The highly anticipated puzzle platformer for WiiWare, And Yet It Moves, officially receives a launch date of August 23, 2010, and pricing of 1,000 Wii Points. Indie studio Broken Rules brings the award-winning downloadable PC game experience to the living room, introducing all new levels and game controls using the Wii Remote that will have players physically rotating environments to overcome various obstacles and challenges.

And Yet It Moves is a physics-based platform game in which players rotate the world at will to solve challenging puzzles. A tilt of the Wii Remote also tilts the world, turning walls into floors, slides into platforms, and stacks of rocks into dangerous hazards when flipped upside down.
