Polyarc announced that Moss Book II will launch on Meta Quest 2 on July 21, 2022.
“For this release, we didn’t just want to get Book II running on Quest 2 and call it a day, so we took our time diligently balancing all aspects of the game, across graphics and gameplay, with the end goal being a truly memorable experience,” said Tyler Walters, technical artist, Polyarc. “Throughout this process, we were regularly excited by the level of fidelity we were able to achieve on Quest 2, often finding ways to make the game look and play better than ever.”
“The original Moss holds a very special place in my heart and Moss: Book II is an extremely personal score,” said Graves. “Adding new instruments to the ensemble, I put together a small ‘pub band’ of soloists to underscore Quill’s heroism and heartbreak, and even acquired a beautiful baby grand piano that acts as the heart and soul of the score, performing most cues live on the piano, then adding other instruments to flesh out the themes. I hope this soundtrack takes players back to the magical world of Moss with every listening.”
Moss Book II is the sequel to Moss, which tells the story of Quill, a young mouse hero who will work with the player to get through puzzles and environments. Quill is on a quest to find his uncle, and the player will need to help him wherever possible. The game last received DLC content in 2019, dubbed Twilight Garden. It added new puzzles, alternate weapons and armor, and various ways to interact with the characters.
This update also added a brand new chapter to the game’s story, which takes players to new environments to explore more of the world. During gameplay, players will discover portals that take them to the Twilight Garden, where they’ll be tested in new ways as a mysterious presence prepare them for the coming dangers.
Moss Book II is available now on PSVR.
