Games Like Sheltered

Games Like Sheltered are a precious find. A story about the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, the game, developed by Unicube, follows a family that by taking refuge in an underground shelter, managed to survive. Now, inside the shelter, they find themselves low on food, water and basic items.

Their only chance of survival is to go outside and search for the supplies they need in order to survive. But the outside is different from before. A lot of dangers lurk in the crumbled streets, such as other humans and surviving beasts. And a constant danger for all of those that venture outside is the radiation, a threat that forever lingers.

In this survival simulation game, some of the main objectives are: keeping your family safe from the dangers of the new world; improving and securing your shelter, making it more habitable; recruiting outside members and integrating them; and training and arming your family.

What truly makes this game different from other nuclear apocalypse games is the family. They are the core of the game and the most important goal is to keep them alive, even if morally dubious decisions have to be taken. You can initially choose your family members’ names, gender and looks. A family pet is also allowed and you can choose between a dog, cat, fish, snake or horse.

As the game progresses, the choices you make in order to guarantee the family’s safety begin to take a toll on them, changing their personalities in accordance with the decisions made.

If survival simulation games are something you like, this game, with its mix of moral conflicts and an apocalyptical world, is one you don’t want to miss.
