GraphSim Herding Sheep to North America
9:47 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

While GraphSim is known for hard-core flight sims or RPG's like Baldur's Gate and Summoner, it seems they're picking up the tab on an entirely new type of game, Sheep. While the UK-based Feral announced a while back that they would be bringing the game to the Mac, it seems to be finally ready for shipment, and GraphSim will be handling the North American distribution. GraphSim's president Jeff Morgan explains the situation:

We are just delivering the first copies to distribution now. The publisher is Feral and we are the N. America distributor. We also handle tech support here.
Sheep was originally a console title, and shares many similarities in gameplay with the old-school favorite, Lemmings. GraphSim's page has it listed for under $35, and the system requirements seem reasonable:
System Requirements: PowerPC processor 233 MHz or faster (works with iMac), Mac OS 8.6, 64 MB RAM, 100 MB free hard disk space, QuickTime 4.0


Recommended: Power PC processor 300MHz or faster, Mac OS 9.x, 96 MB RAM, 600 MB free hard disk space, QuickTime 5.0 (included on disc)

So Sheep fans should head over now to GraphSim's store and place your order. Sheep is shipping out now in North America, which means Feral should be updating their site soon with word on European distribution.
