Shelter Review | Gather Your Party

Shelter tells the story of a family of badgers living a popup book. With only a brief tutorial and almost no text or dialog whatsoever, the game manages to communicate its premise rather clearly: keep your pups alive. Through clear illustrations the various challenges of sneaking, securing food, and traversing rivers rather effectively. Each pup has distinctive markings and will slowly turn from brown to grey as they grow hungrier. The game actually doesn’t allow you to leave the starting area until you nurse one of them back to health. The pups are somewhere between acting as extra lives (though the game does not end if all of them are lost) and achievements. While you can complete the game as a strong independent badger-momma, there’s a degree of challenge to keeping the pups alive. Also they’re pretty cute. (PC, Shelter) -
