Milkmaid of the Milky Way Review:
Milkmaid of the Milky Way is a story about moving into the unknown, breaking free from the past, it's a story about age, life, death and time - but most of all it's a story about finding your own place in the universe. Part of what makes point and click adventures so great is the artwork, this game is no exception. Story is pretty good; the ryhming made it feel more picturesque. There's also a surprising amount of mini-cutscenes, especially toward the conclusion of the game, giving it a satisfying feel. Short and charming adventure game which also hits the sweet spot in terms of difficulty. Easy recommendation if you're looking for a compact, unique experience.
