What is Dark Sheep?
Dark Sheep is a block-pushing puzzle game with horror elements, and a love letter to the Commodore 64, both in visuals and audio! Plays like classic Sokoban with new twists that force you to find creative solutions!

The Lord Demands a Sacrifice.

As a new member of an unholy cult, your job is to kidnap sheep, keeping them safe until the day of the ritual comes. Trick the sheep by using the grass as a bait to lure them into cages. Plan your moves ahead. Two sheep cannot take the same path. You‘ll do things in the name of your Dark Lord, that you wouldn't do in other puzzle games.


Perform Dark Arts

They day of the ritual has come. Will you witness the Dark Lord's glorious return, or will things take an even more sinister turn? See the ritual through, and face the consequences that fall on you and your brotherhood.

  • 60 levels with increasing difficulty.
  • The soundtrack was created with genuine 1989 technology to bring that 8-bit, Commodore 64 inspired sound to life!
  • Keyboard only controls. Mouse is optional.
  • Optional CRT mode!

Re-live the glory days of Commodore 64 gaming!

Dark Lord is pleased, great job!

The MacOs version is damaged and can't be opened. Is there a way to fix this ?

I'm very sorry to hear that, I'll get on it right away! Can you please let me know what kind of error message you get?

Hello Daisy Games, it's a 'damaged and can't be opened' message. As it is... 

It's been working by installing the game through the itch app, though it still doesn't work by DL and installing the game app.

That's very strange, the file you get through direct DL and app is the same file, I don't have a separate game version for direct DL and Itch app. Thanks for letting me know and confirming using itch app solves this issue. I'll look into and see what I can do!

Try installing and launching it through the itch.io app. This fixed all "cannot open application" errors not just for this game.

It's been working ! Thank you quoquo

How about a native C64 version?

On r/c64 someone recommended me some modern tools for c64 game dev. It could be a fun side project, but don't expect it any time soon.

Programming for the C64 is hard, you are forced to use the assembly language which is very error prone
