In Monument Valley you will manipulate impossible architectures. More specifically, you guide a silent princess through a stunningly beautiful world. Twist and drag to reshape the world and help Ida to explore the surrounding environment. The game design make it easy for everyone to pick up, enjoy and complete challenges. Every building is a piece of art as it is inspired by minimalist 3D design, optical illusions, palaces and temples from around the world. As a result, it makes every monument a unique one and it provides a hand-crafted world ready for exploration.

The idea for Monument Valley didn’t come from a classic ‘eureka’ moment. We knew that we were trying to make a game about architecture. As a result, we drew a lot of inspiration from the artist M. C. Escher. His work incorporates impossibility into architecture in a way that, to us, suggested some incredible possibilities for game-play. 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 leader boards to climb.
