ECO: build a civilization in a simulated ecosystem

A beginners-friendly server where players must collaborate to build a civilization in a world where everything they do affects the environment.


About the game

Not your usual survival game

All resources come from a simulated ecosystem, with thousands of plants and animals simulating 24/7. Work together through the player-run government and economy to build the technology to stop a meteor on a collision course with the planet, without polluting the world and killing it off in the process before that even happens.

Our Server

Full disclosure: we bumped in to this title during a Steam sale and gave it a try, only to realize that the depth and teamplay was enough to get us to stop trying and start actually playing!

Our server starts as a beginner-friendly environment with an eye toward exploring and collaborating on the game mechanics to try to avoid destruction! We'll be communicating both in-game and in our Discord server in order to coordinate roles & resources for the server for the best possible outcome.

Get started

Come meet the other players and admins in our Discord and connect to the TWL ECO server and build that balanced civilization before it's too late!

Our Admins


Having hosted countless servers and games in the past, Polykatana always carries an obsessive vision for his projects that some can only describe as "manic," "too ambitious," and "No way that's going to work. You're better off just developing a new game. Wait... stop... please don't cry." He enjoys cooking, the great outdoors, and spending time with his family.


Long time gamer and community event organizer, dox has launched several esports projects throughout his career: founding international organizations, putting up professional teams, hosting competitions and TWL admin. It takes a special kind of survival game to get him going, very excited to give ECO a shot!
