The Monument Valley games are coming to PC in July

I will definitely take any excuse to fiddle around with the beautiful architecture of these worlds and explore their unfolding narratives again.

In a behind the scenes video posted to YouTube today, some of the developers discuss how they've made changes so that the games feel at home on PC as they once did on mobile.

Monument Valley and Monument Valley 2's Panoramic Editions will be available on Steam from July 12. All the DLCs and addons will be included as standard, too.
