The Cow is the assumed name of two characters in the Rusty Lake series, appearing in two of the games.
Cube Escape: The MillEdit
In 1972, the animal is found on the top floor. As the Old Woman wants warm milk to knit an item for the player, the cow must be milked, but first it has to be fed.
There is a flower pot with a single blade of grass on the top floor, which can be fertilized with Harvey's poop and watered from the pot downstairs. After being fed and placing the pot below its udders, the cow can now be milked. The four teats have symbols on them, which must be pulled in the right order for milk to come out.
Rusty Lake Paradise Edit
Another cow appears in 1796 living outside the gates of Paradise Island, owned by the Eilander Family. It makes its appearance during the Fifth Plague, as one of the eponymous diseased livestock. A pattern of boils appear on its side, which much be selected in the correct order until the cow's skin is clear and a small mark appears. The cow can then be cut open and have some meat extracted to be processed into a Rusty Lake Burger. Milk can also be taken from its udders, to be made into a cheese topping for the burger.
Sometime before the Sixth Plague begins, the cow dies. The cow's skull is found outside the gates. When the player feeds the skull some grass, it bleeds from its eye socket. The blood can then be collected to pay the toll to open the front gate.
- Its death, beheading, is similar to the deer at the Cabin in Cube Escape: Case 23.
- The Cow from The Mill appears in Rusty Lake: Roots, seen through the telescope in 1891. It stands grazing in the field outside of the Mill.
