Rip it up and start again in Terra Nil
Eco-warriors Free Lives (Broforce) and recycled publisher Devolver Digital have announced Terra Nil, a reverse city builder about ecosystem restoration, coming to PC on a distant, as-yet unspecified date in the post-apocalyptic future. Eager ecologists can begin restoring the planet to its natural glory in an all-new Terra Nil demo, available from June 16th as part of Steam Next Fest.
Terra Nil presents players with a task of global environmental rejuvenation. The open-ended strategy progresses through multiple stages of restoration, including cultivating biodiversity, fixing the climate and even recycling the buildings players used to get there. Traverse the planet, restoring different geographical regions, each with their own unique challenges, flora, and fauna.
Navigate sprawling, procedurally generated maps with lush hand painted environments where everything but the rocks move and breathe. Restore the world’s climate, with unique weather patterns for different regions and a beautiful and meditative reactive soundtrack and audio palette.
