Sheltered is one for people that enjoy a tough survival game, and micro management too. You need to be vigilant with resources and keep an eye on the inhabitants too. The game becomes one of trust issues too as you’re never sure which outsiders who seek shelter are good, and which are bad. Sheltered is a well crafted game that is quite tough at first to make progress in, but once you’re used to its systems there can be a rewarding experience. Just be prepared to lose people along the way.
Sheltered is a complex strategy and resource management game which gets a lot of things right. Its presentation creates a palpable atmosphere, while its many relatively simple systems interlock in ways that are both thematically appropriate and mechanically interesting. Unfortunately, those same clever systems sometimes rely too heavily on luck, which – when combined with the title's abysmal controls – often make the entire experience more frustrating than its worth.
