Since its original debut in July 2019, the game focuses on compassion, friendship, and altruism within the game and its communities. The game has received multiple accolades including Apple’s iPhone Game of the Year, Google Play’s Best of 2020 Award, SXSW’s Mobile Game of the Year, and GDC’s Audience Award among others.

The world has expanded since release with nine adventure seasons, multiple “Days of” campaigns as well and special events to raise money for non-profit organizations.

In 2020, the game’s fanbase raised $1 million in COVID-19 relief funds for Doctors Without Borders.

This month, the studio released Season of Assembly, a new narrative arc that focuses on a lone Scout who needs to rebuild an abandoned treehouse alongside their lost kinships.
