Physics-Based Grapple Hook Metroidvania ‘Rusted Moss’ Final Steam Demo Available; New Update Ahead of February 2023 Launch

Publisher Playism has announced that the physics-based grapple hook Metroidvania by developers by faxdoc, happysquared, and sunnydaze, Rusted Moss, has received its final Steam demo with saved data transferable to the title’s full launch on February 2023.

The new update also features an updated localization in multiple languages, an updated UI and main menu screen, as well as additional assets and enhanced polish. This game was initially announced during Tokyo Game Show 2022.

Throughout this title, platforming and combat are performed with a full 360-degree aiming system, allowing inestimable freedom. Further, because of the physics-based momentum, the mechanics are intuitive but difficult to master.

However, the protagonist, Fern, is a changeling who was raised by human parents. She seeks to end the Age of Men and return Fae to the world with the help of a shadow named Puck.
