According to an interview in the..

Hands-On With Eternity's Child

Eternity's Child has traveled a long and troubled road to get to where it currently resides as an upcoming Nintendo WiiWare release.

World of Goo - New info and screenshots

I recently caught up with the guys from 2D Boy, the creators of World of Goo, which is one of the more interesting and original games coming to WiiWare to see how it was all going.

Anyway, we are all interested to know when we can expect to see this promising game on WiiWare. Sadly the answer is not for a little while yet. Their aim is to finish development on the Wor..
