What Is Terra Nil?

Terra Nil is a reverse city-building game all about restoring ecosystems. From the get-go, Terra Nil’s premise sounds incredibly intriguing. The Steam store is flooded with brilliant and not so brilliant city-builders. So, it will certainly be a refreshing change to get the exact opposite. Players will be tasked with restoring the ecosystem of various geographic regions through different restoration phases. Here’s just some of what you can expect in Terra Nil:

  • Restore the planet to its former self in this reverse city-building game
  • Cultivate biodiversity, regulate the climate, recycle buildings and more
  • Explore sprawling procedurally generated maps with hand-painted landscapes
  • Experience unique weather patterns in each region
  • Enjoy a melodic and chilled out soundtrack as you heal Mother Nature
