Preserve from developer Bitmap Galaxy is a relaxing puzzle nature-building game that's going to enter Early Access on August 8th. With full Native Linux support.

Taking a rather relaxed approach to building sims with puzzle elements, Preserve certainly looks interesting. The objective is to foster and sustain a thriving and diverse biomes, where each component coexists in a symbiotic harmony. By utilizing strategic thinking and a keen eye for balance, players are granted the power to position a wide array of plants and animals, curating an environment that caters to their preferences and aspirations. Reminds me a bit of Terra Nil in a way.

  • Vertical map expansion - In Preserve, you can expand the map not only horizontally, but you also posses an ability to stack layers of nature, forming a vertical network of interconnected habitats.
  • Diverse biome habitats - From alpine forests and savannas to carribean reefs, each biome will have its own unique set of plants, animals, and environmental challenges to discover and overcome.
  • Multiple Game Modes - Besides regular harmony and puzzle game modes, creative mode lets you build the land without limitations and photo mode allows you to capture and share your creations at the end of each session.
  • Natural Wonders - Nothing can beautify your map more than natural wonders like the snowy Alps, lavender fields or redwood forests, which you can acquire thanks to a unique card upcycle system.

“We are thrilled to finally release Preserve into Early Access and let fans get their hands on all the new content we’ve been working on” said Peter Janosik, Studio Lead & Programmer at Bitmap Galaxy. “The new Marine Biome adds a whole new dimension to the game, and players will love creating ocean-dwelling habitats. We can’t wait to hear feedback from our community and we have more to reveal throughout Early Access leading up to our 1.0 launch.”
