Milkmaid of the Milky Way

Poetry in space.

I thought I'd try adventure games again,

So I purchased this one up from a sale.

At two hours long, should not cause me much pain.

I can finish before the moonrise, pale.


You play a girl atop a fjord so green,

With cattle she milks to make butter and cheese.

'Til a flying ship takes them in the sheen

Of its magic beam, locked up without keys.


The story, music, and art are all quite nice.

You are a hero in this tragic tale.

I was even moved to tears once or twice.

And challenging puzzles—I did not fail.


The dialogue is told in rhyme resplendent.

Hence this review sonnet. I recommend it.

Milkmaid of the Milky Way was included in itch.io's recent Indie bundle for Palestinian Aid.
