immersive and adds to the sense of urgency. The puzzles are actually pretty simple, it's more a test of your communications skills and ability to RTFM. Play with your SO at your own risk... it may make or break your relationship :)
Best VR title out there! Well worth the price tag in my opinion. My wife and I have been having a blast (pun intended) with this game. I love the stress of trying to beat the clock. Been bringing this out to all our parties. Only downside is that my Google Pixel overheats pretty quick.
Great VR Very snappy visuals, no lag at all. It can be a bit daunting with a massive manual, so it's definitely challenging. Think Escape rooms but with a bomb and in VR. You gotta be smart and patient and work within a time limit.
One minor gripe is that when you're under the gun and trying to beat the timer, the controls feels a bit slippery when you're sliding your thumb extremely quickly across the directional pad trying to turn the bomb. However, most of the time it works well, especially when you try and move not quite as fast and it is by no means a game breaking issue. I still give it four stars overall for controls. Overall it's a great port and very much worthy of the $10 price tag.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is one of the best games, maybe THE best game for Daydream right now. Download or preferably print the manual, three-hole-punch it, and put it in a binder labeled "Bomb Defusal Manual" for some fun conversations with friends and family! It can sometimes be an exercise in frustration, but that's part of the appeal of this game. The gameplay is timed and you're forced to accept defusal advice from someone who can't see the bomb, which encourages sharp communication. This creates a very tense gameplay experience that is super rewarding when you pull it off as a team (or a group). Seriously, bring this to a party with multiple manuals and everyone can join in on the fun. There are enough difficulty adjustments to keep it interesting no matter how much you've played it and it's only $10! It's $15 on Steam right now for the same game. This is the first game you should buy if you have a Daydream setup.
