Team17 to publish post-apocalyptic strategy-sim Sheltered


10:45 AM on 06.30.2014



In years past, Team17 has mostly been known as the studio behind Worms, but lately the studio has been expanding that image by publishing other UK-based, independently-developed games. Last month we saw the publisher pick up Self Made Miracle's Penarium, and today it announced Sheltered, a strategy-simulator that takes place in an underground bomb shelter.

Players will manage a nuclear family of four, having to deal with basic problems like fighting off starvation and dehydration, as well as more specifically post-apocalyptic issues like radiation poisoning and marauding survivors on the surface. Sheltered is currently in its last few days on Kickstarter, but it has already reached its modest goal of £15,000 and is working on stretch goals to release on additional platforms.

Sheltered is expected to release in May 2015 on PC, Mac, and Linux, with an Ouya release some time afterward. Stretch goals that have not yet been reached include iOS and Android tablets, PS4, and possibly Xbox One.

Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both. more

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
