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."

Act Like An Animal at IndieCade 2013 IndieCade 2013 Technology Award Don't Laugh at IndieCade 2013

"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.
