Restore nature anywhere with Terra Nil on Nintendo Switch

Terra Nil, the double Game Award-nominated ecological strategy game from Free Lives and Devolver Digital, was met with widespread critical acclaim when it launched on mobile via Netflix and PC earlier this year—and now it’s headed to Nintendo Switch!

A chill, meditative twist on the city-builder genre, Terra Nil is a game about using advanced eco-tech to transform a barren, desolate wasteland into a thriving, vibrant ecosystem. Purify soil, clean oceans, plant trees, reintroduce wildlife—then recycle everything and move on, leaving no trace you were ever there.

Tackle a variety of replayable procedurally generated biomes—including volcanic glaciers, ruined cities, and tropical islands—each with their own uniquely challenging climate, geology, flora, and fauna. Then when you’ve completed all 4 regions, challenge yourself further with unlockable alternate levels. Create rainforests, swamps, rivers, and more, and watch as the dry, cracked surface of a dead world suddenly explodes with life and color.

Terra Nil is a peaceful, beautiful, and deeply satisfying experience, and you can begin your journey of wasteland reclamation, at home or on the move, when the game sprouts on Nintendo Switch on December 18. Learn more about Terra Nil at
