Become the crazy nastyass badger in Shelter

Pid was one of the most charming games I played in 2012, so it's no surprise that developer Might and Delight's next project, Shelter, focuses on the most mighty and delightful creature in the animal kingdom: the crazy nastyass badger. This peculiar third-person adventure is planned for late summer release on PC and Mac.

Shelter follows a mother badger who is forced out of her shelter and must protect her litter of cubs from the harsh reality of nature. "Shelter aims to pay a homage to the great outdoors and all its imposing beauty," the developer wrote on its YouTube description.

I'm not sure what to make of this one. Pid was a clever, self-aware game, but the tone of Shelter's trailer and synopsis seems unaware that badgers are silly as hell -- I'm pretty sure they place right above sloth and platypus. The game claims to be an "emotional journey" but the emotion I have when I think about badgers is laughter.

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back

I really enjoyed watching Clementine's tale unfold over the course of The Walking Dead Season 2. It managed to establish a different tone than the first season, which makes them rather hard to compare bit by bit. But in terms...more
