PC owners, get ready to meet the cutest mouse in the world

Polyarc Games

Starting today, Moss is no longer a PlayStation VR exclusive. For the first time, PC players will be able to join tiny mouse Quill on her adventures on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Moss is a curious mix of first- and third-person gameplay, intertwining 3D sound and clever camera angles to convey diorama-like scenes. You’re known as the Reader, a powerful force that the residents of Moss are able to sense but not see. Solve puzzles with Quill to help her on a path to save her uncle from a fire-breathing snake.

From our review:

I found hidden items and details that I would’ve missed had I not stood up (sometimes on tiptoes!) or adjusted how I was sitting. When going through a temple, I was able to lean forward from where I was sitting and look left and right to see neighboring chambers. Sometimes I’d be looking up at Quill from a dip in a ravine. Other times, I was cozily tucked into a stone alcove, perpendicular to a long hallway with heroic statues. Every scene seemed as if it were set up by a thoughtful cinematographer.

Moss encouraged me to move around and actually rewarded me for my curiosity, something I haven’t seen in other VR games. I was so enamored with this idea that I probably took longer than I needed to finish this game.

In addition to the PC port, Polyarc has also added multiple save slots and additional support for Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Spanish and Italian languages.

Moss is now available on Steam for $29.99.
