Moss: Book II is the PSVR squeakquel we've been longing for

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
On last night's State of Play livestream, one of the best PSVR titles — Moss — was announced to be getting a sequel. Moss: Book II is an adventure game where you — the player — are a character inside the fantasy world assisting the mouse-hero Quill in taking down the winged creature who previously kidnapped your uncle.

Outside of extending the story, Moss: Book II is looking to "make the most of the capabilities of VR to create truly immersive gameplay experiences that ask the player to interact with the world and its characters," according to design director Joshua Stiksma in an article on the PlayStation Blog.

The game will be full of puzzles and secrets and create tangible and meaningful ways for the player to interact with the world. The combat will be rejigged a little from the first game, with extra weapons like a hammer, and a new ability that will help Quill explore the world and charge weapons. And what a world it is! The castle that the game appears to focus on looks daunting. In particular, the final moments in the cathedral-like main hall with the huge elongated stained glass windows gave us strong Castlevania vibes, alongside the cutesy Ghibli-esque characters. Obviously, the game is running on last-gen VR tech, so is looking a little washed out and blurry, but the art style more than makes up for it.

Thoughts please, lovely TT community! Will you be strapping on the PSVR headset to fill your eyeballs with mice and winged creatures? Let us know down below!
