KnapNok, the developer behind Spin The Bottle on Wii U, has explained exactly why the amusing game has been delayed. The team say that they won’t make the initial July release date which they are genuinely sorry about. KnapNok says they feel their fans should know a bit about what is going on behind the scenes. Here’s their explanation.
“The game has been done for months now, we are going through the last quality assurance with Nintendo and it has taken way longer than anticipated. One of the problems is that we are doing so much weird stuff with the Wii Remotes, such as pushing buttons with your nose, passing them to each other over your heads and players blindfolded crawling around on the floor trying to find the controller. Each of these things is non-conventional and there are just so many rules and requirements that can go wrong.”
“I can’t really guarantee anything but my best bet is that we will release in mid august. I don’t regret that we are doing all this weird stuff, this is what makes the game great, but the last couple of months have certainly been painful.”
“We are not wasting our time while waiting for the release. We have already started prototyping our next update. There is so much interesting design space to explore of games that makes the players look at each other, communicate with each other or touch each other and we are looking forward to be able to start talking about all this new stuff .”
