Green Hell Is The Jungle With No Fun And Games

Made up of ex-Techland developers, the creators of Dying Light and Dead Island comes a brand new studio with a horrifically intense game. Independent studio Creepy Jar based in Warsaw, Poland has announced a first-person,  psychological survival simulator set in the uncharted depths of the sweltering Amazon rainforest. The game aptly named Green Hell sets the player on a journey of durability as the effects of solitude wears heavy not only on the body but also the mind. Check out the trailer it’s pretty intense.

Waking up in the Amazon rainforest you have no memory of how you get there but you do know that you have to survive. It looks like a bad day hiking in Southeast Asia but probably more intense. With only a radio at your disposal, the player will follow a familiar voice through a seemingly endless and ruthlessly inhospitable jungle. Bit by bit, you will unveil more of the mystery of how you came to be in this hostile situation, and what you discover just might be worse than what you fought so hard against to survive. Check out some of the gameplay below.

Creepy Jar is putting great focus on realism in both its world building and gameplay. Everything that is crafted or built is necessary for survival and was consulted on with experts. The Amazon is not a typical forest; threats are literally crawling under your skin you’ll need to regularly check your body “for parasites, infections, and wounds” while trying to escape.

It’s a decent enough premise, and if the survival bits are well-executed, this could be memorable. Green Hell is planned for Early Access this summer, with console support coming after the PC version.
