You need not tell her how you got them. You simply enjoy your small victory in this, the harshest of times. In the post-apocalyptic world, you must keep your family alive in your underground bunker in this deep strategy game from Unicube...
Sheltered is a post-apocalyptic disaster management game that gives a whole new meaning to the term “nuclear family”.

With all hope lost, how will you cope in this bleak new world? How you handle the many moral choices you'll encounter on a daily basis could be the difference between your family surviving or dying. Combat claustrophobia, radiation and mental exhaustion as you cling desperately to life in the cramp, cold and scary underground shelter. You’ll have to leave the scant protection the shelter offers behind as you’re forced to venture outside into the dangerous desolate wasteland to scavenge for vital supplies which could ensure your families survival for just one more day.

Sheltered is funny, basically a "legit" Fallout Shelter-like game with no pay to win options. The problem is, the game is very short and the price is way too hight for what it offers. Yes, you can try different approches to save your family, exploring all the options will take a decent amount of time, but there are no incentives to play this long enough.
This isn't a bad Fallout Shelter/Tiny death Star style game at all. In fact, it's fairly good. The actual building options are limited, but you can recruit people you meet, explore in a variety of ways, and meet many interesting enough types of characters. There's also a combat system, which is rare, but if you play the right way, you may never use it. my problem is with the price tag. The games I compared it to are free, having about the same amount of features. This however, is the same price as Shovel Knight. I don't think that's acceptable.
