    Feels like it was just yesterday that I created the upcoming thread for Monument Valley here on TA. So, so glad to see this out. :) 4 hours 46 mins left. *grinds teeth waiting*

    It depends on which version of the beta you played. If I remember correctly you played beta 1, so there should be another two levels in there, some levels got reworked and ALL the levels had a ton of visual polish applied to them.

    You gave birth to us and for that you are Ida's honorary god father/mother.

    Can you please define what is considered a level?
    It's not just one "building" is it?

    A pleasure and an honor. :) (I should look into adding "Ida's honorary godfather" into my signature :p)

    Actually bad naming on my part there, they're actually "chapters". The earlier chapters may contain simply one or two buildings but as you progress there are more screens and more advanced architecture to each chapter.

    Are there plans to add additional chapters/content in the future or do you consider the game to be complete as is?

    Not only does this game base its mechanics on M. C. Escher's impossible objects, but it looks and sounds like it has very high production standards. This simply looks and sounds amazing. Without a doubt an instant buy for me. I really hope there is a level based on M. C. Escher's Relativity lithograph as well.

    So you can complete the game in 90 minutes average nine minutes a level?

    90 minutes is very short or have I miss understood??

    Thanks, GaZ

    90 minutes? Surely not.

    Took me three days of intensive gaming to finish the beta. And it has been expanded from what I hear. It is a trip completely worth it. The kind of game where everything make you put a big smile on your face while thinking: neat!, wow!, so cool!. My Game of the Year 2014 so far.

    It seems that this was for the Beta. It was mentioned multiple times during interviews.

    Man, I love this trailer. Is that Tycho who did the music for it?

    I guess it really depends on how much people like the game. We'd love to make more chapters to release a couple of months after release and we will do as long as the game doesn't bomb :)
