Upcoming adventure game Monument Valley looks beautiful, Swedish

A fanciful new trailer for the lovely-looking Monument Valley has been released, and its about as charming as flipping through the kids’ section in the Ikea catalog, which is to say it’s pretty charming! The crux of the game seems to be rotating and revolving blocks into impossible orientations so that a little guy in a pointy hat can climb to the top of the tower. To our unknowing eyes, the games seems to be a cross-pollination of the brain-punching puzzler Miegakure and the delightful illustrations of the games of Damp Gnat (whose iPhone game Icycle is candy to our eyes). If you haven’t heard of the developer ustwo, that’s because they work mainly with interface design, which is definitely a plus when making a gorgeous game like this one.
