In the past there were two ancient civilizations – the Anunnaki and the Landers. They were both highly advanced, technological races. They raised cows and used their milk as a primary resource as they have found that it was the purest and most effective energy source in the Universe. For many centuries these two civilizations were living in peace! But in time the Anunnaki became greedy and wanted all the milk for themselves. That led to The Great War. After long and devastating battles between the two peoples, most of the cows were killed and both civilizations were doomed to extinction.
The Landers’ wise scholars recalled an ancient legend about a device that could produce infinite amounts of milk. As a last resort, they sent their bravest soldier on a mission to find this legendary piece of machinery and save their world. The warrior died soon after being sent. This is where you step in – you are the second chosen to find that device.
In the game you play as one of the most elite soldiers amongst the Landers. You will undertake the most important mission of your life – to find that device and save your civilization from extinction.
The upper image on the left features your kind – The Landers. They are the first to discover the real power of the milk. They are a highly advanced race that is capable of all but dominating the universe. But as powerful as they are, they are also very wise and kind. They will always protect the weak, help the old ones and not seek meaningless wars! Nevertheless, The Landers will always be prepared for one.
And on the right you can see The Anunnaki – ancient and powerful as the Landers, but much more self-centred. They believe they are the true masters of the Universe. They also fuel their civilization entirely on milk. But their greediness eventually led to The Great War, which led them on the verge of extinction!
The cows are the cherry ontop of the Moo Lander cake – we have really spent much time in developing the cow AI. With vast array of abilities, each ancient Cow is unique and requiresits its own unique approach!

You will often have more than one approach to defeat an enemy, so each player will have to develop a unique fighting style.
The environment must be interesting and challenging in its own way. And we wanted to maximize interactions between you, the environment, the cows and the enemies. With that in mind we started designing all the enemies that you will encounter, according to the players’ skills. During your journey, you will go trough many different terrains – each with its unique new challenges, enemies and interactables. This means you’ll have to find the correct strategies and abilitiesfor every different case in order to progress in the game.
