Deep Sheep

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (251 votes)

In Deep Sheep, the player controls an alarm clock that is desperately trying to wake it's owner out of a crazy dream. The sheep in the dream, however, are trying equally hard to stop the alarm clock from ruining their only time of day to truly shine, and will do just about anything to keep the alarm clock silent. The alarm clock has only the elements of its owner's dream to help wake him up.

Brief Play Description: 

The player uses W, A, S, D, Q, and E keys to move and turn the alarm clock. The goal is to use any obstacle in the environment, as well as physics, to knock the sheep away from the alarm clock so that it may wake its owner, who is laying asleep in a bed near the center of the game.
