|Overview:||Monument Valley's award-winning visuals were critical to its success. The game's puzzles, based on optical illusions and impossible geometry required combining artistic and technical creativity. Influences as wide ranging as M.C. Escher, Middle Eastern architecture, Japanese flower arrangements and low-poly 3D art contributed to the unique art style. More than skin deep, the visuals were deeply integrated with the gameplay, story and design themes, creating a rich, accessible and highly intuitive experience.|
