Spin the Bottle brings physical party games to Wii U, claims innocence

Danish developer KnapNok Games is transforming classic make out game Spin the Bottle into a Wii U party game. KnapNok's Spin the Bottle leaves the lip-locking behind, however, for a game promising "collaborative micro challenges" that require players to look at each other, not a television screen, to win.

According to KnapNok, whose creators have worked on experimental multiplayer games like IndieCade selection B.U.T.T.O.N. and Dark Room Sex Game, up to eight players sit around the Wii U GamePad, spin a virtual bottle and are paired off for challenges. Spin the Bottle's collection of games require player coordination, trust, body contact, dancing and flexibility.

Despite the tickling and face-to-face waltzing that appears to be involved, KnapNok promises Spin the Bottle will offer "innocent fun for innocent kids" when it's released for Wii U in spring 2013.

While there's no TV screen invovled, KnapNok and Swedish co-developer Redgrim promise "uber cute graphics," some of which you can preview in the game's teaser trailer.
