It was apparently a request from the fans : Moss : Book II having only been released on PlayStation VR and Meta Quest 2, many were waiting for a Steam release to try their hand at it. In any case, this is what Doug Burton from Polyarc says: “Gamers have been asking for Steam support since the launch of Book II, and now we are able to bring them the experience they have been patiently waiting for on their favorite headsets. And we are eager to know what they think about it.”This new version is compatible with Index, Meta Rift, Meta Quest, Meta Quest 2 headsets (with Quest Link) and HTC Vive.
And since good news never arrives alone, it is now possible to listen to the official soundtrack of the game, which is up for the Grammy Awards for the occasion. An OST signed by Jason Graves on solo piano, acoustic guitars and Celtic harp, with additional instrumental performances by Kristin Naigus (Irish whistles, flute, oboe, English horn), Reinoud Ford (cello) and Tom Strahl (bouzouki, oud), which lasts a total of 140 minutes, divided into 17 pieces. Jason Graves states :
“The original Moss holds a very special place in my heart and Moss: Book II is an extremely personal score. I added new instruments to the ensemble, I formed a small “pub band” of soloists to highlight Quill’s heroism and sorrows, and I even acquired a magnificent grand piano which constitutes the heart and soul of the score, performing most of the lines live on the piano, then adding other instruments to flesh out the themes. I hope this soundtrack will take players back to the magical world of Moss with every listen.”
A limited edition on CD and vinyl is also available for pre-order on Materia Collective and Bandcamp.
