A downloadable game for Windows

Lamb to Slaughter is a game that was made for the 2016 Global Game Jam.

There are two playable characters, played on 1 keyboard, a Sheep and a Shepherd. The Sheep must escape (to the right hand side) whilst evading the shepherd who is trying to take the "lamb to slaughter" on the left hand side of the screen.

The sheep uses the controls W,A and D whilst the Shepherd uses the Up, Left and Right arrow keys along with Right Control to activate the Crook abaility.

This version has been updated from feedback received since the GameJam.
