April: Earth Day

April 22 is Earth Day, a global event that celebrates our planet and raises awareness about environmental issues.
This month, we challenge you to play games that feature nature and wildlife.
Some examples: Abzu, Eastshade, Firewatch, Flower, Ori games, Subnautica, Terra Nil, The Long Dark, The Witness.
Have fun!

Theme song


Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.

What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?

What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.

I don’t have any unfinished games - I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.

I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
