First of all, if you haven't played Monument Valley, you should definitely do so. It's one of the best mobile games out there and one of the most stylistically beautiful games, period.
Also, SURPRISE. The hit game got a surprise sequel that was announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference and released at the same time. How developer UStwo managed to keep this under wraps until now is beyond me, but kudos to them for sustaining the surprise.
Monument Valley II features more of the same mind-bending puzzles but also focuses more on storytelling through the use of character animations and the environment. Also, the main characters (yes, there are two this time) are a mother and daughter, and the narrative will focus on their relationship through the game.
Will it directly tie into the first game's narrative? It doesn't appear to at the outset but you'll have to play the game to find out. Check out the trailer for the game below.
Monument Valley II can bought on iPhone and iPad today for $4.99. An Android release is coming soon, though no release window has been detailed yet.
