LongLeaf Valley announces successful planting of 1 million trees through players’ action

The studio demonstrates how gaming can be a force for good with tangible impact on the environment

TreesPlease Games, a studio established in 2019 to create impactful games beneficial for the environment, is currently marking a significant milestone. In their inaugural title, Longleaf Valley, players have collectively planted over 1 million trees through their actions. This accomplishment not only signifies the offsetting of carbon emissions equivalent to over 5,600 cars but also positions Longleaf Valley as the first mobile puzzle game to achieve such a feat.

Longleaf Valley launches environmental mission

In 2023, Longleaf Valley debuts with a Play It, Plant It concept. The gaming experience calls upon participants to rejuvenate a once-thriving National Park ravaged by environmental calamities and climate shifts. By engaging in merge-style gameplay, players address the park’s deterioration by combining various elements: seeds into seedlings, seedlings into saplings, and saplings into trees, among others.

Through tree planting, players not only restore the virtual park’s vitality but also contribute to real-life tree-planting endeavors, facilitated by the Eden Reforestation Project. Trees are strategically planted across African, Asian, and Latin American regions, fostering employment opportunities for local communities and safeguarding numerous wildlife species. These outcomes underscore the transformative potential of gaming: minimal player input yields substantial environmental benefits.
