Monument Valley by ustwo Games has already put a big stamp on 2014 and declared itself a game of the year contender. Its wonderfully conceived touch-enabled puzzle platforming is full of reward and beauty. If you’ve fallen in love with the game like many people across the world, we wanted to share some more information with you. And if you are yet to fall in love, grab it here.
Firstly, we can expect more levels in the near future. Ustwo’s Neil McFarland told The Guardian: “We are making some more levels, but the reasons we're doing it are artistic reasons: there are some ideas that we didn't get to work so didn't put in there, but which we'd like to see work. There are some other things we'd like to try."
This is extremely good news; our only complaint with the game when we reviewed it in Episode 3 of Grab It was its length, and it’s exciting to know that more experiences are on the way. Although, it goes directly against what the studio told us during an interview just prior to the game. Designer Ken Wong revealed the team wanted to “do something completely different,” for its next project. It would appear, however, the unanimously positive response to the game has inspired a change of heart. Which is great!
Finally, we’d like to invite you to experience our world exclusive feature on The Making Of Monument Valley, put together with insights and behind the scenes art from the studio. It was the highlighted game in Episode 3 of Grab It, joining a number of other exclusive interviews, reviews, news, opinions, trailers, soundtracks and more. Check out the below trailer for a teaser of the content within, and grab the episode here.
