78 games join Playing for the Planet’s Green Game Jam in its most ambitious year yet

April 23, 2024

Playing for the Planet today announces the 78 games that are set to take part in the 5th edition of the Green Game Jam (GGJ) across 15 countries.

The goal? Using video games to encourage 1 million players to take one action in real life for the environment.

The Jam is an annual movement in collaboration with Games for Good in which studios are challenged to implement green activations in their games, ranging from time-limited events and storylines to social media campaigns.

Over the past four years 120 games in total have participated in the GGJ, planting over 2.5 million trees and raising both funds and awareness with support from players all over the world. 

However, new research suggests that contrary to popular belief, raising awareness of climate change doesn’t increase the likelihood that people will take action against it - rather, empowering them to take that first step is what prompts lasting change. 

With that in mind, this year’s theme extends the Jam’s focus from awareness to action. The challenge now is to prompt player communities to take doable actions outside of the game for the environment that together add up to make a big difference.

Ravi Krishna, General Manager of Green Game Jam 2024 participant Zynga said: "The FarmVille 3 game has always been about fostering a sense of community, with our players helping each other in building their farms. The in-game and social media events that we are planning should spur our players into taking small actions, creating a ripple effect of change. We agree that gaming can be a tool to influence positive behaviour, and we are excited to lead the way through the Green Game Jam."

Jamie Wotoon, Marketing Manager at Green Game Jam 2024 participant ustwo games said: “ustwo games is proud to join the 2024 Green Game Jam, leveraging the power of gaming to drive positive environmental impact. Through our collective efforts, we aim to inspire players worldwide to become agents of change, fostering a sustainable future for generations to come.” 

Chris McGill, Co-Founder & GM of Green Game Jam 2024 participant Garden Joy said: "Care for our planet begins with education and ends in action. This is at the core of Garden Joy’s mission statement, and it fits perfectly with the incredible work Playing for the Planet is doing." 

The 78 participating games will kick off the jam online and in-person across the world tonight, with thanks to hosts and participants in the GGJ Space Ape (London), Wooga (Berlin), Ubisoft (Barcelona), Supercell (Helsinki) and Amazon Games (Irvine, CA).
