    I think that this game would do better if it had more decisions to make - there is really only one choice you have - which is to drag a male sheep onto a female sheep, and it's not very engaging to do that repeatedly. The graphics are some of the best I've seen so far though.

    Wow, those graphics were really awesome, really liked the style of the game. Just like the 'olala' sound of the sheep :)
    I did think the game was a bit too easy, but still an awesome job on the concept.

    Milo: I agree. Some sort of power ups that need to breed into the sheep may come in a post-compo version.

    Sanguine: Thanks! How far did you make it? It gets really hard around day 12-15.

    my score : 12 days ! It seems that sheep gender are randomized on the morning ? I can't understand why because one part of the strategy is to ensure that you have an equal number of male and female.
    I like the graphics but I think the wolf animation could have been better. Animate the mouth could have help to figure where's the eat bounding box.
    nice entry :)

    13 days for me!

    I really like the 'olala' sounds :-)

    Oh la la!

    The idea of this game is pretty neat. That said, it needs a lot more complexity for it to work.
