Get Shawn the Sheep on your DS

Aardman character gets his own game

D3Publisher has confirmed that it will release a game based on the Shaun the Sheep TV show for DS before the year's out.

The company, who previously distributed PS3/360 title Dark Sector and Puzzle Quest, will be working closely with Aardman Animation to authentically bring the personality and humour of the series to life.

In the game, the sheep have all escaped and Shaun must find them before the Farmer comes home. He will never to interact with Shirley, Timmy, Bitzer and other characters through areas like the junk pile, the sheep pool and the circus tent. Let us know if that makes any sense to you in the comments, below.

The game will feature three gameplay modes: Story, Mini-Game and Collection mode. There's no information as to the specifics of these modes, yet. Or at least, nothing we find coherent anyway.
