Shelter 2 is a survival game, set in the tundra. It is a sequel of Shelter. Plot You play as a mother lynx. In the beginning, the lynx is pregnant, and she is preparing to den. After the birth of her kittens, she protects and feeds them. When they are strong enough to follow the lynx, they begin exploring the area and hunting. In the end, after becoming a grown-up, they leave their mother. Gameplay After the birth of your cubs, you can name each one. There is a family tree, so the player aims to keep it going. You have to protect the kittens. However, you should be prepared, that the death can chase them anytime. Sometimes the lynx has to fight enemies (wolves, eagles) and suffer from the natural disasters. As for the hunting, while progressing, the prey is becoming more prominent. In the beginning, it can be different critters, but then the mother lynx and her grown-ups kill dears. However, hunting is a bit limited in scope, because it includes only running fast and chomping. To do all these actions, you only need to beat one button. Overall, the mechanism is quite simple. The lynx can bite, roar, sniff the air, break into a sprint, but each action needs only one button to press. Moreover, you can explore the different environments of the Shelter. There is a map, where you can see the terrain as you travel.

So instead of saying something about the Game what it can do and how well it implements it, I will describe here my first Run of Shelter 2 (Who does not want to read this, since it can also contain something like Spoilers, can read on from the Conclusion). It started with the pregnant lynx mother having to flee wolves. Since this only happened in a Hose Level, thankfully it was easy. Then I followed the Stars to find a Shelter. When I reached the big Tree it really started. You can give your 4 Protégés their own Names, but I left habs as I didn't want to emotionally bind myself to them (didn't work out). In the Beginning the 4 are still so small and have to stay under Construction ie I had to go off alone and find what to eat. Luckily Bunnies were close but by my Inexperience in the Game I needed several Tries to catch one. After I managed to catch a few and feed the Little ones with it they became big enough that they could accompany me. Together we went bunny hunting, but we also found an Owl in the tree a Nest was. After a short shake, the 4 then had their Scrambled eggs. After some Time came a Shock Moment: One of the little Raconers collapsed and has been moaning. The bunny Hunt to reignie him was exhausting, because I still wasn't that good at it and I didn't want to leave the little one alone for so long. When this was fortunately done and the little one survived, he was even bigger than his Siblings, but the Whole thing was more stressful than I liked. After a short Period of time, the 4 were larger and could hunt for themselves. When we were at the River, on the one hand, they could tip Frogs and sip Eggs, but also disappear into Rocks ... So restart the Game Stand. Since there were enough Rabbits there and my Babies were no longer that went quite well, especially as I got better myself. Then it became Autumn and there came what had to come. The Furios Four has to go its own Way. At first I was shocked because the 4 suddenly stopped even though I went on. When I was far enough everyone was doing their own Thing, but I couldn't let them go and had to turn back. Since I did not find them again I returned to the Tree where the 4 were born and then I was alone there. Another Installment followed the Stars. When I found another Lynx at the other End, the Game was over and there came the End Credits. Conclusion: I certainly neither saw everything nor experienced everything you can experience in Shelter 2, but the first thing I was about playing through was just about getting the 4 Through and I managed to do this, despite the Heartbreak at The End ... * schnief * and No I didn't cry. Despite the vlt just 1 1/2 h Of play, the €14.99h is justified, because Gameplay, Emotionality, Atmosphere and re-playing with one of its 4 former Protégés make the Game worthy of its Prize. The Graphics are so intentional But don't seem to everyone, but I still give the Game a 9.5/10 because I haven't been so emotionally gripped since my Favorite Game, Ŵkami.
