Apparently the press release mentioned below wasn't what they want to send out. Here is Swen's comment on it:

Somehow a draft of the press release got released, and so the wrong information spread. We didn't really plan on releasing on cow simulator but now it looks like we'll have no choice wink Stream is on thursday - bring your notepads, it's going to be a real tutorial.

The stream he mentions is on twitch.tv on the 26th of June at 18.00 CET.
