Moss now officially supports Windows Mixed Reality
The critically acclaimed VR game now sports official support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
As of its latest update, Moss, one of the VR world's most critically acclaimed games, now supports Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets. With this addition, Moss is now available on Steam for all three major VR platforms, including HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

Alongside the addition of official WMR support, Moss's 1.0.3 update introduces a new Controls sub-menu, available from the pause screen. With the new menu, you can quickly check out your current controller layout, as well as switch between two new layouts. One layout lets you change the way you control movement, with options for touch-to-move and press-to-move. The other layout lets you quickly change how your jump and attack actions are mapped to the controller. "Both options are intended to alleviate issues players have been reported with the Vive wand touch pad," Polyarc Games says.
Moss is a charming action-adventure title with exploration-based puzzles sprinkled throughout the world. The game places you in the role of Quill, a tiny, tenacious mouse who sets out on an adventure to save her uncle from danger. And while the gameplay is widely praised, seeing the forest world from the vantage of a tiny mouse makes the visuals a sight to behold as well.
If you haven't given Moss a shot just yet, you can pick the game up for $29.99 on Steam for Windows Mixed Reality, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. The game is also available for PSVR.

Nice, I've been looking into VR lately, and the selection on Steam is already looking pretty good. I'm thinking of getting a $200-$300 headset and trying out some simpler titles on lowest settings with my super weak system (NVidia 1050 4GB). If I like the experience, maybe it's time to spend $1000 on a eGPU enclosure and a 1080Ti before flying off in Elite Dangerous.
I'm patiently waiting for version 2 of these MR headsets. Looking forward to them, but if Steam is the only way to get games I may skip the systems all together. I'm not a fan of it.
You can get games from the Windows App Store but you're going to get a lot more games from Steam.
I think GoG might have some VR-games, but I'm not sure, and too lazy to look up.
Excellent news! Will give it a go for sure!
