Paramount Pictures has partnered with ustwo games to create a family-focused film around the company’s Monument Valley mobile game.

The movie is rumored to include a hybrid of live action and CG elements.

Monument Valley and its sequel offer some of the most breathtaking visuals found in almost any mobile game.

The makers of Monument Valley, ustwo games, confirmed the news on Twitter shortly after Deadline unveiled the collaboration.

There’s going to be a Monument Valley movie!

We couldn’t be more excited.

Developer Ustwo Games have revealed the first year of sales and download data for its puzzle game sequel Monument Valley 2.

The game brought in over $10 million in revenue in its first year, nearly doubling the Year One sales of the first Monument Valley game.

In June 2017, developer Ustwo Games finally released its long-awaited puzzle game sequel, Monument Valley 2, on iOS.

It did the same for Android in October 2017.

Today, as it did with the first game in the series, Ustwo posted an infographic on the first year of sales and downloads for Monument Valley 2.

In short, the $4.99 game was a big hit, and did better in sales than Monument Valley 1 did in its first year.

The original Monument Valley was one of those mobile games that stands out in a sea of free-to-play cash grabs.

It was a game that showed us just how great smartphones and tablets can be as a gaming platform, so it’s no surprise that it managed to net itself a sizable fanbase.

For the past four-and-a-half months, a portion of that fanbase has been waiting for its follow-up – Monument Valley 2 – to arrive on their platform of choice.

Monument Valley 2 has been available on iOS since June 5, and all the while, Android users have had to sit by and wait for a release date for their platform.

That wait probably wasn’t helped by the fact that Monument Valley 2 has received mostly positive reviews since its launch, deeming it a worthy successor to the original.

Luckily, we now know when those Android players will get their shot at Monument Valley 2.

The studio behind the runaway smash hit gaming franchise Monument Valley, UsTwo, has revealed that work is ongoing for two new games.

Both of these games are unlike either Monument Valley or Monument Valley 2.

In a new YouTube video produced by Red Bull, the UsTwo team talk at length about Monument Valley, the company’s success, and how pressure is mounting for it to create new games which aren’t directly connected to Monument Valley.

However, the team does not have much to explicitly say about the two new games it is working on.

Check out the video for yourself below:

Lea Schönfelder, who is the project leader of one of the new games, says her game is about “bringing mobile games to the next level in terms of narrative.” David Fernández Huerta, the lead of the other game, describes his game as “inspired by real-life experiences.” Neither of the two designers gave anything more concrete than that, and no artwork or gameplay demos are shown in the video.

The sequel to Monument Valley was a surprise: back in June the game was announced and launched at the same time.

And while the game was an iOS exclusive at launch, it’s finally making its way to other platforms next month.

Developer Ustwo says that the Android version of Monument Valley 2 will be available on November 6th.

Like the original, a breakout hit that was downloaded more than 30 million times, Monument Valley 2 is a peaceful puzzle game, in which players guide characters through gorgeous scenes filled with impossible architecture.

The sequel changes things up with a larger focus on narrative, telling the story of a mother and her child over the course of 14 chapters.

It also introduces some new ways to interact with the world, and beautiful new levels to explore.

The studio has announced it’s making a film based on the mobile game phenomenon Monument Valley, with Oscar-winning short film director Patrick Osborne set to direct.

As reported by Deadline, Paramount and Akiva Goldman’s Weed Road Pictures are moving forward with an adaptation of Monument Valley, which has long been on the table for the big screen.

Osborne won an Academy Award in 2015 for his Disney short animated film Feast and is attached to direct the adaptation of Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona.

The studio hopes to make Monument Valley into a longstanding family franchise that would combine live action and computer animation.

“Monument Valley is a one of a kind experience, at once small in its meditative, simple gameplay, as well as enormous in its sense of history,” Osborne said in a statement.

“I’m privileged to be handed the reins to Ida’s mysterious kingdom, to play in her world of impossible architecture where seeing things differently is everything.”

The iOS sequel to its 2014 puzzle game plays it safe and doesn't reinvent any wheels, but it's still a competent puzzle game that'll charm its way from your iDevice to your heart.

There are several moments of wonder here: a room full of windows and blinds that can be shuffled and adjusted to grow and shrink plants.

These, like everything else in Monument Valley 2, become essential to solve a string of puzzles, and the vivid plant life against the black room is a moment that's stayed with me.

So too did a scene where mother and daughter separate, with daughter departing on a sailboat, barely tall enough to see over the bow of the tiny vessel as it leaves the shore, and the mother, left behind.

The graphics here are more vibrant colours and less pastel, while the puzzles largely seem to lack the head-scratching frustration and following brute force attempts as you try to suss out the whole valley full of monuments, but it's still a game largely without surprises.

One aspect I was happy to be surprised by was the game's story.

London-based ustwo launched Monument Valley on Android back in 2014 after a short stint as an iOS exclusive.

Since then, the game has garnered a very impressive 4.7/5 star rating on Google Play, in turn setting the bar for what a mobile game could be.

It was simple, beautiful, addicting, and had a stellar soundtrack that kept players coming back for more.

Now, after exclusively being available on iOS since June 2017, Monument Valley 2 has made its way to Android.

As we’ve noted previously, Monument Valley 2 is all about the story.

In it, you will guide a mother, Ro, and her child through beautiful structures as you learn secrets of the Sacred Geometry.

For three years since the release of Monument Valley, an acclaimed puzzle game for mobile where you must help the tiny princess Ida to explore a world that is reminiscent of M. C.

Now is the time for Monument Valley 2, a standalone sequel, where you must guide a mother and her children on a magical journey while you learn the Sacred Geometry secrets.

Following the release of Ustwo Games’ Monument Valley II on iOS last June, the incredibly artistic puzzler is almost ready for Android users.

The game is now listed on Google Play and you can pre-register to be notified when it launches (Ustwo hasn’t announced a release date yet).

The original Monument Valley costs about $4 in the store, so expect to see a similar price (if not a bit higher) for the sequel when it’s out.

In case you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend Monument Valley for its beautiful art style and clever puzzles full of Escher-inspired spaces to keep you engrossed for a couple of hours.

It’s hard to believe the game is already three years old, as it hardly shows its age.

You can now grab one of the best mobile games ever made without spending a cent.

The original Monument Valley is completely free on the Google Play Store for the next week, and if you haven’t played it already you owe it to yourself to hit that download button.

Ustwo’s lush isometric puzzler sees you guide a repentant princess called Ida as she adventures through lovingly designed and crafted maze-like structures.

As well as controlling Ida’s movement with simple taps, you’ll also need to decipher increasingly more complex optical illusions and manipulate the architecture to create a path for the diminutive heroine.

Released in 2014, Monument Valley has won countless awards — including two BAFTAs — and has earned a well-deserved reputation as being one of the finest games you can play on a smartphone.

An equally excellent sequel, Monument Valley 2, made its way to the Play Store last year.

Monument Valley 2 is a known entity at this point – the game was first made available for iOS’ App Store back in June.

Even so, the game is still a treat for the eyes and the brain, a treat that is now available through the Play Store – sort of.

As a quick recap, Monument Valley 2 follows its predecessor’s footsteps in that the game tasks players with manipulating the landscape to make platforms that would otherwise be impossible make in the real world.

You control Ro and her child as they make their way through the Sacred Geometry, with players witnessing how the child’s dependency on the mother slowly changes into self-sufficiency.

To be fair, Monument Valley 2 is not everyone’s cup of tea.

At the core, it is a puzzle game with story elements, so keep that in mind before downloading the game.
