During the Global Game Jam 2014, Ben [Kane], Allen [Pestaluky], and Brian [Fetter] teamed up to make a small game about defusing a bomb in virtual reality. While it was just a 48 hour prototype, the resulting video garnered a hugely positive reaction from gamers and press. Spurred on by the hype, the team decided the concept was worth pursuing full time and put together a plan to make "Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes" a full-fledged title. To make things nice and official, the company was needed and thus Steel Crate Games was born.
