UK games publisher, Feral Interactive is gearing up to release its "artificial stupidity" game, Sheep, at the end of May.

In the game, players need to herd sheep from one level to the other, but this is made difficult by the stupidity of the player's herd.

The story line for the title describes the sheep as space travellers sent to Earth from the other side of the stars, on a mission to pose as "stupid, peace-loving creatures to study the habitat".

It goes on: "Now the sheep ancestors have returned to reclaim their lost flock."

UK pricing is yet to be announced.
