Ewe of the Falklands is TerrorBull Game's FIRST EVER COMPUTER GAME! Yeeeeaaah! It's also rather shit. But please don't let a small thing like that put you off. In it you play a pacifist sheep trying to bring peace to the Falklands with the help (possibly) of Sean Connery.
"Ewe of the Falklands is a choose-your-own-adventure type game about the Falklands War from the point of view of a pacifist sheep. Rather predictably, it ended up being about the futility of war. But more than that, it is about the futility of being a sheep trying to stop that war."
About Ewe of The Falklands
Recently we discovered an active group of friendly, independent game designers right here in Cambridge. It was quite a surprise. Like finding out there are people living in the disused tunnels of the New York subway system. Suddenly, there was this thriving subculture right under our feet.
Although these gamers are mostly computer types, we quickly learned there was plenty of common ground, so we attended one of their regular "game jam" weekends at the beginning of the month. Basically this involves shutting 40 geeks upstairs at the local cafe for four days, giving them a few "themes" to respond to and seeing what comes out the other end. Turns out a whole bunch of weird is what comes out the other end. Here's our offering, working on the theme The 80s.
As always, we are very interested to hear your feedback. It helps us improve our games, but it also encourages us. So, careful.
