Moss and Moss Book 2
Moss and Moss Book 2 are two titles keeping the classic anthropomorphic tale of tiny mice alive and well within the sub-genres of fantasy. This game has you helping out a little mouse named Quill in a fantasy world as it journeys and battles all kinds of nasty monsters. The unique perspective of this game doesn’t put you in the first-person field of view; rather, you have more of a third-person perspective that allows you to oversee Quill and the world as you play. This game delivers adorable characters for those who want more than just realistic and dark adventure games on their PSVR2 and still possess enough challenges to satisfy fans of action, adventure, and fantasy.
The Last Clockwinder
In The Last Clockwinder, you’re doing your part by helping a bunch of robots repairs a clock tower by interacting with the environment and programming your exact movements into the robots. If you want a robot to keep performing a specific action, you set it to record it, perform it yourself, and then after you finish your recording, the assigned robot will continue doing that action as long as you want them to. It sounds easy to start, and it is, but you’ll eventually have to record more complicated actions like throwing items, catching items, and using than one robot at a time. As you can now imagine, things will get hectic in no time.
The Tale of Onogoro
Studio Amata K.K. brings this new Japanese mythical fantasy story to the PSVR2 and later the PSVR. In The Tale of Onogoro, you enter a parallel world where you must help a shrine maiden named Hal defeat five beasts that threaten the safety of the world. The visuals have an anime-inspired and cel-shaded look that should satisfy anime and manga fans. The music and setting are also reminiscent of Japan and that’ll help players feel like they’ve been transported to an alternate reality of Japanese culture.
Horizon Call of the Mountain
Horizon Call of the Mountain piggybacks off one of PlayStation’s most popular franchises and carries with it lots of hype. Being able to take on a first-person perspective while experiencing the dangers of the world, from monsters to jumping across cliffs will be a thrilling adventure, to say the least. Your primary weapon appears to be the trademark Horizon bow and there already seem to be more than enough robotic dinosaurs to engage and slay.
