There are a lot of games these days that take place after the apocalypse, but few are more involved than Shelter Manager, the upcoming sim from Ukraine-based Hamsters Gaming. Everything about it is customizable, down to the instigator of the apocalypse itself (pick from nukes, plague or meteor).
Thanks to one of those three, you’re now the manager of an underground bunker containing the remnants of humanity.
