Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party gets new mini-games on February 13

Knapnok Games is ready to release their free update for Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party on February 13. If you don't own the game yet, get it now, because that day will also see the game's price get bumped up by $3.


Indie developer Knapnok Games has completed work on a new update for Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party. The unique physical party game for Wii U is set to add a fresh batch of new mini-games on February 13, free to current owners of the game. And as promised at IndieCade, these new challenges will utilize the GamePad's camera.

A photo update on the game's Facebook page indicates that the six mini-games will also utilize the GamePad's gyroscope, face and smile detection, touch screen, and control sticks. These are the games you'll be playing:

  • Act like an Animal - The GamePad shows the picture of an animal. One player must mimic the animal, while that player's partner will have to guess the animal.

  • Put your Hat on - The GamePad camera searches the room for virtual hats placed in the air. The player must position themselves underneath the virual hat, as their partner grabs a picture.

  • Footie Ball - Just as it sounds, kick a ball with the aid of the GamePad.

  • Don't Laugh - Two players play against the audience, as they must look into the camera and avoid laughing. If the audience makes the players laugh, the camera will detect it and take a picture.

  • Body Twister - A classic game of Twister using the GamePad touch screen.

  • Nature Photographer - Two players hold the GamePad simultaneously, shoulder-to-shoulder. They must coordinate to search for a butterfly in the room and snap a picture.

The update will also feature additions that allow players to toggle how much is shown on the television screen, as well as some bug fixes. Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is available now for $8.99 on the Nintendo eShop, but the price will increase to $11.99 once the update arrives on February 13.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
