Flockers doesn’t really have a proper storyline to it. You could perhaps frame it as some kind of socio-political commentary about the farming industry and globalisation’s effect on how we must make compromises to meet demands of a growing population. But it isn’t. There’s sheep, it’s a gruesome industrialist assembly line of some sort, and you must get your sheep to the end of the area with as little collateral as possible.
Instead, the game offers a simple premise. It’s essentially the fast paced puzzle solving of Lemmings mixed with the dark humour of the Worms franchise, with tinges of the Oddworld universe. It’s a compelling mix, I’ll give you that. And thankfully it comes together rather well too.
