Hamsters Gaming has an unusual surprise for colony sim and management game fans -- the Shelter Manager release date has been moved up to an earlier date in October 2021 on PC.
We first covered Shelter Manager early last month. As the name implies, it's a game that's all about managing an underground shelter similar to Fallout Shelter (which you can now play on your Tesla, of all things) or Mr. Prepper, a similar game that debuted its creative mode earlier this year.
Shelter Manager steps things up a notch by allowing you to choose your apocalyptic disaster; a nuclear war, a global pandemic, and a meteorite strike are three such examples of events that can drive humanity underground. From there, you can enjoy the game's campaign mode and learn to live underground, but it won't be easy -- you'll have to manage your civilians, create production lines, research technology, and establish a military to protect yourself from rival shelters.
Hamsters Gaming's newest release was originally planned to launch in Steam Early Access this Saturday. However, the game's developers have made a somewhat surprising announcement: it's moving up the Shelter Manager release date to tomorrow.
When is the Shelter Manager Release Date?
The Shelter Manager release date is now October 8, 2021. That's one day earlier than its previously announced launch date of October 9.
It's nice to see a game arriving a little earlier in a world where games have been getting delayed left and right (albeit for good reasons). You'll be able to buy Shelter Manager for PC via Steam with a 10% launch week discount on its price of $14.99 or your regional equivalent.
