Inspired by other mods such as Dear Esther, The Shelter is a short interactive fiction experience in which the story is conveyed almost entirely through original cinematic audio design and music. This is a one man project featuring professional voice acting (one of the actors has been heard in countless film trailers and commercials), and cinematic music composed by Rich Douglas and performed by the English Session Orchestra. A "planet killer" asteroid known as Eden 426 is headed your way and you're the only one in the neighborhood with a survivalist mentality who was smart enough to build a shelter in your basement to protect yourself in case of catastrophic events such as this. At least... thats how you remember it. The only information you have in the confined shelter comes in the form of a lone radio DJ commenting on what he sees and furious neighbors who will stop at nothing to gain access to your securely sealed shelter. The world ends in 15 minutes... what would you do?
