Moss Dev ‘Working Hard’ On Book 2 Follow-Up

by Jamie Feltham • April 10th, 2018

Released in late February, Moss is one of this year’s first great VR games and already a strong contender for the best PSVR title released in 2018. Naturally, we’re eager to see more, and it looks like developer Polyarc is working on just that.

In a recent PlayStation Blog post detailing the making of the third-person adventure the team’s Rick Lico teased a possible follow-up to the game. As fans will know, completing the adventure will earn you a Trophy named ‘A Promising Beginning’, the description for which labels the game as ‘the first book of Moss’. That certainly suggests more is on the way and, when asked about this, Lico didn’t hold back.

“Like any small, indy startup, we have a bigger plan we’d like to accomplish,” the developer explained. “We’re hoping that, thanks to our amazing fans, things will go well so we can see this plan through to completion. Fingers crossed.”

When again asked if ‘Book 2’ would take a long time, Lico replied: “I certainly hope not! We’re working hard to make sure that’s not the case.”

Whether that means Moss itself might get DLC adding the second book or if Polyarc is already working on a full sequel to the game remains to be seen. Either way, we’re excited; we gave Moss 9/10 in our review.

“Moss is the hidden gem the PSVR never knew it needed,” Games Editor David Jagneaux said in his review. “From the first moment we played the game at E3 almost a year ago until we saw the closing credits roll, Quill’s adventure has captivated our hearts and minds. Moss strikes that perfect balance between tense, action-packed moments of combat with slow, methodical puzzles that require you to rethink the way you interact with video games through the power of VR. Polyarc has crafted one of PSVR’s most essential games to date.”

    Cool. I like what I played, but they need to increase the resolution or something because it did seem more blurry than many other PSVR games I’ve played for some reason.

      The demo is blurry the final release is sharp on Pro. Not sure about OG.

        Base is fantastic. I have it and it is one of the most beautiful games I own.


    I just wish they’re not chargin the same price as the first one because as good as Moss was it was a steep price and felt rather short in the end. If they do I hope they make it a physical release, making moss only available digitally was an error, they lost many sales there and maybe bundling Moss with the second book would be a good way to inject more value.

    Hey. I give you permission to use my username. I asked him about Book 2. Feel free to use my name in your article.

    Also, totally worth it. These guys aren’t a billion dollar a year publisher. If they charge for DLC, I will be buying. I want to support them and help them grow.
