Moss VR, also known simply as Moss, is a single-player action-adventure puzzle game designed specifically for virtual reality (VR) platforms. It was developed and published by Polyarc and first released in February 2018.

Here’s a breakdown of what makes Moss VR unique:

  • VR Perspective: The game offers a unique blend of first-person and third-person perspectives. You see the world from a first-person viewpoint as a glowing orb with a disembodied hand. However, you control Quill, a courageous young mouse who is the actual hero of the story.

  • Story: You encounter Quill on her quest to rescue her uncle from an ancient danger. She found a mysterious artifact that awakened a powerful magic, but it also put her uncle at risk. As a player, you become a guiding force for Quill, helping her navigate perilous environments and solve puzzles.

  • Gameplay:

    • Guiding Quill: You use your VR controllers to manipulate the environment, move platforms, activate switches, and help Quill overcome obstacles.
    • Combat: While primarily a puzzle game, there are some light combat sections where you can grab enemies to protect Quill.
    • Communication with Quill: Quill uses American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate with you, providing hints and expressing emotions.
  • Praise and Recognition: Moss VR has been praised for its visuals, story, and innovative VR gameplay. It has won numerous awards, including nominations for “Best VR/AR Game” at The Game Awards and “Best Debut Indie Game” at The Game Awards.

If you’re looking for an immersive and engaging VR experience that combines action, adventure, and puzzles, Moss VR is a highly recommended choice.
