It's a game where you click or tap to move around and interact with objects. As you do characters and narration are delivered in rhyme. Early tasks include milking cows, patching the roof, making cheese, and rescuing a lost cow.
While other games offer a similar experience, Milkmaid of the Milky Way delivers a whimsical fairy tale that feels unique. The rhyming delivery and animated video clips make it feel like a fairy tale. Like fairy tales, it has some dark turns, but still is something players younger than its PEGI 12 rating might enjoy.
"Life is hard, work is tough, and Ruth wonders; Is this the life I want?" Says Ruth at one point. Milkmaid of the Milky Way is a story about moving into the unknown, breaking free from the past, it's a story about age, life, death and time - but most of all it's a story about finding your own place in the universe.
"I don’t want to spoil it too much but the main themes are compassion, environment, community and age. All handled very sensitively but with a pinch of humour too," said Ashley Day.
Rated for younger players in the US. ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for Fantasy Violence, Mild Blood, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes and Use of Alcohol.
Milkmaid has two puzzles at the end where you have to use items in a limited timeframe. You can't die or fail, but there is some timing required. Although the main game text is very clear, the diary entries are smaller text and on a less contrasting background.
