Team 17, the studio best known for its work on the legendary Worms series, has today announced a brand new title, Flockers. The game, which will be hitting Steam Early Access at some stage in Q2 of this year, is described as "Lemmings meets Worms", and shows off an abundance of the dark humour that has made the studio such a cult favourite down through the years.

In the debut trailer, cleverly titled, "Meat the Fockers" (which you can see below), gamers are given a taste of the game's aesthetic style, as well as some of the macabre laughs that can be expected when it launches.

In the game's announcement, the studio outlines the basic premise of the game as follows:

Held for years within the evil thrall of the Worms, the sheep are finally making a dash for freedom. Escaping the tyrannical Worms, the flock must dodge their way past all manner of lethal machinery and traps as they negotiate their path through the confinement of the Worms weapons factory and onwards to pastures green.
