What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sheep Game is being created by one person which makes creating a 4 player party game quite hard. I've tried operating all four dogs at once, it's not pretty. I firmly believe there is an awesome local multiplayer game in this idea (sheep herding) but I need community support to help me realise that.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Sheep Game is expected to be in early access for approximately two months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The first release will be fairly close to what's available now. Areas that will improve:

  • Animation on the animals to give them more personality.
  • Improved balance in the gameplay.
  • Improved one player mode.
  • Refined control scheme for sharing controllers and keyboard.

Following the initial release some additional game modes will be added that may include:
  • Racing sheep around a Super Sprint style track.
  • Sheep pool (guide the sheep down the pockets of a giant pool table).
  • Proper co-op where you can team up to herd sheep.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version contains all the features mentioned in the "About this game" section of the page.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase when the game leaves early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I need the community to help me realise the potential in the game. Unlocking the fun factor of herding sheep with your friends requires me to involve as many people playing the game as possible.

I'll be here to answer questions, explore ideas and quickly implement anything that makes the game more fun as a party game (as long as it's G rated).”

About This Game

The sequel to Sheep Game is coming later this year. Wishlist Too Many Sheep today!

Sheep Game is a couch-based multiplayer game best played with 2, 3 or 4 people.

The game features four fields to herd your sheep in. To win the game, you need to win three rounds. To win a round you need to herd three sheep into the central pen and hold them there for 3 seconds. Controls are straightforward, point the analogue stick in the direction you want your dog to run, and it will follow your command. If you pick up a power-up, you can trigger it with the action button.

Will you play defensively and block your opponents? Or will you become a top dog by rounding up your sheep in record time using your speed and agility!?

So grab your friends and challenge them to fast and frenzied sheep herding.

Family friendly

Sheep Game is a family-friendly game to be enjoyed by young pups and old dogs alike. It is free from any violence or swearing.

Best played with friends

Whilst you can play on your own to sharpen your skills, Sheep Game is best played with friends gathered around. Up to four people can play head-to-head.

Don't have four controllers? No problem; Sheep Game supports four players using two controllers.

Simple controls but hard to master

Sheep Game is easy to pick up, you'll have your dog running around in no time, but keeping those sheep under control will take time to master.

Break the deadlock with power ups

Having trouble with your rivals? Use a well timed power up to freeze them in their tracks or give your self a speed boost to tip the balance.
