Like a wolf in sheeps clothing… only not.
The highly respected and long lived independent developers, Team 17, has announced that their brand new title Flockers will finally be making its debut appearance on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 later in the month. For those of you who can’t wait until that time, the game is available right now via Steam through the early access program.
Team 17 are the folks responsible for the smash hit multi-platform phenomenon, Worms. So it should come as no surprise that their most recent game is set to continue the legacy of absolutely pitch black humour and utter insanity. Flockers is a new spin on the tried and proven A to B puzzle game format, very much in the vain of Lemmings the player takes control of a flock of sheep and must guide them to safety through a number of “dark, heinous puzzles” and if you’re good enough, 6 secret levels.
Gamers in Europe can find the game at retail and via digital download from their preferred platform as of September, those of us in the US will sadly have to wait a bit longer until September 23rd when the game is made available via digital download.
Team 17 has also revealed that they have plans to bring the early access brawler, Overruled!, to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Overruled is in development by the indie dev team Dlala Studios.
