Fallout Shelter lets you build your own vault and act as its "overseer." Basically, you control all the people inside the vault and must keep them productive and happy.

This includes sending couples into the bedroom, which "increases happiness," Howard said. As overseer, you are also charged with naming babies in your vault that are the result of this "increased happiness."

Howard went on to explain that Fallout Shelter was inspired by games like XCOM, SimCity, and FTL.

An Android version of Fallout Shelter was not announced. We'll have more on Fallout Shelter as it becomes available.
