For the unaware, Monument Valley is a mobile game from ustwo that follows a protagonist, Ida, through a 3d/2d geometric wonderland which draws heavily from the works of M. C. Escher. It’s also got the 8-bit flavor of classic NES games and a glorious soundtrack & sound effects that recall those same games (think Legend of Zelda).
When I posted a shot of the final screen of the expanded levels on twitter, a friend name-checked Marble Madness and that feels right too. It’s simply a stunning game.
I won’t spoil all of the wonder for you, but I will include a gallery of my final screens. Even as digital art they’re beautiful artifacts.
