A Lot of Sheep Will Be Brutally Slaughtered in Team17's Flockers
Last month, Worms developer Team17 announced that it would be developing its first new IP in over a decade. At the time, all we were given was a name (Flockers) and logo. Today, at EGX Rezzed, Team17 has officially unveiled what the game is about: "a twisted blend of Lemmings' inspired gameplay and Tim Burton style macabre, all topped off with a dose of that classic Worms humour!"
If you've ever played a Worms game, I'm sure you're familiar with the multitude of sheep-based weaponry. Well, those sheep have had enough. "Escaping the tyrannical Worms, the flock must dodge their way past all manner of lethal machinery and traps as they negotiate their path through the confinement of the Worms weapons factory and onwards to pastures green." As you can see from the teaser trailer below, the Worms humor is certainly intact, but be sure to check out the screenshots below to get a taste for the actual gameplay.
Flockers will be coming to PC via Steam Early Access in Q2 2014, and will be playable over the next three days at EGX Rezzed in Birmingham, UK.
