At that place is one VR game I’ve played that has captivated me since the 2d I heard about it, “Continue Talking and Nobody Explodes”. The bomb defusing game has been a hit on every mod VR platform and sees two people really share in a VR experience. The basic concept is simple, one person in VR tin see a bomb, at to the lowest degree i person out of VR has a transmission and working together you lot have to defuse the bomb before it explodes.
It’s a game of communication, logic and comprehension, in short, it’south a thinking person game and I absolutely love it. Warning, just like Pictionary this game has the potential to cause marital disharmony, yous’ve been warned.
The VR Side
Within the VR headset, y’all’re presented with a suitcase size and shaped boom box. The bomb has space for 12 “modules”, each requiring various defusing requirements and complexities. It also has various other “greebles” including series numbers, batteries, and various indicators that can alter the steps required.
Your chore equally the VR actor is to accurately describe what you’re seeing and relay that to your partner/s. You’ll need to both conceptualize what information they will need next, through learning the mechanics of each panel type and be able to follow their instructions for disabling each panel.
Using the Fantasize controller interacting with the bomb is simple. The game takes reward of positional tracking clicking and swiping on the touchpad, once you’re used to information technology y’all can navigate around the bomb with easy. From a motion sickness perspective because y’all’re not moving through space I found I got little to no effects even after long periods playing, and I’m susceptible to VR sickness. This coupled with a turn about turn play manner nausea should not come a knocking while playing.
The Transmission Side
This is actually my preferred role in the game, this is where the existent thinking happens. As the bomb proficient, yous accept to place the ‘puzzle’ to defuse each panel and then walk the VR player through a set of comprehension based assessments of that panel. Once you’ve decided the panel, you and so have to walk then through the deactivation, it can be every bit simple as cut the 3rd wire and the complexity grows, a lot.
You also demand to exist able to talk the VR player through giving you the correct information, depending on your play partner this tin exist a little frustrating. To be good with the manual, you demand both a logical heed and good comprehension skills, in fact, I think that this game could well exist a bang-up tool for educational activity both of those skills.
Overall this is the best VR experience I have had, bar none. Even though the graphics may be low res, the complexity of the game may not await to be all that heady the gameplay is zippo short of captivating and exciting. At present, that’south with a good partner, play with a drongo and you lot’ll spend one-half your time in VR listen to someone re-read the aforementioned basic instructions or half your time in the manual with someone shouting I don’t run into whatsoever picayune lights.
The only trouble with the game is it needs 2 people, and if you don’t take a good play partner available you lot’re going to exist out of luck. If I had more time I’d seriously consider programming a Google Domicile Action to play with me.
If you’ve got a Daydream-certified phone and a Daydream View headset then I tin’t recommend this game highly enough. At $12.99 AUD some may consider information technology besides expensive but this has more to practise with our perceptions of what mobile apps should price and less to practice with the value of a great game like this.
