Grappling hook metroidvania Rusted Moss announced for PC – Effinate Games

PLAYISM has announced at Tokyo Game Show 2022 that they will be publishing metroidvania Rusty moss.

The new game is being developed by faxdoc, happysquared and sunnydaze for PC (via Steam) with a launch for February 2023.

There will be a demo of Rusty moss during TGS 2022, where those who clear the demo within a certain time will win a pin badge themed after the game.

Here is the trailer announcing the game:

Here is an overview of Rusted Moss:

This metroidvania uses your grapple and weapon with a full 360° aiming system. The freedom created by these controls creates a smooth experience, allowing users to feel in full control of their character. Find creative solutions to flexible traversal challenges and blast away witches and machinery with precise aim.

The grappling hook is difficult to learn, yet rewarding to master. This unique physics-based elastic grappling hook uses your kinetic momentum to propel your character forward. Like rock climbing, there is no set path through this melancholic forsaken wasteland. Lock on to any moss covered structure and swing your way through this rugged terrain.

No more aiming in only 8 directions. As a twin-stick shooter, Rusted Moss emphasizes tight and precise shooting. Quickly switch between your arsenal of weapons to best suit your playstyle and situation. Get up close with a shotgun before you go and pull out a sniper for the kill!

Push your gunplay and grappling hook skills to their limits! From powerful witches to machine monstrosities, each boss fight throws its own unique challenge at you. Avoid swords, avoid energy fields, and blast away at enchanted spiders.


Travel across desolate landscapes drenched in melancholy; witness the remnants of humanity and their rusty iron inventions… Humanity is on the brink of collapse and will soon be invaded by fairies. In a desperate attempt to survive, humans have empowered their own witches with stolen five magic.

But all is not lost as the humans were deceived – for one of their own is not what she seems. The faeries have stolen a human baby and replaced it with something else…

Raised by unsuspecting human parents, Fern is a changeling whose true loyalties have emerged. Together with a mysterious shadow named Puck, she embarks on a journey to return the fae to the world and end the age of men.
