Lesson in puzzles

Time:2017-06-21   Source:China Daily


Some of the most popular modern fairy tales are played rather than told.

UK gaming company Ustwo's Monument Valley spins a story about a quiet princess Ida who worked to restore a colorful, geometric habitat.

For many, this mobile game probably delivered more puzzles than life lessons.

Now the design firm is back with a new game Monument Valley 2 to shift the mainstream awareness of what games can and should accomplish.

The Monument Valley 2 will explore the relationship between a mother and a child, from adolescence to adulthood. Such a character choice alone instantly makes the game something of an interactive outlier.

The game primarily tells its story visually. For instance, on levels in which the adolescent character is on her own, a lack of light may indicate fear.
