Monument Valley is a surreal puzzle game discovered through amazing architecture and impossible geometry. Guide the silent princess Ida through mysterious monuments, uncovering hidden paths, unfolding optical illusions and outsmarting the enigmatic Crow People.
In Monument Valley, the character princess who plays Ida journeys through an optical illusion maze and impossible objects, called "sacred geometry" in the game, as she journeys to be forgiven for anything else. The game is presented in isometric view, and players interact with the environment to find hidden paths as Ida approaches the map's exit. Each of the ten levels has a different central mechanic. Interactions include moving platforms and pillars and creating bridges. Players are indirectly through the game by design elements such as colors and are directly hugged, blocking the way of Ida. The game includes a camera mode in which players can roam by level to compose screenshots.
We saw opportunities to deliver novelty and delight. A game offering enticing mechanics to new and experienced players, with no grind; but also no real failure: no stars to collect, and no leaderboards to climb.
A departure from endless gaming experiences of freemium titles, our ambition for Monument Valley has always been to allow players the opportunity to complete an entire game on Mobile, and to experience a piece of interactive digital entertainment through from start to finish.
Monument Valley in addition to creative play also owns in itself a true graphic work of the virtual world. There, where Ida walked through is not hard roads but completely an art picture, a landscape that combines light colors and serenity in strokes. That beauty also sometimes points through the sound array, where every step, every action of the main character will be a musical note connecting the sweet melody.
Monument Valley is a one of a kind experience, at once small in its meditative, simple gameplay, as well as enormous in its sense of history
