Milkmaid of the Milky Way – November 25, 2015

Deep in a fjord, a girl and her bovine,
Western Norway, nineteen-twenty-nine.

This is a story from Calf Ledge,
a farm perched on a mountain edge.

Ahem… In Milkmaid you’ll play Ruth, who lives alone on a remote farm in a faraway fjord in 1920s Norway. She works hard and life is difficult. Ruth wonders if this is really the life she wants for herself.

One fine day, before she has a chance to sufficiently ponder the situation, a giant spaceship arrives and turns her world upside-down.

Milkmaid combines hand-painted backgrounds and old-school pixel art. Its narrative is filled with wonder and intrigue. Both automatic and custom saves are offered.

Look for the game on January 5, 2017 for Windows, Mac and iOS.

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.
