When cows are attacked by mysterious forces on Earth, you are called upon to complete challenges and face battles to get your cattle back to their Mooooonbase. Fight alone or with your friends to defeat the scourge of evil and use your cows to charge! 

Using milk as a weapon of mass distraction, you can lick your enemies into oblivion! Various modes are available at your fingertips, but don’t forget to customise your cow – we’ve got a wardrobe full of looks to make your cattle battle ready! 

Visit new countries, sample new experiences and make new friends as you herd your cows towards Moooonbase HQ. Come and join us on the funniest adventure you’ll play upcoming year!

Our game modes provide all the fun. Try solo mode with endless runs in wacky locations where you need the highest score to be the best. Collect coins, break stuff, kill the enemies and stay alive! Play against your friends as they become the enemy! 

Build up your rep on the leaderboards and take 1st place! Our games contain puzzles and endless levels where only the best cow wins. See who survives in a race to the finish where kudos comes from beating your friends.

Hold back the tide of enemies as they pour through your levels. Get mad, AND get even by bringing your animal instinct to every wave as they increase through the game. Use your power, get crazy and wild but don’t die. This is a mode for the trained mercenaries, the hardcore lunatics and the crazed elites who take glory over honour.

Get your cattle ready for battle: we’ve got work to do! Bring your best game face to our seasonal tournaments where you could be the last cow standing. Sign up, jump in and get your battle pass for a unique series of events where kicking rump leads to some serious rewards, gifts and loot unavailable anywhere else in the game. 

You can play in any mode, so long as you play! And you don’t need a battle pass to make the ultimate sacrifices, you just need to get your hooves dirty.  Leaderboards will guide your way as you udderly obliterate the enemy to be the best!

We’re turning friends into frenemies with our fun social challenges which are available at any time to test friendships on your player list. You can share your favorite adventures in endless and competitive modes with anyone on your friend list and challenge them – can they do better than you? Only one way to find out!

The Cowmergency can’t end until we’ve saved every last cow. We’ve gotta herd in every corner of the world, so we need you! Every day in The Cow Game we’re bringing a brand-new challenge. We’ve got quests, missions and puzzles to keep our cows mooooving. Bring the skill and we’ll bring the rewards. 

Got some beef? We’re bringing weekly rewards for cows who wanna tear some new ones. Step into our various game modes and try something new. Take on the challenge for a week and kick some rump. We’ve got seasonal themes like Christmas or Halloween to add style and power to your arsenal. 

Test your mettle but… this isn’t for the faint hearted, the steaks are seriously high with this one. We’re offering exclusive rewards unavailable anywhere else in the game. 

Our poster girl, was involved in an unprovoked attack that blew up into a full-blown war between us, and them. They lurk in every corner: watching, waiting for just one cow to get lost or make a mistake. 

That’s where you come in. Mooonbase HQ (conveniently located on The Moon) requests your help to rescue every single cow from the perils of planet earth to the safety. Will you turn your back on those who need you most or will you herd up and get dirty in the paddocks in a battle against a global cowspiracy?  

Do you love co-op? So do we! Working with friend makes light work of challenges and conflicts when airlifting our girls up towards the Mooonbase, so we’re calling it a Cow-op. Go into battle for your cattle, terminate the bad guys and get rewarded, well, for just being buddies. Share your screen and get seen!

Ever wanted to herd up in the Wild West or visit Russia? From rodeos to grazing, we’ve got you covered. Our locations provide you with everything you need to have the best fun. We’re constantly updating our world and we love to share stories, meet new friends and find new goodies as we battle to save our cows from the perils on Earth! 

Looking for cows in Russia? Make it a quick visit! Thick woodland hides enemies with ease. Beware of manic matryoshkas who are hell bent on introducing you to their sassy sisters. Bungling bears on a mission to tear up the herd are fast but stupid. 

The dancing Cossacks flip and whizz their way through the woods, their boots as sharp as knives. Look out for the Gopnik, they’ve got fists and they’re spoiling for a fight. Time to leave town! Get a mooove on! 

New York City is the bustling hub of smoggy streets and noisy nightmares – no place for a cow! Towering buildings loom, casting scary shadows on our frightened herd. From mad scientists roaming the blocks looking for trouble to Jersey girls tottering the sidewalks, it’s either make a dash, or become a handbag!

Collecting cows can be a handful, wouldn’t it be nice to park your sisters in well-appointed exclusive cattle shed? Start with a shack and get your bling on. From fancy stalls to glitter bombs, and multi-colored dancefloor to rival any disco, you and your cows can live in the lap of luxury. 

Buy, earn or trade for the chicest pads, then, when you’re ready to socialize, invite your friends over for the hottest ticket in town.

An evening dress, a bullet belt, a pair of Wellington boots. Our Cowstomisation mode will give life your to your scared cow. Jazz her up, dress her down, but get her looking her very best for battle. Our customisation is not just for your cow though, want to customise your enemies? 

You can with our unique tool. With additional skins for screen and UI you’ve got everything you need to look absolutely stunning, at all times.  

Our game is multi-platform versioned for universal play! Whether you’re on the web or on your phone, we’ve got you covered:

iOS (iPhones + iPads); Android (Phones + Tablets); Apple TV; Nintendo Switch; Web Version (in-browser play or via social networks supporting The Cow Game); PlayStation 4 and X-BOX

Until then you can rely on a unified leaderboard for wherever you are. No matter what platform you’re playing on, our cows need YOU!

We’re currently focused on the development process. We are programming levels for the Wild West and improving the gameplay features. The art team is working on the design of new enemies, levels and skins. We are looking forward to your feedback and support.

We’re passionate about games and gaming. As a company, we’re made up of many industry veterans and experts who have come together to make something really special. We are mostly self-funded, but Kickstarter gives us a great opportunity to create something that we know our community wants and needs from a quality game.

We’re aware of our competitors, so it makes sense to bring you a game that we feel, has not been tried before. We are bringing comedy, culture and a sense that the way we live is changing. We’ve wrapped up those elements in a fun game presentation that will keep you hooked and entertained in an immersive social experience.

We are keen to get our community involved in the development of the game. To do that, we’re inviting you to back us as we bring to you an exciting and frankly hilarious take on a side-scrolling classic. We are keen to get our backers involved so that you can develop and feed us back on our evolution as we journey towards success.   

Risks and challenges

We are well aware of the complexity of software, particularly game development.

This is our first Kickstarter ever, but our team members have been in the IT business for over a decade and have delivered countless big-scale projects (not just games, but also web and desktop applications, server architecture). We have the expertise required to make it happen.

We are being realistic with our budget and time requirements and we are sure we will be able to deliver great experience The Cow Game deserves. We've been working for over half a year now in order to create the foundation of the game, analyzing the development risks and doing further planning. For the past 6 months, the whole project has been financed solely by our company's founder / CEO.

We are willing to hear all the feedback from our backers and incorporate the improvements and ideas into the game, make them feel like they are part of our team.
