11th December 2018 – Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent, premium video games in partnership with Unicube announced that Sheltered is releasing on Nintendo SwitchTM. Sheltered will be available digitally via the Nintendo eShop from 18th December priced at £9.99/$14.99/€14.99 with a 20% discount for the launch week. On Nintendo Switch, Sheltered includes the base game plus the Surrounded and Stasis additional content.

 

Sheltered is a post-apocalyptic disaster management game that gives a whole new meaning to the term “nuclear family”. After a global apocalypse, you take on the role of protecting four family members living in a deserted underground shelter. Their wellbeing and survival are your responsibility. One bad decision and a loved one is gone, forever.

 

 Combat claustrophobia, radiation and mental exhaustion as you cling desperately to life in the cramped, cold underground shelter. You’ll have to leave the scant protection the shelter offers behind as you’re forced to venture outside into the dangerous, desolate wasteland to scavenge for vital supplies which could ensure your family’s survival for just one more day. Also, pets! Choose between a dog, cat, fish, snake or horse as your loyal companion.
