Four years after Monument Valley 2 hit and , Ustwo Games has added a new chapter. The developer “The Lost Forest” as its contribution to Playing for the Planet’s Green Game Jam, which promotes tree conservation.
The chapter includes “four intimate scenes” and Ustwo hopes that by playing through them, people will be inspired to sign to show their interest in protecting forests. Play4Forests is an initiative run by the United Nations’ climate and forest partnership and the Playing for the Planet Alliance. The goal is to work with major names in gaming to highlight the “importance of conserving and restoring forests.”

“Our forests, one of our best allies in fighting the climate emergency, are facing mounting threats,” the Play4Forests website reads. “Your voice can help secure a better future for forests and humans.”
