|  Shear Factor is a puzzle, "Herd ‘em up," single player game with platform   |
|  style gameplay. You take on the role of Farmer Joe within unique, vividly   |
|  textured New Zealand environments with cel shaded characters. The           |
|  objective of the game is for Farmer Joe to guide his sheep to the goal      |
|  while protecting them from possible danger.                                 |
|                                                                              |

|  Farmer Joe, a typical New Zealand farmer, is on a mission to rescue his     |
|  sheep dog Shep from a gang of rebels called The Wooly Farmers. The Wooly    |
|  Farmers have abducted poor Shep and are demanding tons of wool as ransom.   |
|  With Joe and Shep being as close as close can be, Joe does not think twice  |
|  about giving in to the rebels’ rash demands. The only problem is that Joe   |
|  doesn’t have enough wool. He decides to round up as many sheep as           |
|  possible, and shear enough wool to get back his beloved Shep! But where is  |
|  he going to find the sheep? With the clock ticking, Joe hastily heads off   |
|  on his mission around the country, to shear all the sheep he can find.      |
|                                                                              |
