The quirky shape-shifting metroidvania, Sheepo, will be released onto Steam on August 26th 2020. Along with this date announcement, a new launch trailer for Sheepo has also been released.
Sheepo is a pacifistic metroidvania where you collect and shape-shift into any creature you find. Each creature has its own unique movement options and controls, which forces the player to adapt, often juggling between several forms in order to reach particularly difficult spots in the game.
Setting itself apart from other games in the genre, Sheepo contains no standard combat- instead, your goal is to simply explore, collect, and transform; eventually saving the mysterious planet, Cebron, in the process.
Storyline: It’s Sheepo’s first day on the job at an intergalactic species database. Your first task? To visit an uncharted planet and save all its living creatures from extinction! It might seem like a lot of work for a single day, but thankfully a day on Planet Cebron lasts 8000 earth days.
