The galaxy, not the candy bar — but you won’t have to try to milk a cow in zero gravity

Milkmaid of the Milky Way, from indie developer Machineboy a/k/a Mattis Folkestad, is a classic point-and-click adventure that focuses on story, exploration and puzzles.

In 1920s Norway, you become Ruth, a young woman who lives on a remote farm at the end of a faraway fjord. You milk cows and make delicious dairy products for your friend Erlend to sell for you in the village.

The countryside in which you live is beautiful but lonely. As you explore your surroundings, you learn about Ruth’s life and the demise of her parents. Is this the life Ruth really wants?

You don’t have time to ponder this, however, as tools — and even cows – begin to disappear. Then a mysterious construct appears over Ruth’s head, and her world is turned upside-down.

Development of Milkmaid of the Milky Way is still in its early stages. The developer’s blog contains a wealth of information concerning the game’s progress.

Machineboy is looking to release the game in 2016 on iOS, Mac and PC.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
