Disobedient Sheep is a frantic and lighthearted sheep herd'em'up for two to four players. Play as adorable sheepdogs and guide your hapless flock to victory in four different game-modes by avoiding anvils, dodging dynamite, and bailing on boulders. This is a small, unique game. Ideal for short-sessions, young children, rowdy friends, older folks and non-gamers. The game has an over-the-top cartoony style, and because the controls are simple --- the only input is a single analogue stick --- two players share a controller. At events this goes down particularly well with younger children (8 -- 14) and their (often non-gamer) parents. Sheep flock and herd realistically, following models based on acamdeic research and tweaked for game-feel.


Herding sheep in real-life is exhausting, difficult, and sometimes hilarious. Inspired by afternoons teaching overexcited primary-school children how to work together to corral a group of flighty sheep, disobedient sheep aims to recreate this chaos without the muddy field.


  • Four unique game modes, in co-op and versus.
  • Take control of four adorable doggos.
  • Advanced herding and flocking AI
  • Controller sharing - two players with one controller; four players with two
