Moss, a virtual reality adventure game included in the PlayStation exclusive VR bundle (which has all the basics needed for virtual reality), is a kid-friendly fairy tale. The player reads a storybook and guides the mouse heroine, Quill, through a world filled with battles and environmental puzzles. Quill makes eye contact with the player and interacts with the player’s actions, even gesturing and communicating through sign language.
Our Take on Moss
Preteens will likely enjoy this VR game as they enter this mouse-size world as a correctly sized human. Although combat comprises about half of gameplay, Quill acts primarily in self-defense against robotic beetles. Other than that, the game is full of positive messages about bravery and using smarts to overcome obstacles. That said, because VR isn’t recommended for kids under age 12 because of how it can impact young ones’ physiological development, we recommend it only for older preteens.
