Shaun The Sheep Farmageddon is out in cinemas. Are ewe ready for the video game tie in? Home Sheep Home Farmageddon Party Edition, just got a fun looking trailer and a full release.
Herded onto Nintendo Switch and PC by Aardman and Mobile Pie, this is the latest in a line of Shaun the Sheep games and the first that I can remember coming to Nintendo Switch. While this doesn’t tread entirely new ground, the game sheers clear of being a total movie cash cow and brings together a bunch of existing content and some brand new challenges. Players picking up this title for their flock will find a range of unusual and interesting challenges to get Shaun’s family and friends home to the farm.
To navigate this series of obstacles, players will be able to take on solo challenges, multiplayer party games, and co-op head to heads as they run jump, and baaaaaarn storm their way through each area. This mutton bashing fun takes a cute bunch of sheep, up to four players, and pits them against each other in games involving lemming style level traversal, hay stacking, volleyball, and even sends a few to the moon.
It’s all in good fun and the gorgeous 2D animation reflects the overall tone. It might be a step away from the traditional Aardman aesthetic but things still retain that quirky British eccentricity that Shaun always has. If you’re looking for something a little more leftfield than Mario kart 8 for your party and you think that ewe can help Shaun get home then Home Sheep Home Farmageddon Party Edition is already available for the Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop and PC via Steam. It should set you back around $9.99. That’s less than the cost of seeing the movie tie in. for more details on this cute creation, you can also check out the official website now.
