Well, this is one way to start off a Monday. At the Apple World Wide Developers Conference, it was revealed that Monument Valley 2, a sequel to the indie darling mobile platformer, was not only in development–but that it had already been released into the world!
The original game grossed over 14 million dollars.The sequel is available on the App store for $4.99.
You can check out our review of the original game here. Reviewer Jeff Marchiafava scored it an 8 and said “The game only features ten levels, with the first few serving to introduce the basic gameplay mechanics. Only the final levels hit a satisfying length and complexity, and then the game is over. That shouldn’t detract indie fans from partaking in Monument Valley’s wondrous journey, however, which has already landed on my short list for mobile game of the year.”
I am actually a pretty big fan of developers doing the whole “Oh hey, this game is a thing…and it’s also available for you to play right now.” Let’s do more of this sort of thing, yeah?
