The developer of Pid announces Shelter, in which you play the mother of a litter of cubs

"We are not saying nature is cruel..."


The developer of retro platformer Pid has announced its new game.

Shelter, from Stockholm-based Might and Delight, is a third-person adventure game described as an "original emotional experience", and is due out on PC and Mac at some point in 2013. There's a Steam Greenlight page, too.

The teaser trailer, below, doesn't give much away. You play the mother of a litter of cubs forced out from the safety of their home to find new shelter in a "beautiful but dangerous world". Apparently the harsh reality of nature plays a pivotal role in the game.

"It's our ambition to create an experience of immersion by making you feel exposed and vulnerable in the sometimes unforgiving hands of the wild," said lead level and game designer Andreas Wangler.

"We are not saying nature is cruel, however what the mother and her cubs will experience is simply a fact of life. There are no boss fights in this game. No good or evil elements. It's simply about survival and protecting your offspring."

Might and Delight formed in early 2010 from the ashes of Bionic Commando: Rearmed developer Grin.
