Today, Polyarc animation direction Richard Lico tweeted out a GIF that shows Quill, the mouse protagonist from Moss, putting on a VR headset and gazing down at a virtual duplicate of herself. We didn’t think much of it at first, other than how adorable it is, but follow-up tweets are making us a bit more curious.
For starterts, Moss developers Polyarc retweeted the GIF saying, “We wanted to get Quill’s reaction to putting on a new headset,” which strongly implies the game is heading to new devices other than the PSVR sooner rather than later.

Then, Oculus joined in on the fun with a retweet of their own stating, “Stay tuned for some exciting news from Polyarc Games later this week,” which seems like all but confirmation Quill will be seen in an Oculus Rift very soon. Maybe the Go and Gear VR as well?

Adding further fuel to the fire is HTC also retweeting this GIF, remarking at the presence of Quill’s two spirit hands, which implies motion controller support will also be coming to the Rift (and now presumably Vive) versions of the game.
Wait…Are those two spirit hands?! https://t.co/RLoATIFsMy

Keep in mind nothing has been formally announced, but it feels safe to assume Moss is getting officially ported to PC VR headsets. Let us know what you think of the news and when you think it will release down in the comments below!
