Shelter

Digital Chumps
8 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Portraying the casual indifference from nature to it residents is a neat idea, but Shelter can't come up with enough ways to cleverly explore that relationship. The message is clear pretty early on and a change in scenery and context isn't enough to make it any more interesting.

Shelter doesn't reach the high level of profundity it aims for, but this journey through the wilds makes a few poignant points all the same.

  • Summary: A badger simulation. PC games! Shelter , in which you are tasked with raising young badger cubs in the cruel confines of nature, is out now. While clearly I can’t better Lucy’s world exclusive review from last week, I can only hope to add my own thoughts. Here’s wot I think:

  • Conclusion: I have no children of my own, in fact I’ve never even babysat a child, but after playing Shelter I have the thought in my head that parenthood is tough. The babies you watch out for are so delicate and needy that you want to, well; baby them as much as possible.

Vampire Legends: The True Story of Kisolova Review

Gamezebo
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The best games not only entertain, but teach us something. Actually, since the word “teach” conjures images of stuffy classrooms and boring lectures, perhaps it’s better to say, “the best games are the ones that pique our interest in the real world.
  • Pros: A fresh narrative based on an unfamiliar vampire legend. Really nice musical score. Interesting video interviews in the Extras section.
  • Cons: Clumsy translation. Simplistic design.

  • Excerpt: I’ve played a lot of football manager games in my life, despite the confusion of friends, I can’t help but love these simulators. The problem with reviewing management games like these (apart from the time it takes to play them and get a full understanding of them) is that each of them has something...

  • Conclusion: Sadly, most of the game revolves around you dashing from cover to cover. At times you are hiding behind rocks as you attempt to cross a rushing river. Other times you are fleeing a forest fire. It’s a shame that such a cute little game doesn’t have just a few more things going on.
