Worms developer Team 17 has finally lifted the lid on its new IP Flockers, which is described as “a twisted blend of Lemmings’ inspired gameplay and Tim Burton style macabre, all topped off with a dose of that classic Worms humor!”
The game was first revealed back in February at a PlayStation Open Day in Leamington Spa, England. At the time Team17 MD Debbie Bestwick described Flockers as the “most important game we’ve worked on in over a decade.”
“Held for years within the evil thrall of the Worms, the sheep are finally making a dash for freedom,” the game’s description reads. “Escaping the tyrannical Worms, the flock must dodge their way past all manner of lethal machinery and traps as they negotiate their path through the confinement of the Worms weapons factory and onwards to pastures green.”
Flockers will be available via Steam Early Access in Q2 of this year.
