Spin the Bottle's protracted development cycle - ho ho ho - comes to an end in two weeks time, when it finally reaches the Wii U eShop on August 8, priced at $9/€7. KnapNok's' party piece was expected in the spring, but its eccentric mechanics meant quality assurance took way longer than expected - stuff like pushing Wiimote buttons with noses, or blindfolded players searching for controllers ... the usual.
"Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is our attempt to explore these unique possibilities of the Wii U," said KnapNok's Lau Korsgaard. "Players sit in a circle looking at each other doing silly, wacky and embarrassing stuff. This is a game that couldn't have been developed for any other console and we are super excited to see how the audience will receive it."
All of which gives you an idea of how Spin the Bottle plays, as should the suitably quirky new trailer, highlighting how the game focuses attention around the GamePad, and doesn't use the TV at all. As for the exact mechanics ... we've watched the sequence between the 33 and 39 seconds mark over and over, and still have zero idea what's going on.
Not that that's a bad thing, at all.
