Seek Shelter in the Summer

Shelter is a game about that most overlooked of game creatures, the humble badger:

In Shelter the player takes on the role of a badger mother who needs to protect her cubs from the dangers that exist in nature. The game takes the player on an emotional journey, and focuses heavily on creating attachment between the player and the badger family.

It’s billed as a third-person, single player adventure. “There are no boss fights in this game. No good or evil elements. It´s simply about survival and protecting your offspring” says lead designer Andreas Wrangler, which is a refreshing change, quite frankly.

It will come to Macs in the Summer, from Might and Delight, who last produced platformer Pid. There’s a Steam Greenlight page up, and a trailer below.
