Note: This game contains dark thoughts and references to anxiety and stress. It may or may not be suitable for bedtime reading.

Goodnight Sheep was made in 72 hours for round 40 of Ludum Dare. The theme was "The more you have, the worse it is", so we made a story-based game about how having too many thoughts can prevent you from falling asleep.
