Up until five minutes ago, I had no idea what badgers sound like. Dogs bark and cats caterwaul (appropriately), but -- according to the teaser for Might & Delight's "Shelter" -- badgers make kind of a whimpering, yelping noise.
In "Shelter," you take on the role of a mother badger forced to find a new home for her cubs. According to the Stockholm-based devs, "The harsh reality of nature plays a pivotal role in the game whilst at the same time Shelter aims to pay a homage to the great outdoors and all its imposing beauty."

The gorgeous strategy plague-based strategy game "Death Inc." gets second life after not quite meeting the goal of its recent Kickstarter campaign.

The not-really-official news that Dutch indie phenoms Vlambeer were bringing “Luftrausers,” their pixel art airplane dogfighting game, to the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Network has finally come to fruition. Over on the PlayStation Blog, Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail finally announced the game, with a gameplay trailer to match.
Ismail writes that the “Luftrausers” deal is a result of the positive experience the team had when bringing “Super Crate Box” to the PlayStation Network late last year, noting that having Devolver Digital on hand as publisher allowed them to “get right to what matters most: making a fun game about airplanes for people to enjoy on their PlayStation devices.”
Harebrained Schemes released the footage this morning to backers of the "Shadowrun Returns" Kickstarter (full disclosure: I'm a backer) from an alpha build of the RPG.
