Drop from the cliff and ride the wind.

Chasing Aurora was a local multiplayer game that released in 2011 with the launch of the Nintendo Wii U.

With the closure of the Nintendo eShop and the end of the console life cycle Chasing Aurora rode into the sunset in March 2023.

Due to the special nature of the Wii U hardware and the dedicated design of Chasing Aurora, the game cannot be brought to other platforms.

Thank you for playing Chasing Aurora. May the dream of flight live on.




"Chasing Aurora, the latest from And Yet It Moves developer Broken Rules, looks like it's really shaping up to be something special."

"... this game is already oozing atmosphere."

- Mike Gnade, IndieGameMagazine

"Unsurprisingly, Chasing Aurora is also a beautiful game and ... it has at least one terrific song in its soundtrack."

- Andrew Webster, The Verge



Chasing Aurora is the sophomore game by Broken Rules and is set in the same universe as Secrets of Raetikon.

The soundtrack for Chasing Aurora was created by Austrian zither player Christof Dienz.
