Terra Nil - 50,000 Trees

Terra Nil is a super-chill little game where you have to reclaim a desolate wasteland by cleaning the soil and planting trees, then bringing back the native wildlife. While it’s pretty short, I did enjoy the fleeting time that I spent with it.

Since the game focuses on environmental issues and reforestry, the folks at developer Free Lives are encouraging the planting of trees via the Tree Nation project. This project aims to plant a trillion trees by 2050, and it got a boost from more than 50 streamers who played Terra Nil. The result is that almost 50,000 trees have been planted in the name of Terra Nil.

If you want to see the impact of this reforestry project, including details on where these trees have been planted and estimates on how much carbon this will capture, you can check out the Terra Nil Tree Warriors page on the Tree Nation website.

Free Lives is also donating 8% of its profits from Steam sales to the Endangered Wildlife Trust.

A for the game itself, it has now been played by more than 300,000 people, according to a press release that went out this morning.

The development team is planning some much-deserved rest after the game’s successful launch, but they are still listening to player feedback. After they’re break, they plan to regroup and consolidate player feedback to determine what fixes and new features would improve the game going forward.

Personally, I would like to see more content for this chill little game in the future, so I hope the plan is to support Terra Nil for a long period of time. But that’s just my personal wish; I don’t know how long Free Lives is planning on updating this.

In the meantime, to celebrate all of this, Terra Nil got a chill little accolades trailer, which you can check out below.
