Mary Had a Little Lamb is a macabre little MS-DOS styled retro horror game where a young woman searches for fresh meat to feed to her lamb.
In Mary Had a Little Lamb your aim is to find meat for your lamb to eat. Rather than going to a shop or searching your fridge, Mary’s preferred method of finding that meat revolves around murder and animal sacrifice. Your job is to figure out the various ways she can do this, by searching for useful items and using them in the correct places, often to delightfully horrific effect.
Taking around 15-20 minutes to play through, it’s a great little horror game with a dark sense of humor, excellent retro visuals and some brutal deaths. Despite its subject matter the game has an oddly wholesome feeling, thanks largely to the soundtrack and a strange feeling that what you’re doing is perfectly normal (when it clearly isn’t). Highly recommended.
