We have also had an idea contest going the last week hosted by our delightful community moderator Bō / Toni, where everyone have had the chance to express what they like and dislike about Meadow, as well as suggesting one thing they would like to change about Meadow.
There is no guarantee that the suggestions that the winners posted will be implemented, but they are selected as winners because their answers were thought-provocing, charming, and well-written.

For a well articulated answer that analyzes and builds around the cooperative spirit of Meadow, eSKEUsme is one of the winners.

For digging into activities that can make the game interesting besides the core of collection and social interactions, FringeTech is one of the winners with their well-written post.

A poetic lynx, zirconflux
In a contest of ideas
Serves concept with a side of charm
And takes home the price that is

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.

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.
