Til Cows Tear Us Apart is a fun little interactive fiction game available on Kongregate. The story is simple and choice based with certain decisions impacting the way that events unfold. The player takes on the role of a young outlaw named Enora alongside her alien friend Quanee. Both women have just stolen a herd of cows from one of the most ruthless men in the galaxy and intend to sell them for a nice payday on a distant world. With multiple endings to see, a few achievements to unlock and an excellent soundtrack it's a nice way to spend an afternoon. Just try not to lose all of your cows...

  • Action Girl: Both characters are space outlaws and some situations give the player the option of fighting. In one of the endings Enora even joins the military after losing Quanee.
  • Aliens Steal Cattle: Though it was her partner's idea to do it.
  • Bald Woman: Quanee, though its unknown if she shaved her head or if her entire species is just bald.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Depending on the choices made different characters might show up to assist the protagonists when they get confronted by bounty hunters due to becoming the most wanted people in the universe.
  • Bittersweet Ending: At least a few of the endings. For example, its possible to lose all your cows before making it to your destination, robbing you of your big payday but allowing both characters to live. In another ending Quanee sacrifices herself to save Enora's life which leads to her surviving but falling into a depression and joining the ongoing war with a possible death wish to meet her end in battle.

  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Quanee, who is some sort of grayish-blue alien with a tail called an Ahopaloose.
  • Multi Boobage: When the pair get stopped at a checkpoint one of the options to get past has Enora claim that the two are on their way to entertain the soldiers of an ongoing space war. After asking to see their license the following exchange happens:
    Enora: Quanee, show your boobs.
    Quanee: What?
    Enora: You heard him, he wants to see our "license". Go on, show your boobs.
    Quanee: But why me?
    Enora: You've got more of 'em.
    Quanee: *sigh* *unbuttons shirt*
  • Multiple Endings: There are several different endings that players can unlock depending on the choices they make at critical moments.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: If the player has Enora convince Kasper to agree to a duel he shoots her on the spot. This enrages Quanee to the point that she immediately massacres several of Kasper's men before killing the man himself. By the time she comes back on board her own ship she is covered in blood.

  • Shout-Out: Several. Some of the endings include Blazing Saddles and A Fistful of Dollars. The game also gives the player a "See you Space Cowgirls" achievement when they win, regardless of ending.
  • Space Western: Imagine Cowboy Bebop as an old school interactive pixel game.
