No Cinema. Ustwo on Monument Valley

Wann? 4. April 2016, 18:00 Uhr

Wo? Toni Kino, Toni Areal Zürich

Monument Valley is a surreal exploration through fantastical architecture and impossible geometry. Guide the silent Princess Ida through mysterious monuments, uncovering hidden paths, taking advantage of optical illusions and outsmarting the enigmatic Crow People. Inspired by the art of M.C. Escher, Japanese prints and minimalist 3D design, each level is a unique, hand-crafted combination of puzzle, graphic design and architecture. Like listening to an album or walking through a museum for the first time, Monument Valley is about discovery, perception and meaningful beauty.» (Source: Presskit, Monument Valley, ustwo)
