'Moss' Developer Polyarc Working On Unannounced Competitive Multiplayer Game, Playtest In April, Opens Sign-ups

Polyarc Games is developing a new, yet unannounced, competitive multiplayer VR game.

Doubling down on the VR market, Polyarc’s next game gives new and existing competitive gamers something to look forward to in the VR space.

Following the studio’s success in establishing a puzzle platforming genre truly designed for VR with the Moss franchise—which includes two of the all-time top-rated VR games, Moss and Moss: Book II—Polyarc is now diversifying its development portfolio to include a competitive multiplayer game.

Their unannounced project is something the team has been excited to develop since the studio’s inception in 2015, but first the player base needed to grow large enough to support multiplayer games of this nature.

“We are happy to see that the audience for VR continues to grow, now counting in the tens of millions of players, with more user-friendly and accessible headsets being released every year,” said Tam Armstrong, co-founder and CEO, Polyarc. “As a game development studio that aspires to create games for everyone, we want to find ways to reach more of the audience within VR and even create space for new folks to join us there. With that in mind, the greater number of players gives us the opportunity to try ideas we have for multiplayer gameplay that can offer more to competitive players.”

“It’s apparent observing the community of players out there and receiving some of our own feedback that there are a lot of gamers in VR who are looking for and want to play more competitive multiplayer games,” said Armstrong. “We are excited about this opportunity, as VR offers interesting considerations for multiplayer games. The ability to read the other player’s focus and intention as they move their head and hands are some of the elements that make playing games in person so compelling. We are looking forward to sharing what we’ve been working on and the fun we’ve been having playing it.”

Players can now sign up to participate in the closed playtest taking place the weekend of April 14-16, 2023.
