Anniversary content update 2017-10-25

We're happy to release this autumn-themed celebration to Meadows' first birthday! (Technically it's tomorrow, October 26th, but we're doing a little head start since it's a wednesday today.)
Whether you were in the beta group, or just picked this up, we hope you'll enjoy the update. See you all in the Meadow!

Content additions

  • New animal: Hedgehog
    The first animal who never have appeared in another Shelter game, the Hedgehog have now waddled into the Meadow!

  • New collectable category: Mushrooms
    24 types of mushrooms are now available to find in the Meadow. Divided up in common, rare, and fabled, these fungal treats should light up quite a few strolls in the woods and caves. A task for Doctor Malcom, or will someone else step up?

  • New pheasant skin
    A new skin based on the winning entry from the pheasant skin art contest, by SeleneTheWerewolf!

  • New toy: Leaf piles
    Jump around and rejoice in these poofy piles for some autumn feeling.

  • 9 new achievements
    Related to the Hedgehog, the mushrooms, and the leaf piles.

  • New language: Ukranian is now available thanks to Mykhailo Radzievskyi!

Other changes
  • Camera zoom in/out is now available to keybind in the controls menu.

  • The catnip mode getting stuck when sensing again when the effect is going out should be solved.
  • Invisible buttons in the den reacting (made the mouse over sound) solved.
  • Many level bugs (weird spawning places, flying grass, etc.) have been solved.

  • Hedgehogs no longer get a lighter colour when getting muddy.
  • The sound when the hedgehog lands from a greater height should now be audible.
  • The puzzle view not showing the hedgehog image when it's fully unlocked solved.

About This Game

Heaven is a place called Meadow! Vast, teeming with life and now a unique social experience. Might and Delight invites you to frolic freely in the lush fields of Meadow - a unique multiplayer sandbox.

Unlike traditional titles from the Shelter franchise, in Meadow the more time spent embracing the gameplay features in the world, the more you receive. Owning any previous Shelter related title(s) or products will also unlock in-game content. The open landscape also provides ample room for exploration with new patches and additions promised.

Band together with other animals, form uneasy allies or choose to explore alone. Whatever you decide, the open park life is one you will want to immerse yourself in.

Main features:
  • Play as any combination of animals on land, water or air in the largest expanse of land ever created for a Shelter game.
  • Communicate with other animals via specially created emotes, symbols and sounds.
  • Use senses to discover and track other players in world.
  • Visit the den to choose from up to 9 different animals, over 60 skins and over 90 expressions and symbols to unlock.
  • The more Shelter titles and products you own, the more bonuses you unlock.
  • New original music from Retro Family.

Shelter products in Meadow
  • Owning any Shelter game will unlock the ability to play as that animal in Meadow (e.g. owning Shelter 2 unlocks the lynx etc.)
  • Owning all games (no soundtracks or books included) will give you the possibility to play as the adorable bear cub from Paws.
  • Gain unique sound abilities if you own any combination of soundtracks.
  • Owning our interactive books will unlock unique 3-dimensional emotes.
  • For the collector and owner of the entire Shelter catalogue, you unlock the ability to play as a bird.
