Astro Ranch will be out before the end of February, developer Tag Games has revealed in a comment posted to the game's opening cinematic we posted today.

Paul Farley, managing director for Tag Games, confirmed that the game is nearing submission to Apple with an eye for release the week of February 21.

He also announced a special launch price of £1.79 and a limited edition item for the first 50,000 people who download a copy.

Borrowing from the Animal Crossing formula, the game has you mingling with aliens after crash-landing on a planet deep in space.

There's a bit of Harvest Moon in it too, as you're tasked with harvesting galactic produce from your space age farm and tending to livestock from out of this world.

Astro Ranch will be available for iPhone and iPod touch in late February at an introductory price of £1.79/$2.99.
