Monument Valley II

ustwo games

Guide a mother and her child as they embark on a journey through magical architecture, discovering illusionary pathways and delightful puzzles as you learn the secrets of the Sacred Geometry.

A universe of puzzles...

Following the success of Monument Valley came a completely new story set in the same fantastical universe. Monument Valley 2 tells the tale of a mother and child as they embark on a journey of discovery. The game allows the player to assist Ro as she teaches her child about the mysteries of the valley, exploring stunning environments and manipulating architecture to guide them on their way.

Players will explore ever-changing landscapes, mechanics that surprise at every turn and an evolving parent-child relationship.

“we needed to find another story to tell within that universe”

The team at ustwo Games have drawn inspiration from a variety of sources including mid-century illustration, theatre, toy design and even confectionery. The end result is a game in which every chapter is unique, every sound is engaging, and every moment is beautiful.

“An architect of the sacred geometry that you find in the world”

The story was driven by the concept of the mother and child relationship. The experience of the mother taking responsibility for the child, and the child relying on the mother and going through the experience of the world. The team’s goal was to focus on the ideas of care, and the transference on knowledge. The game’s levels and puzzles are bound by this ‘magical geometry.’
