    15 September 2014, 8:49 pm by: Chris Reed

    We’re ridiculously huge fans of Monument Valley. It’s a fantastic game that’s ludicrously gorgeous. The worst thing about it is that it’s a little on the short side. Luckily for us (and for everyone else), new levels are a-coming. The new levels are…

    11 September 2014, 3:31 pm by: Chris Reed

    8 September 2014, 4:21 pm by: Chris Reed
