Today’s deal is the Sheltered!
BLAST FROM THE PAST
Today’s game is called Sheltered, and it’s all about a family living together in a fallout shelter after the apocalypse. It’s got a cool pixel art graphic style, it’s turn-based, and there’s exploring and crafting, which are all things you statistically probably enjoy, but if you’re not in for a trip, you’d better just buy the game and check out now, because the rest of this post is going to be about 1999 romantic comedy film Blast from the Past starring Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone.
Basically, Christopher Walken (!!!) and Sissy Spacek (!!!) are some overly paranoid Americans in the 1960s who end up hiding in a fallout shelter for 35 years after a runaway fighter jet accidentally crashes into their house and they assume the worse. They have their kid in there, they watch The Honeymooners and listen to Perry Como for much longer than we did out here, and their son grows into an extremely sheltered middle-aged man.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. Isn’t that just basically the setup of a Fallout game? Well, yes, it is, except when this dude, played by our man Brendan, steps out of the shelter it’s just the normal weird-ass 90’s outside. Talk about fish out of water, right? But if you’re thinking that’s way too much setup for what’s basically just a “coming back to your hometown” romcom…it is! The game Sheltered that we are selling is much better than this kind of boring weird movie! (Did you know that part of the movie is that a cult starts based around Brendan emerging from the shelter in an abandoned pub? Did you know that he also punches out Nathan Fillion because he dad taught him how to old-timey box? All of this is real.)
So please, gamers, buy Sheltered from us today, have a good ass time surviving a REAL nuclear apocalypse, and never ever watch this weird old movie. I’m only thirty-one and it made me feel old as hell.
