Anniversary Content Update 2018-10-24

Hello all!

It's been two years since we released Meadow (actually in 2 days, but we're cheating on that). It's been an interesting project to work with, and we've appreciated all your input and enthusiasm along the way. Todays update is a mix of a lot of ideas and input, shaped through an M&D lens.
Regardless if you're an old or new player, we hope that you'll enjoy our second anniversary update.

But without further ado, here is what's new for today:

Content additions
  • A new animal: Wolf (Unlocked by owning the Symbols comic)
  • A new piece of land is now added to the world (next to the winter biome)
  • A new music piece (tied to the new piece of land)
  • A new toy: Snow piles
  • One new skin for the Hedgehog (from the Hedgehog skin art contest)
  • 6 new achievements

Other changes
  • There is now a way to change the resolution in the Connect screen (if it's far too small or large on your screen). Hold Left Shift and browse through the resolutions with UpArrow/DownArrow.
  • The Eagle can now have the Home action.
  • The sound effect when other players pick up items is now a limited effect in the audio menu.

  • You can now hold Left Control when scrolling to zoom the camera to change the vertical offset of the camera.

  • Muted and blocked animals are now saved between sessions.

  • Performance drops in certain areas that were new to the update should now be fixed.
  • Certain translations are now updated.
  • The Hide-button in the UI should now work again.
  • The wolf emotes should now be as high-res as all other emotes.
  • Snow piles should now be easier to see.
  • The first wolf voice should now be louder.
  • Change Camera Height is now key bindable.
  • The new north arrow on the map is now togglable in the Gameplay settings.
  • The Wolfs walking speed is slightly adjusted to fit the animation.
  • The Wolfs collision is now adjusted (should solve issues like difficulties to jump on steep walls etc.)
  • The Bear cub now have footprints and footstep sounds again.
  • The Wolf should now not make idle head movements while drinking.
  • The new areas music should now not be able to be interrupted in the middle.
  • The randomization of the new areas music should now be more even.
  • The water should now be affected by fog again.
  • The correct hedgehog skin should now be displayed in the Puzzle screen.
  • The idle head movements should not not trigger together with the play action.
  • The auto-find of resolution when one first starts the game should now be better.
  • Several issues with particle changes should now be solved (particles should no longer linger, there should now not be autumn leaves in the autumn cave after you respawn there, etc.)

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.
