Monument Valley is non-traditional game experience composed of a small number of consistently delightful chapters. Equally accessible and engaging to gamers of all levels, the start-to-finish experience is akin to a walk through a museum or listening to a music album. While Monument Valley is intuitive enough to play without instructions, the game has aesthetic and functional depth because each screen works not only as an interactive puzzle, but also as a proper architectural structure and a finely-crafted composition within the frame. Monument Valley was inspired by the impossible illustrations of M.C. Escher and was further informed by Indian architecture, typography posters, the music of Brian Eno, and more. This fresh experience is powered by iCloud, Camera, Share Sheets, OpenGL Frame Capture, and Localizations.
