Here's more mousy gameplay from adorable PSVR platform puzzler Moss

Developer Polyarc has released new gameplay footage of its adorable, mouse-themed PSVR platform puzzler Moss, due to arrive on PS4 soon.

Moss charts the adventures of the tiny Quill as she journeys through a gorgeously rendered, human-sized fantasy world.
