Monument Valley is a surreal exploration through fantastical architecture and impossible geometry. The player guides the silent princess Ida through mysterious monuments, to uncover hidden paths, unfold optical illusions and outsmart the enigmatic Crow People.
Following the success of Monument Valley came a completely new story set in the same fantastical universe. Monument Valley 2 tells the tale of a mother and child as they embark on a journey of discovery. The game allows the player to assist Ro as she teaches her child about the mysteries of the valley, exploring stunning environments and manipulating architecture to guide them on their way.
The Monument Valley series has changed the gaming landscape on mobile and has helped encourage creators to make something that is short, poetic and beautiful. A new generation of gamers are influenced by this success, and are experiencing these new, exciting and perfectly formed stories and experiences for the first time.
