When developer Might and Delight decided it wanted to do something different coming off its successful release of the demanding platformer that is Pid, it wasn’t joking. With the gaming industry so overly saturated with shooters and retro, well, everything (including shooters), – where does an indie developer turn to offer fresh new gameplay concepts and experiences?
By thinking far outside the box, Might and Delight’s emotional new title Shelter offers gamers the chance to take on the role of a vulnerable mother badger whom is being forced out of her nest and into the wilds of nature. It’s a game that channels classic literature like Watership Down, and through it we are encouraged to think on issues such as environmentalism and sustainability. [Review Score: 4.5/5]
