Sheepo physical

Sheepo, the Metroidvania platformer from Top Hat Studios, has now been confirmed for physical release. Limited Run Games will be offering the title in a boxed format as part of its distribution line.

Sheepo made its original debut on Switch in October 2021. Fans have only been able to pick it up on the eShop, so this is the first time it will make a physical appearance.

Below is an overview of the game with more details:

You are Sheepo, and it’s your first day on the job at an intergalactic species database. Your first task? To visit an uncharted planet and save all its living creatures from extinction! It might seem like a lot of work for a single day, but thankfully a day on Planet Cebron lasts 8000 earth days. Unfortunately, your pay is based on Cebron days.

Sheepo is a metroidvania, but contains no standard combat. Instead, gameplay is based on platforming and exploration. With the collection of each creature, Sheepo is able to dig, fly, and teleport across an interconnected series of landscapes, uncovering hidden shrines, old ruins, and strange characters.

To capture a creature, Sheepo must find their unhatched egg, which happen to be highly guarded by that species “queen” (aka, a boss) With each egg Sheepo collects, you gain the ability to transform into that creature on contact, and explore the deeper reaches of the planets sprawling environment

Key Features

  • Tight platforming with variety. Play as both Sheepo, and the variety of creatures you come in contact with. Gameplay remains fresh as you consistently learn the moves of each creature!
  • Traverse a sprawling landscape with tons of hidden rooms and characters. Explore old mines, an abandoned mall, lush forests, the dingy sewer system, and much more.
  • 75+ hidden feathers to collect (the planet’s currency), which can be spent at the last remaining shop in DeadMall.
  • Non-linear gameplay. As you explore, discover eggs, and gain more transformations. Sheepo’s world quickly opens up to allow you to make your own route.
  • Meet the locals and discover what’s happening to planet Cebron

Pre-orders for the physical version of Sheepo open on July 12, 2022. Limited Run Games will have it here.
