Affordable Space Adventures preview: pimp my Wii U

Affordable Space Adventures preview: pimp my Wii U

Wii U has been woefully short on games that take full advantage of its GamePad controller. One of the few that does so well is the downloadable party game, Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party from KnapNok Games. With one Wii U title already under their belts, KnapNok is now teaming up with Knytt creator Nifflas to go into orbit with Affordable Space Adventures. Shacknews was given the opportunity to try the flight-based adventure-puzzler at this year's Game Developers Conference and see how much the game utilizes the Wii U GamePad.

Affordable Space Adventures begins with the player taking control of what I can best describe as a space jalopy. It’s a broken-down spaceship that has endured some heavy damage and is stranded on a dangerous planet. The idea is to navigate the handicapped ship to safety and avoid any hazards along the way. As the game progresses, the ship will gradually regain its functions and slowly regenerate its abilities.

Knytt and Spin the Bottle devs collaborate on Affordable Space Adventures for Wii U

Where do Affordable Space Adventures come from? Well, little Timmy, when Knytt creator Nifflas and Spin the Bottle dev KnapNok like each other very much, they get together and make an exploration game controlled by a heads-down display on the Wii U touchscreen. As you might expect with such a special game-baby, it'll probably stay living on Wii U.

Spin the Bottle party game coming to Wii U

Those who have been to an awkward middle school party know that "Spin the Bottle" is a classic party game and cooties propagator. The name (and loosely, the concept) has been co-opted by developer Knapnok Games, which is tailoring it as a Wii U game much more innocent than its roots might imply.
