Press release:
Welcome to the intergalactic species database – today’s your first day at the job, and we’ve got an assignment for you: to visit an uncharted planet and save all its living creatures from extinction!

Top Hat Studios announces that the pacifist metroidvania “Sheepo“, by indie developer Kyle Thompson, is coming to PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox on October 20th for $10.99/€10.99/£9.89, and is already available for pre-order on Switch and Xbox!

The game is also published as a true native, next-gen game with special features on Playstation 5 and Xbox Series XS.

Sheepo is a quirky metroidvania platformer with a unique twist: its gameplay doesn’t contain standard combat. You play as Sheepo, a shape-shifting sheep-alien zoologist who is tasked with exploring the uncharted planet Cebron and collecting samples of its living species, so as to save them from extinction with the upcoming death of their planet’s star.

To capture a creature Sheepo must find their unhatched egg, which happens to be guarded by that species’ queen… Sheepo was first released on Steam on August 26th, 2020 to critical acclaim, with a 99% approval user on Steam, and media outlets such as Screen Rant praising the game for its immersive and touching gameplay with a review score of 4.5/5: “It’s a gift to play such an immersive and transporting independent game that eschews intricate ambitions to instead deliver such a consistent and artful feel”.

With each egg that you collect, you’ll gain the ability to transform into that creature on contact, which in turn will help you explore deeper reaches of the planet – digging, flying and teleporting across an interconnected series of levels, filled with lush landscapes, hidden shrines and old ruins, and strange inhabitants with their own stories to tell. Will you manage to save the creatures and inhabitants of Cebron before its star destroys the planet?

Sounds like an awful lot on your plate for your first day on the job. The good news is that a Cebronian day lasts 8,000 Earth days! The bad news is that you get paid by the Cebron day.
