Sheep Set to Stray into Stores in September

While the big news on Feral's site was about Black & White, the UK company also provided an update on Sheep. It seems the title is very close to completion, with an expected release date of next month. This title has received good reviews on the PC and console versions, as it has quirky characters and good gameplay puzzle elements. Old school gamers may find similarities to the classic Lemmings. Here's an excerpt from the Feral site with more info on what Sheep is all about:
The aim of the game is to guide, lead, shove or throw as many Sheep as possible back to their celestial ancestors. To do this you have to move them through 7 increasingly hazardous worlds each with four grass-bitingly tense levels, all the time saving them from the perils of electric fences, shark-infested ice cream and combine harvesters.With the mindlessness of the sheep, your control lies in the hands of one of four available herders. We're looking forward to the title, and will bring you more Sheep info in the coming weeks.
You start each level with a flock of Sheep, and the aim is to "persuade" the Sheep to navigate their way to the level Exit while keeping as many of the little flockers alive as possible. Apart from wrestling with the sheer mind-boggling brainlessness of your charges, there are huge numbers of hazards to avoid and obstacles to overcome, and if you are sharp, quite a few juicy bonuses to be found.
