Monument Valley is an Escher-inspired iOS treat

We're big fans of the work of M.C. Escher at Creative Bloq; his impossible landscapes and twisted geometric patterns are beautiful and intriguing, and time spent gazing at them is never wasted. And so we were delighted to get our hands on ustwo's Monument Valley; not only is this new game one of the best iPhone apps available right now (it's just as lovely on the iPad too), it's also a brilliant piece of experimental design that's clearly inspired by Escher's reality-mangling work.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
