Publisher Playism and co-developers faxdoc, happysquared, and sunnydaze have announced console ports for Rusted Moss.

The grappling hook metroidvania game is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 5 sometime next spring alongside a big content update for the game.

“We’ve been working hard on the major (and final) content update of Rusted Moss,” the teams said in a press release. “While Rusted Moss will not have a sequel, it sometimes feels like this major content update might as well be one! And as you can see, we probably enjoyed making this update a little too much and will need more time to add in and polish all these new features. On the plus side, this also coincides with some exciting news, that being the console release! Thank you all for your patience and support!”

Rusted Moss has been available on Microsoft Windows (through Steam). Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:

This Metroidvania has a physics-based grapple!

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

Now for the Hook!

The grappling hook is hard to learn yet rewarding to master. This unique physics-based elastic grappling hook uses your kinetic momentum to propel your character forward. Similar to rock climbing, there’s no set path through this melancholic abandoned wasteland. Latch onto any moss covered structure and swing your way through this rugged terrain.

Guns Guns Guns

No more aiming in just 8 directions. As a twin-stick shooter, Rusted Moss emphasizes tight and precise gunplay. Quickly switch between your arsenal of weapons to best suit your playstyle and situation. Get up close and personal with a shotgun before grappling away and pulling out a sniper for the killing blow!

Boss Fights!

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. Dodge swords, avoid energy fields, and blast away at conjured spiders.

Level Editor – Share your own custom levels using Steam Workshop!

The Rusted Moss Level Editor allows you to create your own original stages, letting your imagination run wild with a bunch of tiles, terrain, and gimmicks to play around with.

Challenge yourself (and others) and explore your creative side of Grapplevania’s with the endless designs and possibilities! You can also upload your custom levels using Steam Workshop and play levels created by other players.


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 have stolen a human baby, and replaced it with something else…
