Other titles coming November 1 include Sheltered, the survival simulator that tasks you with keeping your family alive in a bunker after the apocalypse, and the side-scrolling run-and-gun shooter packed to the gills with popular video game references, Rise and Shine. On November 6, players will also be able to jump into the high-octane, action-packed indy combat racer, Grip: Combat Racing.
