Steam’s Earth Appreciation Festival Now Live

From now through April 24, Steam’s Earth Appreciation Festival sale is now live.

Put on by the developers of Timberborn, The Wandering Village, and Empires of the Undergrowth, this dual-themed sale features nearly 150 post-apocalyptic and nature games. Highlights include Dying Light 2, Far Cry: New Dawn, Farming Simulator 22, Eco, and Dorfromantik.

Note that the sale will appear on Steam’s front page to celebrate World Earth Day (April 22), and will share titles that emphasize our relationship with our environment – and the consequences should we end up doing wrong by it.

According to Michal Amielanczyk, Communications Manager for Timberborn:

“Everybody loves a good post-apocalyptic setting, but games like this carry a serious warning. Other developers choose to showcase the Earth’s beauty and emphasize its preservation. The games featured in this year’s Earth Appreciation Festival serve both purposes, and we’re delighted to see that the lineup has grown with many prominent and promising titles to check out! We hope the tradition continues.”Michal Amielanczyk
