Polyarc Releases Trailer For ‘Moss’ During PlayStation E3 Conference
Sony had an impressive showcasing today at their press conference introducing many awesome VR games including Skyrim VR. And on top of some amazing announcements, Moss by Polyarc was introduced on stage.
This particular title is an action-adventure puzzle game coming to Sony PlayStation VR. The story begins with a mysterious book in a grand, vaulted library that opens and transports the reader to a vast, magical world. You will be playing as a heroic character named Quill who is a brave mouse.
“We are designing Moss with the fundamentals that we know make a great action-adventure game while at the same time considering every decision with the unique strengths and opportunities VR offers fully in mind,” said Tam Armstrong, co-founder and CEO of Polyarc. “As a studio dedicated to the new medium of VR, our goal is still the dream we’ve always had as game developers—to create engaging worlds and share them with everyone.”
Quill is on a journey in a remote forest settlement who’s fated to be the key in a much larger story. You’ll be guiding Quill while also directly manipulating the field of play as your own character. Mutual communication and shared victories strengthen their connection to one another.
“In Moss, players can reach out, touch, and interact with the environment while guiding Quill through her journey. As a character within the world, players will work together with Quill to solve puzzles, overcome obstacles, and conquer any danger that comes their way,” said Danny Bulla, co-founder and design director of Polyarc. “As gamers, we’ve been conditioned for years to hold a gamepad in our laps when playing games, letting our thumbs and fingers do the controlling. It has been a great experience to create an immersive game that encourages players to reach into and interact with a tactile world.”
