Milkmaid got the Green Light!
Milkmaid running on PC, Mac and iOS
Release date: Late 2016
Deep in a fjord, a girl and her bovine,
sometime in Norway, 1929.

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

It's 1920's Norway, and you play as Ruth, a young woman who lives alone on a remote farm at the end of a faraway fjord. You take care of your cows and make delicious dairy products that your friend sells in the closest town. But life is hard and work is tough, and Ruth ponders: Is this really the life she wants? It's not easier when mysterious things start happening to her and her cows.

And then a huge, mysterious ship descends from the skies, turning Ruth's life upside-down.

Milkmaid of the Milky Way is a classic point-and-click adventure game that combines an exciting story with puzzles and exploration. It's also written completely in rhyme!

Legendary adventure game designer Tim Schafer thought the trailer was cool:

  • A lovingly crafted universe with hand-painted backgrounds combined with old school pixel art
  • An exciting, intriguing story filled with wonder
  • All dialogue and game text written in rhyme!
  • Puzzles and exploration
  • 5 Save game slots
  • Four cows
  • Lovely, original soundtracks

Milkmaid is a self-funded indie game by me, Mattis Folkestad. I've poured everything I've got into it, and I hope you'll give it an upvote if you think the game sounds intriguing. The game is currently in beta, playable all the way to the credits. Only bug fixing, tweaking and platform adjustments remain before release. If you like adventure games like Loom, Monkey Island and Broken Age, I think you will enjoy Milkmaid!
