a game about sheep

by Nilq - Compo Entry

As a self-sustaining sheep-farmer being visited by evil people wanting you to share your sheep with le government, you have to protect your *farm*.

This you must do in a totally self-sustainable way by trimming sheep, buying new ones - from God("no evolution. no bullshit. 400$") - and **of course** trim - to sell more stuff - and shoot the evil intruders.


Game made when tired. All hail coffee.


MOve with arrow-keys
Shoot/cut with 'C'

Buy with 'X' and 'Z'


Run using Love -

... executables to come ... I think

Fun game, even if the connection with the theme is not obvious :)

It seems that an effective tactic is to bring down the amount of attackers to one, and then focus on farming. Perhaps the "wave"-system could be replaced with spawn over time system :)

I love the pixel art, and especially the small touches (like the fact that the invaders also have a "shaved"-state, with their appearance changing accordingly).

You should probably make binaries for the different platforms (or at least mention that the game was made in the Löve frame-work, and include a link to the page), if you want people to try out the game :) Downloading separate frameworks is just so much work, especially if you have to track them down first ;)

It seems that your source-link accidentally points to the game itself, rather than to the source-code?

Very good idea and art of the game is really very cool

I like the art style, impressive amount of detail for a compo game. The concept is simple, but well executed.

Great job, I löve it! :)

I like the theme of the game, not sure how it relates to one room though. I like the sim idea, and wish it had a bit more breath and maybe some music/audio.

Fun game though, nice job!

Challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
