Indie developer Might and Delight has revealed a sequel to its well-received mother badger simulator, with Shelter 2 putting players in the paws of a mother lynx in an open world environment.
"The essence of Shelter as a concept is keeping your family alive. But we have decided to let the animal itself set the pace and character of the gameplay. The badger translated into a slow and linear journey - with the lynx however, Shelter 2 will become a much more forceful experience, where improving your techniques for hunting prey takes a much bigger role." says Anders Westin, CEO of Might and Delight.

The game follows the life cycle of a mother lynx, starting as a pregnant animal preparing her den for the coming litter, giving birth, and continuing in to a journey of parenthood where nurturing her cubs is paramount for survival. Shelter 2 includes more elaborate gameplay features than its predecessor, such as stamina, different types of movements, jumps and a variety of prey to kill. Besides hunting there are several maternal features such as calling the cubs closer, making sure they drink water from rivers and lifting and carrying your cubs from harm’s way.

"We are basing the game features on the lynx´s life and behavior. That aspect makes Shelter 2 closer to realism, and oddly enough more gamey at the same time. To simply roam the world finding prey to hunt is thrilling in itself. That´s something we wanted to bring in to Shelter before, and it’s fantastic to see it come to life now" added Anders Westin
Catch the debut trailer below. Shelter 2 is expected on Steam, GOG and "other digital platform" in 2014.
