Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party getting GamePad camera-based DLC

Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is ready to keep the festivities going with an upcoming update that will offer six new mini-games, all utilizing the Wii U GamePad's camera.


Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party released on the Wii U eShop in August and brought with it a unique mix of physical games that utilized the Wii U GamePad and Wii Remotes. But the party won't end there. Knapnok Games co-founder Dajana Dimovska revealed at IndieCade that there are more mini-games coming to Bumpie's Party and that this DLC will use another one of the Wii U's console-specific features: the GamePad camera.

"We have a camera team and they're all about the camera on the GamePad," Dimovska told Shacknews. "We keep thinking of how to get some of the other features of the Wii U in, so one of the things that we are doing is using the camera to take pictures while you are playing mini-games."

Dimovska named one example, a mini-game called "Don't Laugh." The objective would be for a player to stare at the Wii U GamePad's camera and keep a straight face, while everyone else would try and make the player laugh. Five other games will be included in the upcoming DLC update, many of which similarly utilize the GamePad's camera. A Eurogamer post has revealed the remaining games as Body Twiste, Act Like An Animal, Footie Ball, Put Your Hat On, and Nature Photographers.

Dimovska hopes to have this latest update for Spin The Bottle: Bumpie's Party ready before Christmas. A price was not revealed, but existing owners of Bumpie's Party will receive the DLC at no extra charge.
