Are you concerned about the state of our environment and want to do something to help, but you’re just too lazy? Well indie developer Strangle Loops Games (Sim Cell, Scribbly Wits) has the perfect
solution alternative for you!
Eco is a community-based voxel survival game that puts players in charge of their future. Players develop laws, government, and an economy that will aid in the success or destruction of their world.
Now before you go “Oh great, another Minecraft clone” think about this, isn’t Dave Franco just a clone James Franco? Now I don’t know which one is better, hell maybe you hate them both, but my point is why can’t we give both things a try? After all, Eco isn’t your typical voxel survival game. A lot of responsibility falls on your shoulders in Eco, where you and other players must collaborate to build a thriving civilization, using resources from an ecosystem where every action affects the land and the countless species that inhabit it. This is a game where the story is bigger than you. Like in real life, the choices you make have the power to affect those around you. Choose wisely, but don’t be indecisive as you’re on borrowed time. A natural disaster is coming and you’ll need the proper tools if you’re to have any hope of surviving it.
If you want to make it out alive you’ll need resources from the world to eat, build, discover, learn and invent. However, every resource you take affects the environment it is taken from, and without careful planning and understanding of the ecosystem, lands can become deforested and polluted, habitats destroyed, species left extinct and you could destroy the planet long before you have any hope of saving it.
Eco is an environmentally aware game in a time when we need it most. This game could act as a powerful tool to teach new generations the dangers of siphoning off the land without regard for building a cleaner more sustainable future.
Eco is a Kickstarter IP that has doubled it’s goal with donations from eager fans. The title is available now on Steam Early Access.
