Sheltered Update V1.5.1 - Bug Fixes

Hey Survivors,

We're dropping by with a hotfix to avoid some pesky bugs. Thank you all for your patience whilst we addressed this.

Bug Fixes

  • Achievements should now be functioning as normal. Progress toward achievements shouldn't be lost.
  • Fix for characters in Linux version appearing pink.
  • Vsyncing improvements - certain GPUs should no longer run hot.
  • Input fix: controller hot-swapping has been replaced with a switch in the options menu. Users experiencing issues with peripherals should be able to use keyboard and mouse without issues now.

Good luck out there!

Hey Community,

Firstly, a big shout out and thank you to everyone who took part in our recent patch beta and provided feedback. Thanks to your efforts not only have we made a few tweaks but we’ve also been able to take the build out of Beta and release it into the main game for everyone to enjoy.

Full patch notes are below:

  • 3 brand new difficulty settings: Easy, Hard and Hardcore.
  • Customisable difficulty options.
  • Updated the menu system to incorporate difficulty settings.
  • Fixed bug where the dog (and party) may not return from expeditions (this may not fix pre-existing issues in old saves)
  • Fixed bed covers layering issue
  • Fixed an issue where objects could be crafted on top of one another, or in places they should not be allowed (by the front doors)
  • Stopped paint eroding on walls
  • Removed some rogue pixels from a shelter door sprite
  • Updated breach tutorial popup text
  • Fixed bookshelf bug where it wouldn’t decrease the amount of books when deconstructed
  • Updated Horse Stable sprite
  • Stopped the family stating “the pet is hungry” hints when they are away from the shelter (Dog/Horse)
  • Stopped automated characters from repeatedly trying to use a bed which is at 0% integrity
  • Stopped pets getting stuck in partially constructed rooms
  • Fixed a bug where two deconstruction panels opening at the same time would cause the game to pause until ESC/B is pressed
  • Fixed bug where breachers would not enter if there was a dead body blocking the door
  • Updated encounter summary “victory” panel artwork
  • Unity updated to fix input issues
  • Fix for pink characters appearing in the OSX version.

We look forward to hearing what you think of the new additions to the game over on the forum page. Oh and good luck with Hardcore mode, you’ll need it…

About This Game

Panting, scared, the shelter airlock smashes down behind you. You wish you did not have to go outside, but you do. It would be easier to give up. But you don’t. The hardship, the hunger, the thirst. The fear. You keep reminding yourself why you stay alive. Why you do this. Then you hear it. “Daddy you’re back.” You wife’s face lights up and you open a bag full of medical supplies. 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”. Given a head-start over the billions lost in a nuclear holocaust, you must gather as many supplies as possible en route to the concrete underground shelter that will soon become your family home for the foreseeable dreary future.

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.

Feature List

  • Family comes first: Keep your family alive and protect them from the ravages of the harsh post-apocalyptic world.
  • Make the shelter a home: Maintain your shelter - keep it secure, habitable and make sure that the family have enough resources to survive. Protect your shelter from hazards and infiltration!
  • Customisation: Your family is unique to you; you decide their gender, names and their appearance.
  • RPG mechanics: As your family develop, their stats will adapt with an evolving experience and trauma system. Attributes, strengths and weaknesses will dynamically change based on your choices.
  • Crafting system: Create comforts for your family’s shelter and weapons for combat.
  • Exploration: Send out your family to explore and gather resources for everyday living and crafting.
  • Recruitment system: Recruit outsiders with different personalities, integrate them into your shelter life and earn their loyalty.
  • Dynamic encounter system: Your family will encounter various threats including roaming factions and feral beasts.
  • Turn-based combat: For those that cannot be reasoned with, violence can be used as a last resort. Your family may depend on it.
  • Pets: Your pet is family too. Choose between the dog, cat, fish, snake or horse.
  • Vehicles: Make exploration quicker and safer.
