Shelter 3 returns the player to the natural landscapes of Shelter, this time as an elephant mother in charge of her herd. In this majestic incarnation, players will experience the trials and tribulations of life on the plains, steering their herd in search of new pasture and being careful to keep calves away from tigers and crocodiles.
Shelter 3 takes herding as its spirit and heritage as its soul. Where Shelter 2 centred on a lone lynx mother and her cubs as they found and killed prey, Shelter 3 is a chance to explore a much more sociable kind of animal existence, where motherhood, social harmony and inheritance are the keys to prosperity.
Artistic Director Anders Westin explains how the team chose the world of elephants for Shelter 3: "We really wanted to explore how animals work together, in larger units than family, and how social and hierarchical their worlds can be."
Like its forebears, Shelter 3 invites you to detach yourself from human concerns and inhabit the spirit of an animal. Real-world savannas are rendered in mesmerising patterns and scored with an enchanting soundtrack by Retro Family, conjuring a magical, parallel world to lose yourself in.
In the research phase of development, Anders and the team visited Kolmarden zoo. Anders says: "We realised that in many ways, elephants are like an extension of the Shelter Community - social, peaceful, and happy in a herd."
From lynx cubs to elephant families... from the tundra to the jungle... from survival to cooperation... the next Shelter incarnation migrates to new territory, evolving into a bigger game world and an experience that you won't forget.
Shelter 3 will be released in 2020 and you can watch the trailer now... To stay notified and get a sneak peek of more artwork, visit the Steam page and wishlist.
