24 th April 2014: The awesomely talented devs at Zoink! Games and Indie Publisher Ripstone have announced today that the eccentric and totally hilarious psychic platform-adventure game; Stick It To The Man! will be making its Wii U eShop debut next week! The game will be launching on both sides of the pond simultaneously on 1 st May priced at £6.99 / €7.99 / $9.99.

Stick It To The Man! centres around hardhat tester; Ray Doewood – who has a bizarre accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain! Standard stuff really. This absurd fluorescent arm (which is invisible to others) gives Ray awesome powers, allowing him to hear people’s thoughts and change the crazy paper world around him with stickers! Digging in the brains of his fellow citizens – including the likes of Santa Claus, a Pregnant General and Elvis (to name but a few); it’s up to Ray to gather clues from countless insane characters and solve mind-boggling puzzles – all while trying to escape the evil clutches of The Man! Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation?

Those fun-loving Zoinkers have been beavering away to create a cool and completely new way to play Stick It To The Man! just for Nintendo fans! The Wii U version features a totally unique way of using the GamePad to mindread characters – further separating the mind reading world from Ray’s world.

Can’t wait a whole week to Stick It To The Man! on Wii U? Well fear not! In the meantime you can check out the awesome Wii U Teaser Trailer, demonstrating this amazing new feature: http://buff.ly/1mzqm6D
