13 th February 2014: Platform-adventure fans will be able to grab crazy mind-reading game Stick It To The Man on Wii U this Spring. Developed by the creative minds at Zoink! and published by Ripstone, with dialogue by Ryan North (creator of Dinosaur Comics and writer of Adventure Time comic); Stick It To The Man continues to receive critical acclaim after its launch last year on PlayStation®3, PS Vita & PC; since then Nintendo fans have been sticking thoughts in the teams minds for a Wii U version of the game - which they could not ignore!

Stick It To The Man will have you exploring a world made of paper and stickers; helping Ray who has just woken up from a bizarre accident with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain. This gives him awesome powers and he can suddenly change the world around him by folding it, tearing it, pulling stickers off and sticking them elsewhere! And if that weren't enough, Ray can also read people’s minds! Digging into the brains of his fellow citizens, Ray can hear their thoughts and use that to his advantage. Unfortunately, Ray doesn't have much time to get to grips with his new abilities. He is framed by ‘The Man’ with a crime he didn’t commit, and is on the run. Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation?

Stick It To The Man has been optimised for Wii U and features a unique & innovative way of using the GamePad to mindread characters in the game further separating the mindreading world from Ray’s world. Creating a cool way to play the game especially for Nintendo fans – check out the team at Zoink showing off this awesome new feature.

Stick It To The Man is set for release this Spring; pricing and specific date details will be released in due course. Press kit can be accessed here.
