Upon its debut earlier this year, VRFocus thought Moss was one of the best PlayStation VR games at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). PolyArc’s Moss is an platform-puzzle videogame where the player interacts with the environment in order to help the little mouse Quill to defeat her enemies and solve puzzles.
Nina from VRFocus talks about playing Moss on the PlayStation VR, what it’s like to play as a character who Quill interacts with and even acknowledges your existence in the videogame. In a previous interview with Polyarc at Gamescom, VRFocus spoke to Chris Alderson, the art director for Moss, about how Polyarc started to develop the videogame as well as what they’re looking to do next.
Nina talks about Quill’s acknowledgement of the player’s existence and how breaking that fourth wall between a videogame’s protagonist in virtual reality (VR) really adds another dimension to playing it. Having a very lush and green environment rather than a futuristic, science-fiction horror videogame is also refreshing when you start noticing the grass, the leaves and beautifully designed maps. To get a better understanding of what it’s like playing Moss, watch the video below. Moss will be coming to PlayStation VR this holiday season, and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details.
