New Footage Is Released, Go Find Shelter
We, myself specifically, previously covered Might and Delight's newest project Shelter. Now the developers have released some early gameplay footage. From the press release, lead level and game designer, Andreas Wangler, had this to say:
"We have been dying to show a lot more of Shelter and couldn't keep things under wraps anymore. It's still a game very much under development, but we're thrilled to finally show some gameplay footage."
Whilst Shelter is still at an early stage in its development cycle, this new footage gives us a better idea of what playing the game will be like. The video shows one of the game's core quests: the hunt for food. Andreas explains that "Food isn't everything though" and that Might and Delight "also wanted to show you some of the dangers you'll encounter where the mother must work to shelter her cubs from the perils of the wild" which the footage does; the video shows the mother badger, the player character, herding her pups from cover, avoiding threats and head butting a fox. It also showcases a variety of environments as well as the minimalist score by Retro Family and the horror of losing a badger pup to one of the forest's many predators.
Shelter is scheduled for release on Mac and PC later this year.
