Spin The Bottle Wii U Wins The IndieCade Technology Award

spin the bottle

The Wii U eShop game Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party has just been awarded the Technology award at the Red Carpet Awards at the International Independent Games Festival IndieCade in Culver City, Los Angeles. The technology award “honors bold and unexpected experiments with the affordances of the medium that transform technology to magic.”

“Our goal from the very beginning has been to design a game specifically to the new Wii U technology and hardware. The GamePad and the Wii Remotes makes games possible where the players look at each other, not the TV. Interesting technology to us, is not a question about performance and polygons, but about how this technology shape human interactions and the Wii U gives possibilities you don’t see anywhere else in gaming today.” Says Dajana Dimovska, Producer on Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party

Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party is at display during the IndieCade festival and the developers have brought new minigames from their upcoming update. The new update will explore the technology of the Wii U even further by focusing on silly and awkward gameplay around the inbuilt camera in the GamePad.

      1. Idk, I’d normally skip this, but my group of friends is growing and they may find it cool. Heck, I may find it cool- its something different, which also makes me wanna support it.

    1. The Wii U is getting 3rd party IP’s that never touched the Wii. That means the 3rd party situation is improving.
      ^All facts, btw…

      1. I love you. Hard. Not as much as the movie though!

        And no, I won’t be naming those devs, but kudos to you!

      2. I wouldn’t call it “support”, but Ubisoft sloppily port their games to the Wii U…

        Come to think of it Rayman Legends and ZombiU were actually developed for Wii U. Zombi U does have the trademark Ubisoft frame rate issues though…

      3. Maybe if you’re blind it doesn’t, but it’s more to do with Ubisoft than the system. Splinter Cell has issues on all three platforms, in fact the frame rates are even worse on PS3 and 360, they also have screen tear problems.

        Gaming is not exactly a smooth ride with Ubisoft… Rayman Is superb though, no complaints there…

      4. I’m gonna get too personal and it’ll be uncomfortable:

      1. You are a new low for this site. One thing is to troll but trolling imitating Zaire next gen 720 is just pathetic not even Xbox fanboys want anything to do with him.
