I really like the concept, and the sheep AI makes it challenging and fun. I got stuck pretty quickly though, so maybe it could be a bit less difficult or at least have a less steep difficulty curve. I think it's really clever that you turned it into a bit of a puzzle game with the different enclosures. Nice work!

It worked quite well and I like the idea. I wish the pace was slightly faster (faster turning and moving for the dogs and sheep), but that's nit-picky. Very good entry overall :)

Nice work! The sheep art was really nice and the gameplay was really enjoyable. Well done! :)

Just making my way through the jam checking out all the other sheep games. Good stuff! 

Definitely tricky though. Tuning the sheep behavior... the struggle is real! Nice work :-)

pretty good idea, just a bit finicky

Thanks. It may seem like the sheep are moving at random, but there are several rules they follow. I just couldn't quite get the right balance of the different rules' weights that produce the final vector they will choose. However, I have set up a config system on the back end, so I might play around with that after the jam ends. :)
