In Shelter you experience the wild as a mother badger sheltering her cubs from harm. On their journey they get stalked by a bird of prey, encounter perils of the night, river rapids crossings, big forest fires and the looming threat of death by starvation.
Shelter also includes a separate mode called Nurture. It’s a tamagochi-like game that takes you back to the forest of Shelter every day and brings you even closer to your cubs.
“…Shelter reminds us just how precious life is, and how apathetic the laws of nature are to our pleas for mercy.”
– Kevin VanOrd, Gamespot
“Shelter lures you in with the bloodless story-book charm before hitting you with gut punch reminder of just how capricious nature can be…Allow Might and Delight’s fantastical art to enthrall, and let nature take its course.”
“Shelter is a really beautiful thing. It’s smart, simple, and deeply moving. No, I didn’t cry. But I did gasp, whelp, and sigh a lot, either with relief or shame…it’s unlike anything else you’ll have played, and well worth exploring.”
– John Walker, Rock Paper Shotgun
