Silly game to show off the new features of Vim 8.2: - Popup windows with colors and mask - Text properties to highlight text - Sound


Use your favorite plugin manager.

For example, using vim-plug:

Plug 'vim/killersheep'

Or download the files using the zip archive, and unpack them in your pack directory

. Then load the pack manually with:
packadd killersheep

Or put this in your vimrc:

packadd! killersheep
