'Green Hell' (ALL) Early Access Update Adds New Animals, Area, Fishing, And More - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2018 @ 5:03 p.m. PST

Green Hell is a first-person, psychological survival simulator set in the uncharted depths of the sweltering Amazon rainforest.

In Green Hell the player is dropped into the impenetrable, emerald depths of the Amazon rain forest; the Green Hell. Having no memory of how you got there, your goal is simple: survive. Stuck in a beautifully nightmarish environment, it will take fortitude of mind and the most primitive of means to escape.

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.

Clinging to life, the player is set on a journey of durability as the effects of solitude wear heavy not only on the body but also the mind. How long can you survive against the dangers of the unknown?

Green Hell now sees the release of its second massive update as detailed in the Green Hell Roadmap.

The Water Update brings with it new animals, an entirely new area on the map, fishing, and even new difficulty modes! If you've wanted to simply focus on building your camp and enjoying your stay in the jungle, now you can! Continuing to improve upon the game while keeping a keen eye on the requests of their community, Creepy Jar now moves onto developing the third update of the Roadmap, the Combat Update. Keep an eye out for that in the new year!

Dive into the Green Hell Water Update and experience more of the Amazon rain forest than ever. Explore the expanded map, but keep a wary eye out for the Black Caiman whose jaws can rip you in two before you can blink! Learn how to craft fishing rods and catch fish for food, or even take a dip into their waters and swim with them. These features, and many more make the Water Update Green Hell's biggest update yet.
