PS VR Games
Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes is a new social game that released on Steam last year, and has made its way to PlayStation VR. In this experience, the user wearing the VR helmet must defuse a bomb, which the other players can’t see. He has to describe what he sees and be precise enough so the other players can find the requested information in the set time limit.
Before going any further, we thought that this game made use of the VR helmet in a clever way, and is definitively one of the most original VR games out there! Learn more in our Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes double-review!

A few weeks later, we had completely embraced VR as the future for our studio! We had always made 2d games in the past, so learning 3d was a massive challenge for the studio.
