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…

Feature: In which you are a badger

Hands On: Shelter

I am always counting my cubs. Ever since we left the sett, I have been looking behind me and counting my cubs. One, two, three, four... and a sudden panic that I have lost one, until he bounds up from whatever turnip he was investigating to join us. A sudden flash of anger happens in me. ‘You had me so worried,’ I want to say…

Give Me: Shelter Looks (Might And) Delightful

I kind of wish that all games were Shelter. Instead of starring bald space marines toting guns the size of mountain lions, they should exclusively be about mother badgers dutifully marching their squalling, squeaking babies to a new home. Not-lucrative-enough-anymore 18-34-year-old straight male demographic be damned, that's the next generation of our medium. Not convinced? Then burrow beneath the break for a video of two…

Stealth Badgers: The Full Shelter Trailer

Humans react differently to animal violence. I imagine I've seen about 200 on-screen deaths over the past few days, but at no point did I feel bad or empathise with the opposition. But every second of the Shelter's trailer, where a mother badger must protect her tiny cubs, was like a force choke right in the feels. That hurts all over, let me tell you.…

Nature’s Gonna Hate: Shelter

Sometimes, when Countryfile is on the telly and I'm lamenting the concrete meadows to which I am bound, I think of the wolves that once roamed Albion's forests and I weep. None of that's true, of course - I'm too busy watching Bogart-wrinkled noir to let Countryfile invade my screen. I do miss Wolf though. Not enough games show an interest in animal behaviour, and…

And Now Pid Has An Easy Mode

Notoriously gorgeous platformer Pid heralds from a developer called Might and Delight, and that seems about right. (Disclaimer: that rhyme was completely abysmal, and I am highly ashamed of it. Naturally, I've taken my own life in penance.) Sure, it wields a flower bouquet of colorful charm in one hand, but the other's made of pure iron and prone to crushing dreams. The gravity-warping hop-a-thon's even drawn…
