Team 17's upcoming sadistic puzzler, Flockers, is an interesting breath of fresh air and a new perspective on the Worms universe. Rather than unleashing herds of explosive sheep onto our enemies, we now have to guide the hapless livestock through the Worms' weapon factory with gameplay halfway between Lemmings and an industrial meat grinder. It's... baaaaaad to the bone?
Having tested the latest build at Rezzed 2014, I can confidently state that Flockers is shaping up nicely. And that I suck at it.
Still, you'll soon be able to suck at it too, because Flockers is coming to Steam Early Access on May 6th! The beta version will include 25 levels at launch, but ship with the full level editor so the community can start creating even more challenging content. It'll set you back £11.99.
Don't understand Early Access? Here's a crash course and a cautionary tale for gamers and developers alike.
