8 New Monument Valley Levels

My favorite iOS game — preferably played on the iPad — is getting eight new levels next Thursday. In the meantime, there is a fun promotional video to watch. The developers of the game describe various considerations they have faced creating Monument Valley.

Angry Birds’ popularity has been blown way out of proportion. It has earned bookoos, and it’s highly commercialized. The bigger Angry Bird’s became, the less relevant it became. For app development and the future of iOS gaming, games like Angry Birds made their mark but they didn’t mature with the platform. It was relegated to the mainstream — for people that would download the game because they heard of it, but only to play two or three levels then lose interest.

I have faith that Monument Valley will not turn out like that.
