You're space cowgirl Enora Bey, and you and your alien lady love Quanee have a ship full of stolen cows. Cows are worth a fortune on Truxton, but it'll be tough to make it. Listen to lonesome radio, pick up a little mind-altering substance on the way, deal with ex-girlfriends and telepathic border guards in this smooth, special story game.
As the story unfolds in Til Cows Tear Us Apart, you make decisions at key points that affect your success as a law-dodging pair of doomed speed racers zipping around the galaxy listening to beautiful music (the game's soundtrack is so great -- listen on Bandcamp!) Fall in love with your sidekick, risk your lives for one another, make out in the back of the ship. The cows don't mind.
There are several very different routes through the story, and Til Cows Tear Us Apart keeps track of different encounters you unlock in the Achievements area. The game is easy to play -- click, read, and pick options -- and free in your browser. Turn that radio up and cruise over the event horizon with me.
Til Cows Tear Us Apart is by Pierre Corbinais, and was ported to web by Red Jenny.

Between work, family obligations, and just getting to bed at a decent hour, we all have a lot on our plates these days. So, it’s easy for things like grooming and skincare to never be a high-priority issue. That is until they become a high priority issue. Like when your face constantly breaks out. Or […]
Today’s teachers extol the virtues of hands-on learning, the method of helping students, particularly the youngest children, learn through basic doing. From trial-and-error methods to practice honing their emerging skills, youngsters can soak up a world of learning opportunities when their developing minds are unleashed.

“The guitar has a kind of grit and excitement possessed by nothing else.” – Brian May If someone was assigned to turn raw sexiness into an actual, physical real-world object, it would have to be a guitar. The sound. The fit. The swagger. The allure. The longing. It’s all right there in 38 inches and […]
