After the heads of the Free Lives studio shot at all wood with the run-and-gun vitamin Broforce, they finally seem to have found peace. While people care a little less about the fate of their hopes with each passing day, the South Africans are today lifting the veil over their new game: Terra Nil.

Behind this title hides a bit nigmatically a city planner with environmentally conscious inspiration, as the very first trailer from Devolver Digital proves. Contrary to the clichés of the genre, Terra Nil is understood as the opposite vision of urban development, because instead of plundering the limited resources of Mother Nature, the aim here is to restore the ecosystem.
Nile, Nile, Nile, rushing and stormy river
The first elements of this new title have been unveiled by the publisher, who will be delighting us with further surprises in a few days via its special press conference E3 2021:
Terra Nil offers players the opportunity to rejuvenate the plant: caring for biodiversity, managing the climate and recycling the buildings used are some of the possible steps on the way to ecological virtue. Travel through the facility to restore its different geographic regions, each with its own set of challenges but also unique flora and fauna.
Navigate procedurally generated expansive maps in lush, hand-painted environmentswhere every element – except pebbles – moves and breathes. Restore the global climate, with unique weather conditions for different regions and an engaging, atmospheric soundtrack that is thought-provoking.
If this suggestion suits you, you will know that very soon you will be able to test your talents as an offspring becausea first demo will be playable from June 16 on the occasion of the Steam Next Fest Festival.
Despite promises to see it “soon”, Terra Nil is slated for PC, but has no release date yet.
