The first game from Mountains, a new “craft games” studio headed by Ken Wong (lead designer of Monument Valley), Florence is best described as an interactive graphic novel set to music. It’s a beautifully illustrated and scored story about a young woman’s first first love. The soundtrack by Kevin Penkin (soundtrack composer of Made in Abyss) is especially good, and the entire package is extrordinarily polished.

This is a story driven experience, so our spoiler break is a bit early at [00:20:29].

Florence is available on iOS and (soon) Android, and costs $2.99. Expect it to take about an hour to play.
