A random game concept about sheep and "teamplay"

Talk about anything and everything game dev-related here!
Here is a random game concept.

Don't even wonder why I came up with this idea.


The game would be kinda similar to Lemmings (deadly traps and a bunch of stupid creatures) with some endless running stuff (or not endless, whatever). Each sheep would be controlled by a single player.
The goal is to keep your sheep alive as long as possible, by dodging, jumping, slowing or accelerating.
The twist/original thing is that some traps are forced to kill some sheep before the other can sheep pass it (something like Deaths in the list here : http://www.venbrux.com/freeware.php ). Some other traps would just crush the middle or the end of the horde.
I think it could be really fun to see how people react.


Edit: If someone is interrested you know what to do!

Sounds like Flockers, but the multiplayer aspect could be neat.

I usually have some confidence in my ideas but this one is just not a game I would create by myself. If someone is interested, you can make your own game using this idea (just tell me before please).

And yes now that you mention it it looks like Flockers X) (fact is every awesome concept I imagine has already some equivalent, but not as awesome. Yet it is never completely unique. That's boring)

I tried this game and yeah, the concept i wrote above is somewhat like this but much more lemmings-like.
Their concept is interessing but sadly it is only a short flash game. :|

If you're going to have a game about sheep, it should be a full-on RTS with ranked multiplayer and esports features. Because, you know, come on.

That could be fun somehow.

I'm going to try to do a game like that during a game jam in my engineer school ;)
