More On: Divinity: Original Sin Cow Simulator

The suddenly popular *random non-threatening animal* simulator genre has another player: Cow Simulator.  It comes packed in with Divinity: Original Sin.  I've watched the Cow Simulator trailer and still don't know what to make of it.  All I know is that it was built with the Divinity Engine Toolkit.  

I'll never understand PC gamers.  If you don't either, then maybe the Cow Simulator tutorial video will help, but that video is over an hour long.  

For more details, follow the jump.
