Project Introduction

Ever wandered what a cow-overlord would look like? Moo Lander is an action-adventure RPG with Metroidvania elements featuring an epic story about cows and milk.

In the game the milk is the purest and most effective resource. You will unlock a unique arsenal of milk weaponry and defenses, while stranded on a dangerous alien world with your faithful ship AI.

Together, you will have to fight and outsmart intelligent enemies, while uncovering the motivation for your character’s journey and the emotional story behind it. You will meet memorable characters and unearth ancient secrets while the story twists and turns at every corner.

Then comes the most brutal aspect of our astonishing world – you will have to challenge our Mighty Cow bosses! Expect glorious action battles, while trying to find a way to defeat our lightning-fast lethal Cow AI.

You will also be able to get together with your family and friends and have lots of fun with Moo Lander’s up to 4 people couch multiplayer. With vastly different modes to play, you will be able to face each other in a variety of ways. You can even take control of the Mighty Cows and experience an entirely new skill-set, then go up against the heroes of the story in order to protect your Milk!

Moo Lander is coming to PCs and Consoles (Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch) in Spring of 2022.

###Alone in an alien world

Moo Lander’s story explores the adventures of the last Hero of the Landers and his trusty AI – Hamilton! You can be a part of this adventure! Experience shocking revelations and discover the secrets of the Mighty Cows, explore the beautiful environments of the game – all handcrafted with passion and devotion, and listen to amazing music along the way. With branching dialog choices and optional action paths, you are in control of the fate of an entire civilization!

### A story about the milk

It is all about the milk! The purest and most powerful energy source, rivaled only by the brightest hyper-novae, the milk has been lost after The War with the Anunnaki! Without it, the civilization of the Landers is left on the brink of extinction – so you will have to take the only left interstellar spaceship on a mission to recover an ancient device. This device is believed to be able to produce infinite amounts of milk. Can you get the job done on time? The fate of the Landers is in your hands!

### Tame the mighty cows

As you progress through the game, over 20 different types of Mighty Cows will stand in your way. From the darkest dungeon to the steepest peak, these powerful bosses are everywhere and will threaten the mission. We have developed an advanced Cow AI and you will need to master your skills in order to match the cow’s superior intellect! Every single cow boss is cinematically crafted and has its unique attacks, abilities and strategies. A cosmic challenge awaits every single gamer who chooses to be the Hero of The Landers!

### It’s an action RPG

You will gain experience with every enemy defeated, become stronger and unlock new abilities. As you progress further, you’ll equip special arsenal and deploy different ship camouflage modules, tipping the scales of battles in your favor. Gather every last drop of the milk resource and use it for powerful upgrades! Managing this resource carefully is crucial to staying alive and being up to the challenge of Moo Lander!

### Four-player couch multiplayer

Our vastly different multiplayer modes offer numerous ways to play with dozens of different skills and terrains to explore.

You will freeze and burn, spit and stab your way against friends as you take control of a Mighty cow. Master over 20 different species – each will different deadly and powerful attacks.

You’ll be able to harness the milk weaponry and fight together with friends with an arsenal of over 15 different abilities against our fierce Cow AI.  Then you can turn on each other in our deathmatch Arenas – carefully crafted for fast-paced PvP combats.

The Arenas in all modes are not just visually different – each offers unique hazards and tactical opportunities. You will need to study the alien world of Moo Lander and learn to use it to your advantage.

Once you figured it out, you can try facing off against our alien flora and fauna – try to survive the enemy waves long enough together with friends. But you should be careful, because all encounters are different - one can never be sure about the best strategy.

After hours of brutal action, you can continue exploring the game by playing our signature Sport – the Galactic Moo-ball! Here you will have to master playing with dozens of different balls – each with its own characteristics. And then show off your skills on all sorts of terrains – boney doors, mazes, teleportation tubes – our multiplayer has it all!

About Developer

We had an interesting start – back in 2010 the two programmers, future co-founders of the company (Yasen and Dimitar), met at the Plovdiv Highschool of Musical Arts. Then we started programming together, developing websites, mobile applications, PC software and most importantly – games!

The core idea of the game came in 2013 – there weren’t many cool mobile games at that time, so we decided to make one great, big game that we ourselves would like to play. The first idea was pretty simple – you fly with your spaceship and suck cows in it. During the development process we made the storyline bigger and longer, we added new and improved enemies and several more pretty interesting abilities, we made larger and more complex levels.

The problem was that we mooved away too far from the initial idea and the game became way too big and complex for a mobile device platform. One day we just decided to stop, rethink our ideas and start over.

The game itself, by design, was for desktop PCs. We took part in an event – Plovdiv Startup Weekend, and there we made the first ever playable demo (using Unity) of the game. It was only the two of us – Dimitar and Yasen. All the other participants of the event liked the demo a lot. This made us start working on a bigger and better one that we could present at the largest gaming happening in Bulgaria – the GameDevSummit in Sofia.
