Interactive: ustwo unveil gorgeous looking new Escher-inspired game

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Christmas is a time when us Brits break with tradition and make ham-fisted attempts to interact with our neighbours, leading to awkward evenings of cheap mulled wine and excruciating small talk. Luckily for us, one of our east London neighbours is ustwo, the digital design agency who combine high-tech brilliance with a wicked sense of mischief. The latest offering from their app game team (the same chaps who brought us the amazingly addictive Whale Trail) is Monument Valley, a stunning Escher-inspired game where you lead a princess through a beautifully-realised world of hidden paths and secret staircases. The teaser trailer and accompanying imagery are enough to whet our appetites and have us wishing away the festive period so we get closer to next year’s release date.
