Story / director quotes:
UsTwo Games head Dan Gray told Newsbeat: "I do not even know where this crazy roller coaster ends.
"To get to this point, from a group of people in Shoreditch who just want something they're proud of, it's really humble."
When it comes to story, the possibilities are endless, because there are hundreds of different stories & # 39; to tell, Dan said.
He continued: "One of the reasons we decided to give this the time of the day is that it is a story that leaves a lot to your imagination.
"The story of Monument Valley one and two comes from the interpretation of a player.
The film is something that captures the identity of the images and the feeling and the characters with which they can go wherever they want.
"It is not determined by certain lines and conversations that took place in the game that we have already made".
Live action characters are brought into the extraordinary world of mind-bending.
Director Osborne said: "Monument Valley is a unique experience, at the same time small, with a meditative, simple gameplay and enormous in its history.
"I have the privilege of being handed the reins to the mysterious kingdom of Ida, to play her world of impossible architecture, where everything is different to see things differently.
"I am delighted to bring this unique world to the theaters with the talented storytellers from Paramount and Weed Road."
