Homebrew sheep-herding game hits DS


If Bomberman knocked up Harvest Moon and had babies, the illegitimate Dreamcast homebrew game Cool Herders would probably be the result. If you loved it on the DC, then you'll be glad to know that a polished portable version is on the way to the Nintendo DS. Here's the meat of the awful press release:
Cool Herders For The Nintendo DS

With bright colourful characters, and good game play, lead your flock of sheep to safety, protect them from dangers, and don’t just follow the herd! Four player Wi-fi action will feature in this great game, which is based on its creators original Dreamcast version but with all new features for the DS. It is a perfect first market entry for Alten8 as a publisher, to launch itself into the console market. Full details will be released over the coming weeks of both this, and the other future console titles from Alten8.

Doesn't it fill your otherwise cynical heart that some guy's late night indie game finally got published after all these years? I love hearing stories like this. Check out the official site for more details. Want it now? The Goat is selling the DC game for 20 beans. B-a-a-a-a-hhhh!
