Grapplevania “Rusted Moss” for Steam PC Delayed to Q2 2023

Indie game publisher PLAYISM recently announced that Rusted Moss has been delayed to Q2 2023. The game was previously planned for a February release.

Developed by faxdoc, happysquared, and sunnydaze, Rusted Moss is a folktale-inspired, action-adventure game in the “Metroidvania” gameplay style, also referred to as a “Grapplevania” by the developers.

Here’s the official breakdown of Rusted Moss from Playism, followed by a recent trailer:

Fern is a changeling set out on a mysterious mission while Fae invades the human realm. Players will use an intuitive grappling hook to fly across a hostile land while gunning down mechanical monstrosities.

Journey across desolate landscapes drenched in melancholy; witness the remnants of humanity and their rusting iron inventions…

Humanity is on the brink of collapse and will soon be invaded by faeries. In a desperate bid to survive, humans have empowered their own witches with stolen fae magic.

But all is not lost, as the humans were deceived – for one of their own is not what she seems. The fae has stolen a human baby, and replaced it with something else… Raised by unsuspecting human parents, Fern is a changeling whose true loyalties have emerged. Alongside a mysterious shadow named Puck, she sets off on a journey to return fae to the world and end the Age of Men.

Whose side will you choose – human or fae?

Features in Rusted Moss:

  • Creative platforming focusing on a grappling hook (No classic double jump!)
  • Fast-paced bullet-hell inspired boss fights
  • Unique Trinkets!
  • Trinkets are Fae blessings that give your character special abilities.
  • Customize your playstyle!
  • Beautiful desolate environment to explore

If you are eager to get your grapple on, the good news is that there is already a free demo version available, and your demo save file is fully transferable to the final version of Rusted Moss when it releases in Q2 2023.
