Put on your best smile
Developer KnapNok Games has confirmed that its upcoming update for Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party will include six new mini-games that revolve around the Wii U GamePad's camera.
Due shortly before Christmas, the fresh content promises to use many of the Wii U's bespoke features — such as the gyro, camera, facial and smile detection — in new and exciting ways. Speaking to Eurogamer earlier today, the game's producer, Dajana Dimovska, revealed some specific details regarding this:
For example, one new mini-game will be called "Don't Laugh." The title is pretty self-explanatory. Two players stand next to each other, keeping their faces within the range of the GamePad's viewfinder. The audience will do whatever they can to try to get the players to smile or laugh, thus causing them to lose the game. "What is really great is that we take pictures with the GamePad while all this is going on. So after a minigame, you get to enjoy pictures of yourself looking silly. Oh and these pictures will of course also be saved in a gallery so you can laugh at them later.
Another mini-game called "Act Like an Animal", sees players imitating animals that appear on the GamePad screen, while another player guesses what it is. Those of you that really enjoy looking silly can experience "Put Your Hat On", in which you must line up a virtual hat with your head while looking at the Wii U GamePad camera.
The update will be free for existing players of the game, whereas those who purchase it after the update will have to pay a bit more. Unfortunately, this price point has not yet been determined by KnapNok Games.
