The post-apocalyptic city builder Endzone - A World Apart is all about the aftermath of a terrible global catastrophe. Now, the developers are trying to stop the real-world apocalypse by fighting climate change — and you can help!
If you're unfamiliar with Endzone, you can get a pretty good idea of what it's all about by checking out its newly-released Feature Trailer which rather appropriately shows off droughts and sandstorms.
As you can see from this new trailer, two new features are explained. The humidity will range from arid to extremely humid. High heat can lead to plants dying and soil turning into something that isn't the best for growing crops. Players will have to use an Irrigation Plant to farm in drier regions.
Droughts, too, will be a danger in Endzone. Wells can provide a steady supply of water during these rough times, but it won't help you hold back the inevitable sandstorms that will come as a result. These sandstorms will slow down your villagers and damage your buildings.
It all sounds pretty rough, and sandstorms & droughts are among the problems that the real world will face if climate change is combated by people who give a damn. That's why Assemble Entertainment is stepping up to do a little something about that!
How to Help Endzone - A World Apart Fight Climate Change
According to a press release from the publisher, Assemble Entertainment has partnered with One Tree Planted for a campaign to get some trees in the ground and start sucking some of that CO2 out of the air.
How does it work? Simple! For every milestone reached on the game's Steam wishlist count, a certain number of trees will be planted. Here are the milestones and the total number of trees that will be planted as a result
- 70,000 Wishlists - 500 trees
- 80,000 Wishlists - 1,000 trees
- 90,000 Wishlists - 1,500 trees
- 100,000 Wishlists - 2,000 trees
- 110,000 Wishlists - 2,500 trees
- 120,000 Wishlists - 3,000 trees
