    I am with you on this. Somehow when i get inside a door a voice inside my head says "no goal pedestal in sight yet please."

    Definitely will be getting it first thing tomorrow!

    I came here after seeing the gameplay on AppSpy and it looks amazing. I don't see it very often with games with that price tag but this looks freaking fine! Glad to see UsTwo is back once again with a bang. Also excited to hear that the devs are open to expanding the levels in the future. That alone made me want to buy it even more.

    If I may be so bold, I'm going to go ahead and say Monument Valley is the epitome of what IOS gaming should be. At a time when "86% of gamers prefer free games with advertisments", where clones and clones of clones flood the charts and tear the spotlight away from the games that deserve it, where IAP and abusive freemium practices are rampant and only seem to grow more and more ubiquitous, we get a game like this, an original IOS exclusive, a premium game devoid of ads or in-app purchase, an experience that puts visual artistry and atmosphere first, that uses the tactile tangible nature of the touchscreen to its fullest potential, that is simple yet engaging and compelling. Monument Valley is not just a great IOS game, it's a great game regardless of system or platform.

    This reminds me of Wonderputt? I think that's what it was called? Anyways, looks awesome.

    Yep , that's what it was called. It was a very artistic golf game.

    And that's exactly what I look for and love in iOS gaming. Can't freaking wait.

    After watching Sanuku's video, all I can think is Sword and Sworcery. At least it gives me that vibe.

    I've gotten 3 hours sleep in 48 hours, but I couldn't get some rest without at least dropping in and saying something.

    This game is ****ing incredible. If you own an iDevice and do not have this on it for the remainder of your lifetime, I will hunt you down and...well, let's just say it won't be pretty. No, seriously...you're in for the treat of a lifetime, especially if you don't check out the videos and whatnot. It's that bloody good. Can't recommend it enough, and if the planned Android version is still in the pipelines, I'll be double-dipping for it...and any future versions on any platforms ever in the history of mankind.

    I hope it gets some levels overtime like Badland did. But I'm buying anyway.

    Its going to be a tough game to beat on iOS regarding sheer quality. Every single screen on this game is more polished and have more attention to detail than half of the AppStore games combined into one.

    I'm on vacation right now and don't know if I should download this to play on the plane because it will be on my iPhone, not ipad. Should I hurry the experience and play this on my iPhone or wait till my ipad??

    I won't look at any of the trailers or videos but it seems this game does not take very long to beat. How long does it take to play through it and will they add more levels? Thanks

    It depends on how quickly you take to it, I'd estimate 1-3 hours depending on if you get stuck at points.

    It seems like it won't last that long. Any chance you will add more levels? I'm probably going to pick this up anyways from all of the insane praise it's getting. BTW, I loved all of your other games.
