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

    crookedmind of mental health problems go through. It's not a joke, even if people have polluted the waters of what is and isn't really a condition. It needs to be taken at least as serious as diabetes. (3 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind and killed a bunch of people. If I had the money I would open my own awareness center to educate people as to how important mental health is, and what those suffering from either side of the aisle... (3 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind The problem is mental health isn't taken seriously in the country. It isn't explained properly to the general public and so they're apathetic about it, but then they wonder why someone went ape-shit.. (3 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: i've been on about 7 types of anti depressants in the last 5 years. lol. it's anecdotal, but they work. they just usually come with some shitty side effect. (15 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Now with that said.. there's no cure. Most of these disorders are poorly understood, as is brain chemistry. And people like Chris Cornell were being treated. But results vary. Better than a sugar pill (15 Hours ago)
