Green Hell is a new survival game by Creepy Jar, a new Polish studio made up of ex-Techland devs. These are some of the people who worked on Dying Light and Dead Island.
For their first game, Creepy Jar is going for a realistic “psychological survival simulator” set deep within the uncharted depths of the sweltering Amazon rainforest.
In Green Hell, you wake up in the middle of the jungle, with no recollection of how you got there. Now, all you need to do is survive. Easier said than done, right?
To survive, you’ll have to collect food and water, craft items, and fend off all the terrible things that live in the Amazon rainforest. The dev team has consulted with survival expert to make sure that everything you craft is absolutely necessary for your survival.
You’ll need everything you can get your hands on because the rainforest is filled to the brim with dangers. Poisonous plants, deadly predators, infections and merciless parasites are just some of the things you’ll encounter is this exotic death trap.
To help you keep track of all the nasty wounds and diseases you will undoubtedly suffer, Green Hell implements a Body Inspection system. You can look at different parts of your of your body, like arms and legs, to check for cuts, holes and mysterious rashes. It’s also how you apply various remedies to cures to your infected parts.
But physical dangers aren’t the only threat. You also need to battle crippling loneliness and creeping insanity. Being all alone in the middle of a jungle takes a toll on one’s mental health.
But are you sure you’re alone?
One of the first things you find in a working radio, and it soon starts broadcasting messages in a familiar voice. Bit by bit, you will unveil why and how you came to be in this hostile place. What you discover might be worse than what you need to do to survive.
Creepy Jar has released a 20 minutes video of unedited gameplay. It mostly focuses on day-to-day survival, but if you make it to the end, you’ll get a glimpse of some story elements.
Green Hell will enter Early Access on PC later this summer, but will eventually reach PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
