Experience the fears of life as a parent in this Shelter package from Might and Delight. Featuring Shelter 1 and Shelter 2, traverse vast open spaces as you inhabit the life of a mother trying to protect her younglings from the dangers of nature.
Experience the wild as a mother badger sheltering her cubs from harm. On their journey they get stalked by a bird of prey, encounter perils of the night, river rapids crossings, big forest fires and the looming threat of death by starvation.
Food is to be found, but is there enough for everyone? You will learn that the cubs need food not just to survive, but to enable them overcome the varying challenges they will face as they make their way through the world. Are you ready for a truly different adventure, something that might evoke feelings you've never felt in a game before? In the wild, all living creatures are put to the test. The question in the end is who will survive to live another day?
The game follows the life of a mother lynx, starting as a pregnant animal, giving birth and continuing in to a journey of parenthood where nurturing her cubs is paramount for survival. Shelter 2 includes more elaborate gameplay features than its predecessor, such as stamina, different types of movements, jumps and a variety of prey to kill. Besides hunting there are several maternal and hunting features, such as calling the cubs closer, smell for prey, making sure they drink water from rivers and lifting and carrying your cubs from harm’s way.
Shelter is a weird game. Essentially simple enough to handle even by a small child. On the other hand, however, there is a survival note, which makes us care for our cubs. The extent to which a player is associated with the digital life is an individual affair, but in my case, I've grown so close to them that I was constantly looking for something new to eat. Nevertheless, I do not see a reason to return to Shelter anymore. Still, it was a nice experience.
I can't say a definite 10/10 points here, because the story is just too shallow and it repeats itself just by changing the mother mammal into different ones. Although it's too predictable, the story is still TOO tear jerking. It portrays a mother trying to give her cubs a better place and life to live in while protecting them till they become adults. It's tear jerking cause the mom has to leave her little ones when they grow up and some even die. I loved this game so much, but now it's just repeating the series' plot over and over again. There are improvements and changes, but it's still the same good ol' plot. I'd have to say 8/10 on this one.
