"For those who like to get something different out of their games, Shelter 2 offers a fresh take that successfully builds on the formula of the earlier title without tangling it up in new or difficult features." [IGN ]
Guide a powerful Lynx through vast open landscapes. Give birth to your cubs, raise and strengthen them by mastering your skills for hunting prey. Explore the wild beauty of nature and do everything possible to prepare your family for the vicious entities dwelling on the cold tundra.
Shelter 2 portraits a mother lynx and her life cycle, starting as a pregnant animal preparing her den for the coming litter, giving birth, and continuing in to a journey of parenthood where nurturing her cubs is paramount for survival.
The more you feed the stronger you and your cubs will become, and failing to find food will lead to dire consequences. To avoid starvation there are many features to master, such as different types of movements, jumps and techniques for hunting prey. Besides finding food you must make sure to have a good den, see that your cubs drink water from nearby rivers, and make sure to call them close when they wander to far away.
A vast wilderness awaits
Set out to explore several huge open territories from a safe haven - the den. A central place in the world where the lynx can always return to, either to gather strength, or to place bone trophies and other pickups such as rare plants and leafs that can be found in hidden places throughout the vast wilderness.
The world of Shelter 2 portraits natures borderless beauty, and its melancholic rawness. The music is once again created by Retro Family and the visuals have been reinvented with dense atmosphere and lighting over the patterned graphical Art-style.
Shelter 2 caught up my attention when I saw the lynx on the front of an amazing and cold landscape, for that, I bought the game and never looked back. I must say that I'm very happy with my game and the hours I spent taking screenshots of the mother lynx, the cubs and the scenery are absolutely breathtaking and amazing. This game gave me feels, a new love for lynx, thousands of screenshots of the game and a new background for my computer. Recommended.
Shelter 2 is a wonderful story about the life of the lynx and its children. The goal of the game is to survive in the forest, procuring food for yourself and for your children. For this, day after day you will have to hunt other animals such as hares, deer and others. The most notable thing is that when the mother dies, you start controlling her son. Shelter 2 can be called a survival game, but unlike other games of this type, this game has a certain plot, which is that you have to survive a whole family of lynxes. As time passes, some of the chlidren don't make it to adulthood while others grow up and begin to educate their children. All of this can be seen by the change of seasons You can also note wonderful music, with a fantastic atmosphere and unique in its own beautiful graphics.
Shelter 2 is a real touching game! and i didn't even expected to be amazed so much by this game, it's is a unique, contemplative experience. The incredible music and its particular hand-drawn style set the tone for the touching, emotional journey through the life of the lynx family. The goal and controls of the game are simple, this understated style lends itself to provide a poignant, memorable experience. If you enjoyed the original Shelter or are in the mood for a short simple game; one which tells a touching story of life in the animal kingdom through a synergy of music and art, I invite you to give Shelter 2 a try. you will be caught by it's magic and you may shed some tears as i did :)
When I started the game I though Oh no, another indie game that destroys a good idea! That didn't happen. The game has unique graphics, great gameplay and playing it on steam controller was the best idea I ever had. Noone can say that this game is bad. I just didnt understand something I had to do, but found out in a while. And how cute the game is!
you know sometimes you just don't need an epic storyline for a game, sometimes you don't want to be led through an on-rails tale of interpersonal strife and probable childhood trauma. sometimes you want something simple. something with a beautiful backdrop, moving music, and raising sweet, adorable furry babies. then comes the blob. and the wolves, and the starvation. eat your heart out, RPGs. my imagination is way more dramatic than you could ever dream of being. play Shelter 2, have an imagination and i'm sure you will fall in love with it as i did ! if you don't believe it just give it a try , you won't regret!
