Watch: Meadow offers a joyful woodland social space

Might and Delight (them off Shelter and Shelter 2 parent-sim fame) have a small social project tied into the Shelter-verse called Meadow [official site]. I'd mostly stayed away because I didn't ever warm to the Shelter series, but I took a dip into the "forum in games clothing" and was pleasantly surprised by a lot of little joyful moments.

Unsheltered: Meadow Brings Sandbox Multiplayer Antics

Shelter and its sequel starred animal mothers on serious missions, trying to escort their children to safety through hostile lands. They're lovely-looking games but, y'know, a bit grim. Meadow [official site], the latest game from creators Might and Delight, takes those adorable animals into a safer, sillier space. It's a multiplayer sandbox where everyone just larks about. It sounds a lot like Tale of Tales's…

Shelter Creators Announce Explore ‘Em Up Meadow

Pip once speculated that Might & Delight's upcoming Meadow [official site] might be a game in which you play as a mommy meadow nurturing a litter of baby meadows, keeping in line with Shelter's tradition. While that is a game I would certainly be interested in, it seems Might & Delight has a different vision for their latest project. Unlike Shelter 1 and 2, Meadow…

Pan-Pan Looks to Be A Charming Puzzle Adventure

Pan-Pan [official site] could very well be the perfect light and breezy end to the lazy summer months--it's got a colorful open world and oodles of atmosphere, all set off with an ambient soundtrack reminiscent of something you'd hear at the planetarium. Pan-Pan is a collaboration between publisher Might and Delight and Swedish developer Spelkraft (Emil Berner to some). Might and Delight has created a…

Bushy-Tailed: Shelter Devs Tease “Meadow”

Might And Delight [official site] - the studio behind animal parenting sims Shelter and Shelter 2 have been busy teasing a thing called "Meadow". Given their email on the subject consisted solely of a Shelter-esque image and the words "Come one. Come all!" there's not much to go on but I figured enough people were fond of the series that this was newsworthy. I have…

Shelter’s Platforming Spin-off Paws Released

I enjoy cuteness tinged with tragedy, but there is a certain line past which I feel the need to be mean and cynical to balance things up a bit. I mean, if you're going to be tugging at my heart strings and squeezing my eyes for some juice, at least be decent about it. Paws [official site], a standalone spinoff from Shelter 2, came out…

Pretty Pussycat Platforming In Shelter Spin-off

The Shelter games by Might and Delight have always looked gorgeous, but the prospect of me mothering idiot babies - even baby animals - sounds more like the pitch for a dire family movie than a plan for a pleasant afternoon. But I do adore that art! So I'm certainly interested in the Shelter 2 spin-off they announced today, an "adventure platformer" named Paws [Steam…

Purretty: Shelter 2 DLC Ventures Into The Mountains

My nurturing instincts stretch only as far as buying a doughnut for Cara when I fetch my morning coffee, so Shelter 2 [official site] is perhaps not the game for me (Pip also struggled). However, Might & Delight's game about a lynx caring for her cubs is awfully pretty, and its new DLC may lure me in to gawp at rock formations and aurora borealis.…

Shelter Devs Announce “Visual Narrative” Child Of Cooper

The last lesson developers Might & Delight had to teach about babies is that they're weak and foolish so leave them to die and live your life free from fretting. Or maybe you came away from Shelter with a different message, I don't know. Maybe their next lesson is that I'm a monster. Announced today, Child of Cooper [official site] is told from the perspective…

Shelter 2 Trailer: Cute Not Red In Tooth And Claw

"Pip, I don't want to stereotype, but a trailer titled 'Cuteness in Shelter 2' seems right up your street," said Alice, stereotyping furiously. Thing is, this is a stereo-typo because I am not there for anything cute or parental. I'm interested in Shelter 2 [official site] because I want to defeat my cubs and to see how the savage indifference of nature manifests. Further reading…

An Hour With… Shelter Dev’s The Blue Flamingo

Surprise! Badger-lovers Might & Delight, they of the lovely/heartbreaking Shelter, just put out a new game. And, er, it's a shmup. But it's OK: The Blue Flamingo is a shmup with a lounge music soundtrack and hand-crafted models. 32 feet worth of handcrafted model, specifically, which was then photographed and imported into the game. Even the explosion effects come from filming fireworks. Quick impressions plus…

Shelter 2 Really Wants You To Love Your Babies

From a certain perspective, Shelter's badger kits were a resource one could strategically burn to skip a difficult situation. A small supply of hearts, continues, bullets, or smartbombs one shouldn't waste but can afford to lose a few of. I'm glad Cara is in the USA right now or she'd ruddy well throttle me, and I suspect John might call me a monster too. Those…

Badger Cull: Shelter 2 Announced

I thought Shelter was a frustrating experience about shepherding an idiot brood of badgers through bad pathfinding and poorly signposted objectives. It's wholly possible that you're a far better person than I, and you saw in it the same touching story of parenthood as Cara and John. If so, prepare to get broody: developers Might And Delight have announced Shelter 2. Even I have to…

Badger Week: Shelter Launch Trailer

While felis catus is the official spirit animal of RPS, and the endless bear its deity, there is always a soft spot* for the badger. There has been a recent groundswell (pun!) of support that can't be ignored. That's all because of Shelter, Might & Delight's mightily delightful game that somehow transposes all those icky human feelings of family and love, as well as general…
