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

“...Shelter reminds us just how precious life is, and how apathetic the laws of nature are to our pleas for mercy”

About the Game

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.

I got really drunk and played this game... ended up naming my precious badger babies. When I lost turtle I was screaming at the river. Then when I was done I wanted to punch a bird. Buy this game.

The emotions of keeping my faimly alive through the elments of danger is only explinable by the fact that I was drunk while playing this game. As I finshed the game I only had 1 of my 5 badgers left now I know how hard it is to be monnmy a badger! Now I have fulfiled one of my lifetime goals in life.

This game is amazing. Yes, it's short. Yes, it's basic. Yes, it's far from being graphically groundbreaking. But guess what? it works!... It speaks to your guts without a single word. It's an experience with a lot of soul. No HUD needed, no briefing nor story. In the wild life, it's the instinct that tells you what to do. Although the game being very short, it's a little piece of art that you should play to the end the best way you can. It's self-rewarding.

Nature, and by extension life, is harsh. Very harsh. This is what this game is about. The controls are simple and the world is quite small and linear. You're a mother badger who has to look after her cubs. The mechanics are built around that, so if you really try to keep them all alive and well fed the game can be very tense and dramatic. It's short, but I think it accoplishes what it is set out to do quite well; it explores an idea through envoirmental storytelling and solid, coherent mechanics. If you know what you're getting into you won't be dissappointed.

Designed as an experiment to see how far you can ramp up the gamma in the Unity engine, the scientifically accurate Badger Simulator 2015 primarily serves to teach kids that badger cubs are omnivores that eat a grown cat's RDA every hour. In an epic play full of deep & morally relevant messages about adolescence, parenthood and the circle of life (sans Elton John), you are assigned the part of Badger Mommy, genetically engineered not to need any food whatsoever herself, and you bid your time (your hour, to be precise) babysitting your most adorable [citation needed] kids along a reasonably linear path of invisible boundaries, not passing go or collecting $200 until the game eventually runs out of scripted encounters. In the meantime, this corridor shooter without any shooting will hurl tons (I measured!) of emotionally charged music out of your speakers. Functionally it's a bit like a third person Lemmings game with the Lemmings following you 95% of the time, furthermore devoid of the various joyful abilities proper Lemmings have. Worth the purchase (or the effort of playing) only for the peculiarly jolly Predator-esque airborne takedowns Badger Mommy can perform on the various hostile mobs inhabiting Gammaland.

Length: 1 hour
Evils: Unity; scripted as much as any CoD campaign; omniscient bird AI; bugs
Replayability: You can hypothetically strive for a perfect playthrough. Depends on how often you'd like to endure "dat gamma".
