"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.
A lot of Shelter 2 exists outside of the player, or even the mother lynx. A lot of Shelter 2 has to do with where you are and what you need to do before even doing it. I can describe Shelter 2 as largely atmospheric. Mostly ethereal. All the time urgent as well. The interesting art and music throw you into a false sense of the familiar, but it also lets you know how far away separated you are from the game, as if saying, "You are only the player. This is MY game. MY experience." The urgency of motherhood faced with the relentlessness of outside threats keep you alert, but the game also creates pockets of peace, purposefully done so that you can breathe. Not all the time will you be running from danger. And not all danger is external. Shelter 2 is all about the experience, and I have to say, the experience is intense and incredible.
