“Rarely has a game articulated loss in such clear and urgent terms”
8/10 – Eurogamer

7/10 – Gamespot

Om detta spel

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?

Retro Family have once again composed a beautiful soundtrack to an original and graphically innovative setting in a world of nature where shelter is your only hope and survival your only goal.

Firstly, Shelter is a short game. Steam says I finished it in 1.1 hours, but I went to the bathroom and forgot to pause it, so probably an hour. I picked the game up on sale on the Humble Store, so I certainly don't feel hard done by. The story is rather moving, and I was sad to lose all but two of my cubs through the game. There is definitely replay value, as I want to finish with all cubs alive! Here are my thoughts:

PROS:

- Excellent pathfinding, except in the last level where my two remaining cubs focused on a tree on two occasions. Using sprint/sneak overrides this and makes them follow, so no biggie.
- I love the art style, barring a single point in 'cons'.
- The game is very simple, yet really got my heart pumping in certain sections, especially in the penultimate level.
- The water foaming worked very well in my opinion and looked great.

CONS:

- The water/waterfall texture is a single rolling texture, which I do not like.
- The colours are a bit too desaturated at all times for my liking. This is personal preference I admit, but others may be put off by this.
- No controller support. It's an easy workaround with JoyToKey, but still it shouldn't need to be done. Basic controller support is very common in indie games so I've come to expect it. In any case, Might and Delight (the developers, in case you don't know) also developed Pid, an indie game with full controller support. I sincerely hope that full controller support is included in Shelter 2.
- When keys are re-bound in-game, the prompts early on do not change to reflect this. Very minor, but worth noting.
- This is probably my own lack of skill, but I couldn't catch a single fox. I caught a rat by accident, but never a fox as they were too fast for me to catch up on them by sneaking.

Overall, I very much recommend this game, though perhaps not for €10 unless you see at least 4 playthroughs being likely. I very much enjoyed this game and look forward to Shelter 2!

Rating: 8/10. The story and atmosphere compensate well for its shortcomings.

This could have been an emotional game. Unfortunately a game-breaking glitch happened for me mid-game, that rendered the feeding button useless, completely breaking suspension of belief. I didn't continue after two cub died not because of my negligence but the glitch.

Really simple gameplay, really simple story but despite all this simplicity and apart from some quirkyness, quite the lovely experience.

It's not a horror game, but this game scared me more than any horror game or movie every has or will. I experienced a moment that made me quit after staring at the screen for 10 minutes and I've never had the courage to boot it up again, despite leaving it installed on my computer for nearly a year.

I named one of my baby badgers simba. Eventually he was the only one left. I lifted him to crown him king of the land for all the other animals to see. Then he was taken away by a bird. Mufasa shall remain king after all.

Very fun game, although it only has a few hours of gameplay, it was very intense and action packed. Feeding and keeping your badger cubs safe is hard work, but it was worth it. The end of the game was very surprising, but I'll let you find out what happens yourself.
I recommend this game to anyone, adults and kids a like.

10/10! Shelter is a truly wonderful game! It's a pretty easy-going, yet heart-warming tale of a mother badger and her cubs. As you journey through the beautiful forest landscape, you get an idea of what real badger mothers must go through. I seriously cannot wait for Shelter 2 to come out, but I assure you, this game is totally worth it!!!

What started as something I thought of as a relaxing, light-hearted adventure ended up becoming a very emotionally engaging assault on the senses. Every new level/setting I entered I would think to myself, "there's no way they can top this", but lo and behold, I was even more impressed with each new area I entered. The music is incredibly well done and obviously hand crafted personally with much thought put into it, as every piece fits it's respective area very, very well.

As fine as I think the game is in it's current state, I don't think anyone would deny that more areas would be a very welcome addition. The game is quite short but doesn't overstay it's welcome, in my opinion it's just right for the concept and the message it's trying to convey.
This is a game you'll want to show your friends and family.

If you want to be a badger but you can't afford the surgery, Shelter is a decent substitute.
