Ubisoft's Unreleased Shovelware Revealed for Wii U

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Tue Feb 10, 2015 6:21 pm

Ubisoft's unreleased shovelware has been revealed thanks to Unseen64, it's been "finished for over a year" for Wii U.

- Know Your Friends is a Wii U party game from Ubisoft
- It has been finished for an entire year
- Was developed by Ubisoft Montreal over the course of 2013, wrapping development in early 2014
- A quirky party/quiz game that features local and online multiplayer
- Wii U exclusive was focused on using the Wii U GamePad in interesting ways, mostly playing on social interactions
- One question has each player arrange one another on the GamePad based on who is most likely to invite the others over for dinner
- Features a goofy papercraft art style that is akin to Monty Python's Flying Circus
- Each player is represented by a 2D papercraft person that, thanks to the Wii U GamePad's camera, has their face mapped to the in-game character

Wow Ubisoft...first of all, not releasing a game that's been finished for over a year? This obviously wasn't going to appeal to ANY Wii U owners, as I'd hope they'd all know better than to play something like this. It looks like a terrible mess, as per usual with Ubisoft now. If they can't put the effort to make the new Assassin's Creed, a game in their biggest franchise, good and not a buggy mess, they sure as hell wouldn't have been able to make this good.

I also can't believe they'd wait to release it until "the Wii U install base is higher." Nobody would buy a Wii U for this. But even so, if it's finished there's no reason at all not to release it.

If I were to choose a party game to play on Wii U, although I don't plan to get any, I would MUCH prefer to wait for Mario Party 10, which looks like effort was at least put into it. >_>

I wouldn't buy it, but I mean, if they finished it, why wouldn't they release it?
That's just stupid, make a game, not release it.

No loss there and the game looks more like something a small indie team would make.
