First footage from Shelter 2 Including More Game Details

Today, small indie studio Might and Delight presents the first in-game material from their upcoming title. Shelter 2 – a survival game starring a lynx –  will be arriving on steam, good old games and other digital platforms early in 2015.

The gameplay video shows what Shelter 2 is all about; vast open landscapes, graphical storytelling, hunting and gathering, and most importantly – making sure that your children are kept safe..

“We have continued to work on Shelter 2, and are pleased to show of the first in-game footage. We have polished the visuals and the gameplay in search of an identity that continues were Shelter 1 left off – but still manages to stand on its own.” /Team Might and Delight

Hunting! The lynx can sense the smell of prey from a distance. A useful feat to find targets in the dense woodlands.

The map is a visualization of what the Lynx remembers, it will give players subtle hints about the surroundings. Secret spots and locations will also show up there once discovered.

Water will freeze during winter, which allows players to cross rivers to reach new areas. But it also means fewer places to drink from, making surviving more difficult. 

The Lynx can use its smell to remember where different areas are located. A symbol will appear in the sky which players can use together with the memory map to build an understanding of the world.

In Shelter 2, you start off as a pregnant Lynx, and have to prepare a den in order to give birth to a strong litter of cubs.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
