‘Monument Valley 2’ Launches Exclusively on the iOS App Store

Amid a day of
new hardware and software reveals from Apple
, the company
also announced the launch of Monument Valley
, which is out now exclusively on the iOS App Store for
$4.99 [Direct
]. Released by ustwo Games, Monument Valley 2 is
the sequel to the popular 2014 iOS game Monument Valley,
which tasked players with navigating a princess through a series
of increasingly difficult optical illusion mazes.

According to the developer, Monument Valley 2 follows
in its predecessor’s footsteps with all-new levels that are
“filled with illusory, meditative puzzles,” but this time
players are guiding a mother, named Ro, and her child through
the game’s puzzles. Ustwo Games notes that knowledge of the
original game isn’t needed to enjoy the sequel, but the two
games are set in the same universe.

Dan Gray, head of studio at ustwo Games says, “We wanted to
find the perfect reason to return to Monument Valley, and the
story of a mother who’s not only a parent but a creator of this
world is a narrative we felt compelled to tell. We spent two
years hiring some of the industry’s most talented people for
this team, and we’re excited to show this whole new take on a
game fans have been asking for.”

The game’s major features include:

  • A standalone adventure – A completely new
    story from the Monument Valley universe. You don’t need to
    have previously played Monument Valley to enjoy Monument
    Valley 2.
  • Individually crafted puzzles – Enjoy
    beautiful levels filled with illusory, meditative puzzles,
    using brand new interactions to explore the changing dynamics
    between characters.
  • Contemporary visuals – Artwork inspired by
    an eclectic mixture of architectural styles, artistic
    movements and personal influences, each translated into
    stunning geometric structures.
  • Beautiful audio – Immerse yourself in
    uniquely melodic interactive soundscapes, tailored perfectly
    to every step of Ro and her child’s journey.
