Today, award-winning international games label Team17 and developer Unicube announced that Sheltered, the post-apocalyptic survival game is releasing on mobile platforms. You’ve survived (or probably perished) on PC and console, now it’s time to face the apocalypse from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet.
Sheltered is a game that gives a whole new meaning to the term “nuclear family”. Given a head-start over the billions lost in a nuclear holocaust, you must gather as many supplies as possible en-route to the concrete underground shelter that will soon become your family home for the foreseeable future. Remember, home is where the heart is so it’s your job to turn a bare, concrete bunker into a home your neighbours will be jealous of. Or would have, if you had any left… Use resources to craft household favourites such as bucket toilets, camp beds and high-speed fibre optic internet (OK, maybe not the last one).
Combat claustrophobia, radiation and mental exhaustion as you cling desperately to life in the cramped, cold underground shelter. You’ll have to leave the scant protection the shelter offers behind as you’re forced to venture outside into the dangerous, desolate wasteland to scavenge for vital supplies which could ensure your family’s survival for just one more day. Also, pets! Choose between a dog, cat, fish, snake or horse as your loyal companion.
