And Yet It Moves hit many people's radars with our First Impressions of the title back in February, and it's been a long wait to see when the game would finally be available to download. Now, thanks to an update to Nintendo of America's site, we have a date: August 23rd.

Updated: official PR confirms pricing of 1,000 Points.

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. Experience a new twist on the game that won the 2007 Independent Games Festival Student Showcase, was nominated for the 2007 EUROPRIX Top Talent Award and qualified as a finalist during IndieCade 2008.

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. Players navigate through a paper collage world created with colorful pieces of cardboard and set to distinctive music. With four different environments and multiple unlockable modes, And Yet It Moves will provide gamers with endless challenges.

Key features of the game include:
Advanced Platforming - Players run, jump and must rotate the world to solve puzzles.
A Living World - Creatures such as bats, bees and monkeys populate the game world and react to ever-changing gravity.
20 Levels In Four Different Environments - Mind-bending puzzles set in an extraordinary paper collage world created with colored cardboard, brought to life with handmade sounds and music.
Endless Replayability - Unlockables include bonus levels and competitive play modes: Time Trial, Limited Rotation, Speed Run, and Survival. Additional modifications can be unlocked that can change the entire game.
Multiple Control Options – Play as you wish with 4 different control schemes. Use the motion sensor and Wii Remote pointer, or use the Classic Controller.

You definitely messed up with the release date. North America will get to twist environments like never before on August 23rd.

This version is better than the PC one, because it has bonus levels and 360°-control, instead of the 90°.
The controls work great, too.

Someone mentioned that the PC version only gives you 90 degree control, that's actually inaccurate. Anyhow the demo was fun, think this one's going to be a buy.
