Yes, the Wii U eShop is seriously getting a Wii U eShop game. KnapNok Games will be releasing the title in Spring 2013.

An overview of Spin the Bottle is posted below.


Spin the Bottle is a party game for Wii U supporting up to 8 players. The game pushes the players’ attention away from the screen and onto each other with a series of collaborative micro challenges where players have to look at each other in order to win. The players sit in a circle around the Wii U Game Pad and spin a virtual bottle in order to pair up two random players to take a challenge. The challenges are carried out with Wii Remotes and might involve tight coordination, daring trust, body contact or extreme flexibility.


The people behind KnapNok Games have since 2008 been part of Copenhagen Game Collective and developed experimental party games such as Dark Room Sex Game (an awkward no-graphics erotic rhythm game) and B.U.T.T.O.N. (a roughhouse game about pushing buttons and cheating. The fact that Nintendo’s Wii U console is the first console which let you play with turned off TV screen makes it an obvious platform for a party game where players look at each other rather than the screen. KnapNok Games naturally decided to embrace this opportunity and design a party game for the young and the adault audince. KnapNok Games teamed up with Swedish indie studio Redgrim. When Redgrim’s artist, Simon Gustafsson, is not re-watching his collection of “Two and a Half Men”* he cranks out amazing graphics designs. *See additional link
