Sheltered post-apocalyptic disaster management update release for Linux, Mac and Windows PC


Sheltered is a #postapocalyptic disaster #management survival game for Linux, #SteamOS, Mac and Windows PC. A title that gives a whole new meaning to the term “nuclear family”. Given a head-start over the billions lost in a nuclear holocaust, you must gather as many supplies as possible en route to the concrete underground shelter that will soon become your family home for the foreseeable dreary future.
