TerraGenesis: Space Settlers wins the Participant Choice Award in Green Game Jam 2022

The game emerged victorious from an incredibly competitive field of 42 entries!

The popular planet terraforming simulation game TerraGenesis: Space Settlers, developed by Tilting Point and downloaded over 28 million times, won the Participant Choice Award at Green Game Jam 2022, which was chosen by the participating studios, just before the release of its sequel TerraGenesis: Operation Landfall on iOS and Android on July 26, 2022.

Terragenesis from Tilting Point expanded on its already-existing tree planting feature by providing players with a permanent Tree-derboard (Leaderboard) after being chosen by the participating studios. Combining this with a short-lived event focused on repairing the globe after a climate catastrophe highlighted how harm to our planet also harms our food sources.

Green Game Jam 2022 witnessed an increase in the number of entries this year

The UN-facilitated Playing for the Planet Alliance’s third annual Green Game Jam has drawn 42 studio submissions, up from 27 in 2021 and 11 in the competition’s debut year of 2020. The Playing for the Planet Alliance’s Green Gaming Jam is a project with support from the UN Environment Programme and 42 top-tier participating game studios.

The submissions were all incredibly impressive and it was hard to choose one winner. With food being such a critical issue, we loved the creativity and innovation of Hay Day but also wanted to specially commend Rider’s Republic for their creative work on wildfires. For all submissions, we loved to see how gamification can increase awareness and change behavior.

Through the Green Game Jam 2022, game developers can provide players the tools they need to use the games they already know and love to make a difference in the world. With the intention of influencing one million players’ dietary decisions and encouraging the planting and preservation of one million trees, this year’s awards were centered on the themes of food and forests.
