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 number of games in delightful environments, and Pan-Pan looks to be following in that tradition.

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 today, together with an “interactive book” called “The Lonesome Fog.” You will never believe how many lynx cubs die a tragic, painful death in this new story trailer!

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.

Rather than care for a wee lynx, you play as one trying to find its way home. Have a look in this trailer:

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.

Named Mountains, because it adds mountains, the DLC launched this week. It’s on Steam and GOG and whatnot for £4.

Wot I Think: Shelter 2

My family. And other animals

Shelter 2 [official site] is Might & Delight’s sequel to 2013’s badger cub parenting game, Shelter. You play a mother lynx raising a brood of four cubs to adulthood, keeping them safe and fed while roaming the wilderness in search of glowing doodads. Here’s wot I think.

Shelter 2 Trailer: Cute Not Red In Tooth And Claw

In my day snacks were seen and not heard

“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 of this news story will contain spoilers for Shelter…
