Our videos of Shelter

Our videos of Shelter

Since its sequel has just been announced, it got us curious and we decided to purchase the first Shelter on Steam as it was proposed at a very cheap price. With such an original concept as experiencing the life of a mother badger taking care of her cubs, Might and Delight's title will clearly not be everyone's "cub" of tea. The goal is to make sure your baby badgers survive the journey by feeding them as much as possible and keeping them out of harm's way (whether it be wild animals, fire or a dangerous river). The game is short, less than 90 minutes, but however linear it is, the very fact that you can lose your cubs makes it interesting. We just hope the sequel will offer with more variety in terms of situations or gameplay mechanics. As it is, this first attempt is worth a try at this price, provided you see something that might interest you in our videos. The visuals are evidently the game's strongest suit, although we think it lacks contrast and gives the impression there is a constant white veil covering the screen.

The lack of contrast bothered me as well when playing it. Kind of a shame

    GriftGFX And you need the script extender for stuff like SkyUI. (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX script extender functionality (at least temporarily) (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Even games with robust toolkits are often enhanced by third party tools. Skyrim is a good example. There's still a lot of folks playing the original version on the PC because the re-release broke (48 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Ironically the last thing I had to hack to get to run correctly was a Microsoft Game Studios title. That bodes well for the future :P (50 minutes ago)

    Melmoth i have run some injectors/hacks on a few games to fix certain limitations of resolution or such, but not since Dark Souls 1. (55 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i rarely use mods. last time was xcom2, and that supports mods out of the box. I'm not that into replacing models in WWE, GTAV or SFV. But ofc, for people who live for that stuff it's not a good thing (56 minutes ago)
