Terra Nil Online Video Games

Terra nil is an upcoming strategy video game developed by free lives and published devolver digital for android ios, and windows. The game is currently scheduled to be released on March 28, 2023.

While the gameplay focuses on playing buildings, as is common in city building games, terra nil is the reverse focusing instead on ecosystem reconstruction. Rather than promoting the consumption of resources to expand, the game is inspired by the rewinding movement and the climate crisis and seeks to restore nature rather than exploit it.

Players are tasked with turning a barren wasteland into an ecological paradise with a variety of flora and fauna.

This is achieved by placing a number of buildings on the landscape which allow you to terraform. Wind turbines provide power but can only be placed on stone tiles. These are used to power toxin scrubbers, which prepare the soil for irrigation. Water pumps are used to refill dried river beds, while additional tools allow the player to create new rivers and new stone tiles anywhere on the map.

For each tile which is converted from wasteland into lush ecosystem, the player is rewarded with points which can be spent on further buildings and upgrades.

In the second stage of the game players can upgrade existing buildings to create biomes such as wetlands, wildflower meadows and dense forests. Restoring these biomes such as wetlands, wildflower meadows and dense forests. Restoring these biomes will cause herds of deer, flocks of birds, schools of fish and lone wandering bears to populate the map.

The unique selling point of the game comes in the third phase, where once a sufficient amount of the ecosystem and weather has been restored-the players is tasked with recycling the buildings they have placed in order to create an airship on which they will leave the map. Doing so they will leave no trace of their presence just a rewided paradise.

Terra nil was publicly announced on 7 June 2021.

The game was originally by Sam aifred , Jonathan hau –yoon and jarred lunt for lundum dare 45 in October 2019 and released on itch .io. However in October 2020, the developers formed a partnership with free lives to produce a more in depth version with more levels and upgraded.
