MONUMENT VALLEY 2
BY USTWO GAMES
Focusing on universal themes and conveying the story of a mother and child relationship, the creative team at ustwo games surprised the world once again with a beautifully executed sequel to Monument Valley. With a core aim to “make small meaningful games that can be enjoyed by everyone,” head of studio Dan Gray led the team through an intense development and prototype creative process to craft a game with universal themes, following a mother and child as they make their way through the land of optical illusions, as architects of the sacred geometry found thoughout each level. “Creatively our objective is to continue to provide all the amazing things about interactive entertainment to a wide audience – the democratisation of game design.” says Gray. “There’s so many incredible mechanics and stories to tell [in gaming] that your average person isn’t ever exposed to. With MV2 we managed to make millions of people care about characters in a game for the first time.” www.ustwo.com
