Those of us who have come and gone from the days of grade school will remember the awkward “Spin the Bottle” game from parties. Now you can relieve that weirdness in the comfort of your own home. Knapnok Games is developing a Wii U game, by the same name, but this time around the game is much more innocent.
Knapnok designer, Lau Korsgaard told Joystiq how the game was inspired by the Wii U’s GamePad:
The idea behind Spin the Bottle was definitely inspired by the hardware of the Wii U, I have over the last few years worked on lots of party game prototypes, such as Dark Room Sex Game and Monkey See Monkey Mime, where the players look at each other, not the screen. The problem is that these ideas have been really hard to distribute commercially – until the Wii U.
The Wii U has another potential, Players can turn off the TV, sit in a circle with the GamePad between them and use the Wiimotes to interact with the game. They choose where to sit and whom to look at.
This sounds like one of those odd games you come across late at night and pass over quickly. Perhaps it could bring some fun if you are a younger gamer who hasn’t graduated from school yet. Korsgaard has said that the game will be clean and safe for parents to allow their children to play.
