Shelter is the new game from Indie developer studio Might and Delight, who brought you Pid in 2012.

As the mother of a litter of cubs you are forced out from familiar and safe surroundings to find new shelter in a beautiful, but dangerous world. The harsh reality of nature plays a pivotal role whilst at the same time the game aims to pay homage to the great outdoors and all its imposing beauty.

Gameplay Overview

Shelter is a third-person, single-player adventure game for PC and Mac and that is developed in Unity. It tells the story of a badger family facing the dangers of the wild, while the cubs are too young to survive without their mother. The games narrative is linear and guides the player through the badger families’ life, and different scenarios that nature brings: Deep forests, vast fields, dark nights, heavy rain, hungry predators and even raging wildfires.

From an animal perspective

A philosophy we are striving to achieve is to create a really strong immersion to the animal kingdom. That's why there's not a single trace of humanity in the actual game. We want the humanity aspect to come in from the players who are playing the game, with emotions we humans feel. If we succeed with that we have reached our goal.

Care for the cubs

As most of a parental animals life, especially badgers, revolves around their cubs, we wanted to create a game where most, if not all of the gameplay aspects revolves around them as well. Whether it be finding, collecting, hunting, gathering and distributing food, or protecting, hiding and sheltering them from harm. We want it to be your job as the mama badger to make them strong, so they can survive and eventually one day take care of themselves.

The Art of Shelter

The look of Shelter is inspired by the graphical hard cut look of Japanese art and symbolism. Every surface in Shelter is covered by a hand painted pattern that takes the idea even further. The art of Shelter have never strived to surpass nature in its excellence, but instead offer an intriguing and beautiful abstraction.

Might and Delight

Might and Delight is a small to mid-size development studio located in Stockholm, Sweden.
We believe that one of our greatest strengths are that each of us come from different fields of the entertainment industry, such as traditional AAA-game development, indie games, teaching game theory and the movie industry. The variation and clash of all these experiences able us to see game development in a different light. Our ambition from the start has always been to create games that we believe stretches the boundaries of the video game culture, and to bring you something hardly ever seen before.

Below is a summary of where our team members have previously worked:

Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Just Cause 2)
DICE (Mirrors Edge, Battlefield 4)
Lionhead Studios (Fable III)
Massive Entertainment (Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Far Cry 3)
