Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party

During a GDC Europe presentation, KnapNok Games’ Lau Korsgaard reflected on a few different topics including Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party.

Korsgaard feels that the studio succeeded with its Wii U eShop game. However, he did admit that the “Spin the Bottle” name may have been a mistake.

Korsgaard said:

“It has been really hard figuring out how to frame [the game] right. For instance, it hasn’t been received that well in the States … it has been received okay but a lot of people thought it was too naughty. Spin the Bottle in America has all the sexual subtext of people kissing each other, so I don’t think parents would let their children buy this game and play it. So I actually think maybe we shouldn’t have called it Spin the Bottle but just Bumpie’s Party or something like that.”


Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party’s update will be available on February 13, KnapNok Games has confirmed.

Those who previously downloaded the game can receive the update for free. However, Spin the Bottle’s price will increase for $11.99 / €8.99.

The upcoming update offers six new mini-games in total, making use of the GamePad’s features like the camera, gyroscope, face and smile detection, touch screen and thumb sticks.

Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party’s upcoming update has been submitted to Nintendo. KnapNok Games confirmed the news earlier this month, while also noting that the studio hopes to have it ready for release in January.

KnapNok wrote on Twitter:

The new update for Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party is fairly substantial. It’ll add several games, all free for owners of the software.


Rainy Frog formed back in September with two primary goals. First, the company will be assisting others in bringing their western eShop titles to Japan. Rainy Frog also intends to release Japanese games overseas.

The publisher is starting its efforts with the Japanese launch of Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party, which will be renamed “Waiwai! Minna De Challenge”. Whereas the Wii U eShop title was primarily aimed at adults in the west, founder Anthony Byus tells Nintendo Life that the Japanese release will be made “more appealing to the family-orientated Japanese Wii U market”.
