Imgnation Studios, a Brazilian development company focused on virtual reality (VR), has today launched Cow Milking Simulator, a whimsical arcade videogame. Available now for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Cow Milking Simulator is, as you might expect, a VR simulation of milking cows.
Cow Milking Simulator is a party game in VR, designed to be played with friends. Players must milk the cow as fast as they can, earning milk, selling some dairy products, eating the cheese and making money. All of this, however, must be conducted under the pressure of a time limit. Players can collect new products, new hats for your cow and milking as fast as they can to place their name on the leaderboards.
Clearly inspired by Owlchemy Labs’ hugely successful Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives, Cow Milking Simulator sees the player instantly transform the milk they’ve collected from the cows into a variety of produce. There’s a variety of madcap goings-on to deal with, such as alien abduction of the cows, and the birghtly coloured design of the environments and objects makes the videogame suitable for players of all ages.
Imgnation Studios has previous experience with VR, having developed Dodge This VR for Samsung Gear VR and the VR port of Angry Birds Space, known simply as Angry Birds Space VR, on behalf of franchise creators Rovio. In a review of Dodge This VR, VRFocus stated: It’s a real shame that Dodge This VR suffers from such an uninspired basic formula, as layered on top is a wonderfully addictive progression system. “The root level gameplay and visual design are simply too weak to support it however, leaving Dodge This VR as a misshapen misfire that can’t compete with the enduring competition in this genre. The hope is that Imgnation will give VR another stab with something more inventive, but as it stands their first effort is decidedly lacklustre.”
Cow Milking Simulator is now available to download via Steam, having launched today, 31st October 2017, compatible with both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, priced at $4.99 USD. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest VR projects from Imgnation Studios.
