Post-Apocalyptic Survival Sheltered Is This Week's Epic Games Store Freebie

This week's Epic Games Store freebie is a post-apocalyptic survival game.

"Panting, scared, the shelter airlock smashes down behind you. You wish you did not have to go outside, but you do. It would be easier to give up. But you don’t. The hardship, the hunger, the thirst. The fear. You keep reminding yourself why you stay alive. Why you do this. Then you hear it. 'Daddy you’re back.' Your wife’s face lights up and you open a bag full of medical supplies. You need not tell her how you got them. You simply enjoy your small victory in this, the harshest of times," the game description read.

Released in 2016, Sheltered is a game where players must gather resources to keep their family alive inside their underground shelter after surviving a nuclear war. However, food and water aren't enough. Players must make sure their family is hiding in comfort to prevent problems like claustrophobia and radiation.

Players can send out their family members to the surface to gather resources or repair vehicles, which will speed up the exploration. Nevertheless, they are not the only survivors, and some survivors can be threatening. The game uses turn-based combat so players must fight with the threatening survivors or any feral beasts in order to survive.

Players can also bring a pet into their shelter too, either a dog, cat, fish, snake, or horse. Additionally, players will be able to recruit outsiders into their shelters and earn their loyalty.

Sheltered can be grabbed here.
