Shelter 2  



Shelter 2 is a 'spiritual sequel' starring a new species


12:30 PM on 03.31.2014



I liked Shelter as an out-there concept, but as a game, it just couldn't hold my attention. Might and Delight is ditching badgers for its "spiritual sequel," which instead revolves around a lynx mother attempting to raise her family, and that's going to change gameplay.

"The badger translated into a slow and linear journey -- with the lynx however, Shelter 2 will become a much more forceful experience, where improving your techniques for hunting prey takes a much bigger role," explained CEO Anders Westin.

Players will need to leave their den to hunt prey in "huge open territories." According to Might and Delight, there's a conscious effort to base Shelter 2 on real-life lynxes. "That aspect makes Shelter 2 closer to realism, and oddly enough more gamey at the same time."

As a total sucker for games with animal protagonists, yes, I'll be keeping an eye on this.

Give me Shelter (and all its cute animals, too)

Shelter 2 is putting you higher up on its gorgeous food chain. The first game had you playing as a badger and it seems like no one wants to be a badger. So for the sequel you are a lynx, just trying to raise your family--something we can all relate to.  Oh, and it's out in February. Hooray. more

I'm happy a game like Shelter 2 can exist

Badgers were cute in Shelter, but I prefer the lynxes of Shelter 2 -- still adorable and higher up on the food chain. This is a survival game in which you begin as a pregnant lynx, a first for the medium, I'm sure. You'll ma...more
