In Assemble’s Endzone: A World Apart, players build magnificent empires from the rubble of our collapsed civilization. A world ravaged by nuclear fallout forces players to overcome the challenges of environmental change, disease, and war (and, no, weirdly enough this isn’t based on 2020).
While players are dealt a toxic deal of the future, Assemble wants their game to be merely hypothetical. This gaming company wants to give back to their player’s a real future by helping One Tree Planted reseed the forests.
On July 7th, 2020, publisher Assemble announced that their post-apocalyptic city sim has sold over 100,000 a partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit, eco-conscious organization. For every “Save the World” edition of the game, One Tree Planted plants one tree. Based on Early Access release sales and a successful wish campaign, close to 7,000 trees were planted.
“Since partnering with One Tree Planted, we haven’t looked back,” said Assemble Entertainment CEO Stefan Marcinek. “While Endzone is great fun for anyone that enjoys the city-building and management grind, it can also be considered a grim reminder of where our own environment could be headed if we don’t take action. We hope to find more ways to give back within the themes of the various games in our expanding roster.”

In a time when many companies are satisfied with giving symbolic gestures, Assemble is contributing to real change. Demonstrating how making profits can also enrich the consumers’ real life, Assemble looks forward to making games in the future by protecting it.
Not merely resting on good-will motives, Assemble creates a fan loved sim that will have you ruling a world that hopefully won’t come about. Guiltless pleasures abound while you subdue enemies, enforce your will, and reshape history knowing you helped stave off your own real-life Endzone.
