Counting Sheep was a Flash screamer animation made by "Dragon" Nelson, originally hosted on dragonsplace.co.uk in 2004. This is the first screamer that disguises as an innocent game (even there are gruesome images that will abruptly appear at the end).
The game invites the player to count animated cartoon sheep that are jumping over a fence, letting them know they'll be asked how many sheep there were by the time it ends. As the game progresses, the Desert Palace Zone music from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 plays in the background (only used to make the game more innocent.), After counting 5 sheep, a flurry of pictures of injured sheep and sheep carcasses accompanied by an extremely loud scream. The game then cuts abruptly again, this time to a credits frame which cuts to words displayed in order "LOSER.", "omg you suck", and a "Play again" button.
The site of this game does not exist anymore but can still be found in the archives of web.archive.org.
NOTE: The following game contains extremely graphic content!
