You don't need a special announce to mention the rocket start of a new iOS game "Monument Valley". Designers from "the creative silicon valley" - Shoreditch, London forming the agency UTSWO released the game being inspired by the surreal world of M.C. Escher.
"Monument Valley is an elegant puzzle game where you guide a young princess, Ida, through a maze of ruined monuments. You manipulate the landscape to let Ida get from place to place, using optical illusions to your advantage – as in Monument Valley, when walkways appear to line up, Ida can walk along them – even when you know that they really don't." via Digital Arts

While the idea itself is not necessarily new, the execution is very well done, leaving the viewer with a sense of awe." via Highsnobiety
