As you guys know from my article on “Summer Lesson: Allison & Chisato,” I’m very interested in VR gaming and thus try my best to stay up to date with anything VR related. Here’s a piece of news for all of the other VR fans out there – “Moss,” one of the most critically acclaimed VR games that first launched on the PSVR is finally seeing a PC port. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, the game has you controlling a small mouse called Quill as she journeys across a seemingly massive human-sized world battling enemies and solving quests.
Have a look at the accolades trailer.
Looks amazing doesn’t it? The PC version supports both the Oculus Rift and the Vive. It also features several special features that haven’t been made available so far for the PSVR version: high resolution graphics, multiple save slots, and greater language support. Among these extra features, I’d say the most notable one is its compatibility with the Oculus Touch and Vive controllers allowing the player to use their hands to interact with the virtual environment.
The PSVR release of Moss is currently sitting at 84% on Metacritic, and is widely considered to be the single best VR game available right now. Reviewers have praised the originality of its puzzles, the breathtaking world design, and the smart control system. Polygon’s review on the game and many others have compared the experience to being transported into a storybook fairy tale-like land. Considering the PC version features both a higher resolution and the aforementioned support for the Oculus Touch and Vive controllers, it’s easy to imagine the experience being even more immersive and magical.
As far as I can tell, Moss’ only major criticism is actually that it ends too soon! Considering its impressive reception, I’m sure Polyarc will be releasing more content for the game in the not too distant future, rectifying one of the only complaints reviewers had for the game.
