Play OverviewPlay Overview

Garbage Country is a meditative traversal game where you drive a car around a polluted world. There are no enemies to fight or challenges to overcome, so you can focus on exploring the world and interpreting the stories of ruined buildings and newly budding forests you encounter. It stands out for this unique approach to storytelling where you're left alone to interpret the world for yourself.

You traverse the vast open world in your vehicle, driving across hills and through valleys polluted with plastics and other rubbish. You occasionally encounter the remnants of our world, like half-buried roads, derelict petrol stations, and signs for long-gone attractions and roadside stops. Punctuating the desolation are small signs of a more vibrant future to come, such as small patches of green grass and forests slowly reclaiming their ancient land. Through it all, you're left to think about the meaning of it all.

The result is a game where the focus is on the world and the way you perceive it as you drive, with no specific goal in mind other than taking in what's around you. While it can be hard to see such desolation, the small fragments of nature offer a hopeful vision of the future to consider as you drive.
