Team17's Flockers coming to Steam Early Access in Q2 2014

Team17's new game, Flockers, turns the studio's Worms franchise on its head: Players help sheep escape from years of captivity at the hands of their tyrannical worm overlords, the company announced today with a teaser trailer.

According to Team17, Flockers combines the gameplay of Lemmings — guiding animals through a series of deadly obstacles — with a steampunk aesthetic and humorous gore. You can see the gore part of that in action in the "MEat the Flockers" trailer above, in which the sheep's curiosity is their downfall.

Flockers is currently in alpha, and Team17 plans to release the title on Windows PC via Steam Early Access in Q2 2014. The studio announced the game, its first new IP in almost 13 years, last month and is currently showing the title at EGX Rezzed. You can check out nine screenshots in the gallery below.
