Flockers: new IP from Team17

Well that sure is a thing. I'm assuming they're saving the details for Rezzed, but it looks like some kind of puzzle game.

Hooray! They're finally doing a non-Worms game! :D

Which is um... apparently set in the Worms universe. But hey, good enough. :?
Worm Mad - is he a mad worm or a person mad about worms? I'll give you a clue - it's not the first one.

I'm glad they're doing something different this time around, I might actually pick up this one. Of course, I'll have to wait and see how it turns out, I definitely won't be pre-ordering any T17 product since what happened with Clan Wars...

Joke aside, it basically is a reskinned Lemmings. Well they did good work with the remake, maybe this will work out as well.

This game does look unspeakably violent. What's the point? Do you have to kill all the Flockers or save them? I don't understand!

Save them. It's basically a gorier version of Lemmings, only with sheep.

So yeah, the gameplay might be fun, but I'm not a big blood 'n guts fan either.

Flockers was released today apparently in Steam Early Access. http://store.steampowered.com/app/260330/

It looks like an actually good game (can't say for sure), but what's with the ridiculous amounts of blood all of a sudden? Worms never had anything like that, and it's set in the Worms universe...

Whatever. I'm probably not getting it anyway.

EDIT: There's options for turning it off, so you have that I guess.

All this complaining about the blood is a little surreal given how much the old forum rejoiced in gore. :P

That said, I mean, yeah, weird.

I mean, I don't really mind it in games like Team Fortress 2 or Terraria, but in Flockers it's just... ludicrous amounts. Everyone thinks differently... and also I should stop complaining as there is an option to turn it off. Goodnight.

I don't know if I can be bothered with another clunky T17 game, but I don't see an issue with the blood. It was dumb when things like the Carmageddon series switching to green zombie blood happened, just to appease society. Indie games have succeeded in making blood cool again. They Bleed Pixels, Super Meat Boy, and probably many more.

I didn't imagine so many people here would have issues with the gore, if anything it's a good thing because it shows that the people at Team17 aren't afraid of being offensive anymore, just like old times. Although I'm a bit surprised at such a sudden turn, since they always insisted about being family friendly and all.

That said it's still essentially Lemmings with sheep, set in the Worms universe. Not exactly a new original IP per say, but that's a start I guess.

hi vinh, those two 1-post posters before you were apparently just clever spammers (reported), but yeah, it's quite a strange move from T17.
