Monument Valley: A Monument in UI & UX

In previous articles we’ve briefly touched the theme of game design, game user interface and experience. We thought it would be a good idea to dwell a bit more on this subject and see what we could learn from great game design and how these lessons might help brands reach more customers and enrich their online interaction with your brand. Visually, Monument Valley has all the qualities of a masterpiece. Decades from now on, when people will look back at the games created at the beginning of the 21st century they will rediscover Monument Valley and consider it a classic in game design, due to its friendly, minimalist interface, beautiful gradients that add depth to each level and the intuitive details added to subtly guide you through the game. …
