HAMBURG, Germany, August 10, 2011 - Love Shaun the Sheep's naughty antics, but reckon that if you were the farmer, you could manage to prevent some of his more mischievous mistakes? Well, with the arrival of Shaun the Sheep into Bigpoint's popular online game, Farmerama, now you can.
Shaun the Sheep and his flock including Shirley, Timmy and Timmy's Mother will arrive in the game in the middle of August 2011 and Farmerama's existing 150 million sheep are already getting excited to become part of Shaun's flock. However, Bitzer the put-upon sheepdog is definitely concerned that with such a big increase to Shaun's flock there may well be baa-mageddon!
Tobias Reisberger, Chief Games Officer, Bigpoint, says: "We know that Shaun the Sheep is one of the most popular TV shows across the world and we're delighted to welcome him into Farmerama. With over 30 million players of Farmerama across the world, this addition is Shaun to be a star."
