A small comedy biblical game about a sheep, June 26, 2019
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

In this game, you experience a biblical scenario: one of your sheep has escaped.

The game consists entirely of chasing the sheep, with a couple of puzzles.

The map is small, with 5 or so important rooms and then a sequence of minor rooms. The main puzzle is pretty hard to guess, even if you think of the old-testament related clue.

Simple take on a Biblical story, August 23, 2014
by Jason Lautzenheiser (Navarre, Ohio)

This was a quick and simple take on the Biblical parable of The Lost Sheep. Fairly linear and puzzles are simple, though could perhaps be clued better as some solutions were a bit of a stretch and took some guessing at the author's intent. Hint system built in thought that would keep you from getting stuck for too long.

Having finished the game, I went back through to try out some of the AMUSING stuff that was mentioned. I realize it was meant to be funny and it is outside the main story line, but some of it really breaks that fourth wall. (Spoiler - click to show)The reference to Guy Fawkes and the giraffe really did it in for me.

Overall, not bad and a quick game if you only have a few minutes.
