UPDATE: Spin the Bottle's first major content update will be available on 13th February, developer KnapNok confirmed on Facebook.
Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is yet another corridor-heavy third-person shooter with snap-to cover and an apocalyptic storyline. Okay, that's all lies. It's actually a party game that uses the Wii U GamePad while ignoring the television entirely.
The Danish and Swedish motion-based TV-ignoring party game Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is now due on 8th August on the Wii U's eShop where it will cost €6.99 / $8.99.
The Wii U's best drinking game, Spin the Bottle, is going to miss its estimated July release due to Nintendo's very thorough quality assurance process taking much longer than expected.
Over the past few years the PC indie scene has erected a new payment structure wherein people can often buy a work in progress for a cheap price, then slowly gain access to all of its added features at no additional cost. Conversely, they can wait until it's complete and pay the full price later on.
Context matters. Out of context I can say that one of my fondest memories of this past GDC involves giving orders to a blindfolded woman crawling on all fours. Despite what you might think, this transpires on the GDC Play showfloor as part of the Danish and Swedish collaborative experimental Wii U party game, Spin the Bottle, "an innocent game for innocent children."
Update: KnapNok artist Simon Gustafsson has clarified this "sometimes go outside" business by saying, "Yeah, I just wanted people to go outside more. I hope this doesn't cause any confusion" in an e-mail to Eurogamer.
A Wii U game with a name like Spin the Bottle may evoke horrid memories of a certain dreadful adult-themed mini-game collection on Wii, but the Copenhagen-based KnapNok Games in association with Swedish indie studio Redgrim are taking a decidedly different approach with its up to eight-player party game.
