...I don’t want to overhype [sheep here] but please play this game. I think I’ve discovered I really love what I think of as “parser poetry”, small parser games with a limited verb set...

A tiny parser game about a happy happy sheep, April 20, 2016
Well, I don't know if the sheep is happy, but I was. In the tradition of Lost Pig and baby tree (2 very different games), we have sheep here, a terse, uncapitalized game consisting of brief sentences.

The aesthetic works for the game. A large chunk of the game consists of randomized text, with many clever results.

The game accounts for many, but not all, standard responses. A couple of these responses made me laugh out loud.

The subtitle about non-procedurally generated grass probably refers to a discussion in intfiction and euphoria chat about how randomness is not the same as procedural generation.

This game was entered in the Tiny Utopia jam, providing a fascinating concept of "utopia".

There were a few issues (like the moon being listed after it left), and even more commands could have been implemented. But these are minor quibbles.

If you enjoyed sheep here...
