Developer Free Lives, known for violent titles like Broforce and Gorn, has revealed its next game which is decidedly more tranquil. Published by Devolver Digital, Terra Nil is an open-ended strategy title that focuses on restoring the environment. A demo is currently available on Steam – check out the first trailer below.
With procedurally generated maps providing diversity in each playthrough, players are tasks with cleansing the soil, recycling buildings, restoring the climate and rejuvenating their surroundings. Multiple regions are available on the map with different requirements, plants and animals to keep in mind. There are also different weather patterns for each.
The hand painted environments and peaceful soundtrack definitely provide a more chilled out experience (with the developer promising that everything moves and breathes… aside from the rocks, of course). Devolver Digital hasn’t provided a release date for Terra Nil (which is listed as “TBA” on Steam) but perhaps we’ll learn more during its upcoming Devolver Direct. Stay tuned in the meantime.
