Back in 2018, gamers were given the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of The Mooseman, as Sometimes You delivered a mysterious world full of ancient myth. Today, some three years on from that launch, that same game is being upgraded, making the most of the power of Xbox Series X|S and PS5.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 is the next-gen version of The Mooseman. Now, if you have previously purchased the game, you’ll be able to upgrade your version to the new next-gen powered edition with a 50% discount in tow. If not, expect to pay around £5.79 for the Xbox Store download you need. Alternatively, there’s a free trial in place too.
But what is The Mooseman? Well, it’s a game that plays on ancient myths, mystery and hidden secrets. It tells of the Middle World, or how spirits lay amongst others and how the journey through this world will be able to delight the player with artefacts of tribes and more.
It’s a game that we’re torn with. On one hand the art style shines, as does the music and the journey that you’ll be taken on. But there are frustrating moments too – mostly focused around the slow pace and nature of the game.
In fact, the key features of the game (those that you need to bear in mind) include:
- • Explore the worlds inspired by Perm animal style
- • Dive into the deep atmosphere of folk Komi music
- • Meet long forgotten gods and spirits
- • Learn the ancient myths of finno-ugric tribes
- • Don’t expect an easy journey, there are riddles in the dark
- • Unlock new abilities and use them to get to the Upper World
We’re reviewed The Mooseman (twice in fact) and you can read all our thoughts concerning the original Xbox One version right here, whilst our opinions covering the new Xbox Series X|S drop are also up and live.
You’d do well to check out both reviews, before being utterly tempted in to a purchase of The Mooseman on Xbox Series X|S or PS5.
Let us know which way you drop in on this one. The comments are below.
You are the Mooseman and you have the ability to see all that is hidden to the mortal eye. You are about to visit three layers of this universe – the first one is the Lower World where the spirits of the dead reside. Welcome to the mysterious world of ancient myth, based on finno-ugric culture of bygone pagan times. Long-long time ago the world was created out of an egg-shell by a god named Yen. In the murky depths of the endless ocean the Lower World was born. The Middle World was made for the men to dwell, and the Upper World was were the ancient gods would reside. Multitudes of spirits dwell among the layers of creation, guarding their secrets in the dark. Embark on a journey through all the worlds of ancient myth, find artefacts of Chud’ tribes and solve all the mysteries of finno-ugric tales.
