Bulgaria is home to 230 thousand cows and around 6.9 million humans. This means roughly every 30 people get a cow. Apparently, there’s a cow that’s been living at The Sixth Hammer studios. She’s set to star in Moo Lander, which has now been confirmed for release next month.

In the universe of Moo Lander, milk reigns as the supreme energy source. The power it possesses is only second to the stellar explosions of a dying star. Trouble is, it’s rapidly becoming scarce. The stakes for your civilization are high. However, rumours of an ancient device capable of producing infinite quantities of milk have reached your ears. After hoofing it to the only functioning spacecraft your civilization has left, you set out to a gorgeous, handcrafted world full of deadly aliens and ancient taurine foes.

Players will cruise over peaceful grazing fields and into sinister dungeons searching for the milk source. Along the way you’ll uncover the secrets of the Mighty Cows. You’ll need to take stock of the situation before stampeding in.

Moo Lander’s Cast of Cows

Over 20 Mighty Cows await your arrival in Moo Lander, each with their own unique abilities and personalities. Granny Toxic sends her horde of poisonous minions after you, while the Last Milkbender exercises complete control over the precious substance. Supreme Rabbit Cow uses its explosive carrots and superior mobility, honed over the centuries, to baffle its foes and stay one step ahead of the vicious, carnivorous Cowger.

Each Mighty Cow has a unique Cow AI that governs their behaviour and demands a carefully considered approach. Milk sabers, dairy beams, and more are at your disposal, but you dare not harm the Ancient Mighty Cows. These reverential beasts must be overcome with non-lethal methods and careful use of the environment. 

When you need a break from locking horns with the planet’s defenders, you and up to three others can play one of Moo Lander’s four multplayer modes in couch co-op or remotely via Steam Remote Play. Rustle up some friends to take on the powerful Cow AI together or throw all the chips down in fierce PvP combat. If you need something a bit more combat-free, join in the Cow Races and chase down the planet’s bovines in tense competition.
