'Shelter Manager' Comes to Steam Early Access Tomorrow

Shelter Manager is a post-apocalyptic city management sim where you recruit survivors, upgrade your bunker and protect humanity's remnants through three deadly apocalypses.

It’s the end of the world as we know it!

In Shelter Manager players step into the stockpiled shoes of a bunker administrator, tasked with leading your people through an earth-shattering cataclysm and preparing them to reclaim the surface. That is, if they can survive the long, hard years living underground.

In Shelter Manager, players can customize the existential threats they’re facing, with multiple scenarios available. Nuclear war, deadly plague or a planet-pulverizing meteor impact each provide different challenges to face in the dark days ahead. After choosing their starting location and initial resources, players have to decide what kind of civilization they want to lead out of the apocalypse.

Without a well-managed bunker, the destruction of everything you’re protecting seems inevitable. Players are tasked with managing the well-being of their bunker and the civilians inhabiting them. Deal with food rationing, electricity usage, and even everyone’s sleeping habits in order to maintain order. The bunker itself needs to be expanded and reinforced as well, as the stability of the structure will deteriorate over time. Nobody said the apocalypse would be easy.

Shelter Manager also asks what kind of leader you are. Will you assemble a utopian enclave of scientists, researching new technologies to confront the threats ahead? Will you lead a hard-working town of laborers, mining and expanding for resources to trade with other bunkers? Or will you carve out a new future through force of arms, raising a powerful army to raid for resources.

Shelter Manager will be coming to Steam Early Access om October 8, 2021, and remain so for about 6 months.

In Early Access you will be able to play sandbox on a large US map with 24 bunkers. You can go through the campaign (at the moment there are 6 missions in it). The basic version of the game is fully functional.

"In the full version, we will collect all our accumulated experience from the early access and make adjustments to the gameplay! It is also planned to add at least 6 missions in campaign, 2 more main maps (Asia, Europe Union), drone functionality, marauder functionality, expedition functionality."

Key Features:

  • Choose from three locations (USA, Europe, and Asia) and one global catastrophe to live through (Nuclear war, global pandemic, or meteorite strike)
  • Manage the bunker’s food, electricity, and sleep habits of civilians
  • Expand the bunker by recruiting more civilians
  • 10 special rooms to unlock and expand the bunker
  • Produce weapons and war with other bunkers for supplies
  • 6 different types of weapons and soldiers to choose from

Shelter Manager will be coming to PC (Steam) in 2022.
