Sheepo is a quirky, pacifistic shape-shifting Metroidvania

There’s a neat new Metroidvania coming soon to Steam called Sheepo. Unlike many similar games, this one is completely non-violent. Instead, it focuses on exploration and shape-shifting.

Sheepo is a sheep-like thing exploring a strange planet. You collect creatures that you find along the way and shape-shift into them. Each of these creatures has its own abilities and unique movement. Players, dig, fly, and teleport across the different landscapes to reach new spots in the game.

In order to transform into a creature, you first have to come across their unhatched egg. It just so happens that these eggs are diligently guarded by that species’ queen, which acts as a boss. But once you collect them, you will be able to reach areas of the planet that you couldn’t before.

Sounds pretty neat, right? Sheepo launches on August 26 on PC via Steam.

Check out the launch trailer below!
