Also on: PS4

Ever since Moss was released on PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners have been asking its developers, Seattle-based Polyarc, about when the game will be released on their platforms. Well, those questions have now been answered because today, June 7thMoss has been released on both platforms as well as on Steam.

Moss has been praised for its intuitive gameplay, creative design, and attention to detail. The game centres around a little mouse explorer called Quill and you join on him on his journey, manipulating the world and guiding him. The game brings together the classic components of character development, great combat mechanics and exploration, all while creating an environment which is interactive and can be used as part of the game.

“Our mission as a studio is to create games that maximize the potential VR has to transport players into our stories and worlds. Bringing Moss to these platforms allows us to introduce Quill and her world to more than a million new players. There’s no other platform that allows you to truly connect and form a bond with characters such as Quill, explore rich environments, or engage in imaginative gameplay like VR. Starting today, all Oculus Rift and HTC Vive fans can join PlayStation VR fans in playing a first-of-its-kind gaming experience with Moss." - Tam Armstrong, CEO and co-founder of Polyarc.

As well as releasing on PC, the developers have introduced language support for Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and Italian languages, and will be introducing multiple save slots for players wanting to share Moss without interrupting their progress. Those who currently own Moss on PSVR will receive the additional language support, save slots, and other updates on June 12.

Wastelands' thrilling finale means it's a step up from Rules, but it makes a few missteps in its handling of the brothers’ relationship to get there.

It all began with the Atari ST. Then the first home PC. And the rest is history. Although a platformer and RPG lass at heart, I'm willing to give anything a go, and if a game looks quirky then you've got my attention!
