'Green Hell' (ALL) Plant Cultivation Update Scheduled For Next Week

by Rainier on Nov. 1, 2019 @ 11:45 a.m. PDT

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 is growing yet again with its previously announced Plant Cultivation Update.

Available on Monday, Nov. 4th, it will soon be time for players to tap into their inner farmer and add a little green thumbs action to their survival repertoire. From planting plots to harvesting, the Plant Cultivation Update will allow players to grow their own plants and reap the rewards. 

The Plant Cultivation Update adds a number of new gameplay mechanics to the already deep experience of Green Hell:

  • Farming Mechanic - 15 plants available to be cultivated! Whether it’s seeds harvested from fruit or shoots of bamboo replanted in your garden space, players will have new ways to keep themselves nourished and supplied in the harsh depths of the Amazon.
  • New Constructions - Build the new planting box and small planting box for all your camp farming needs.
  • Fertilizer - Some items are able to be used as fertilizer for a happier, healthier garden. Sure, plants can grow without it, but they’ll grow much better with a little fertilizer assistance.
  • Seeds - Harvest seeds from the fruit you find in the wild to cultivate back at camp. Once planted (and given all that plant love), plants will respawn fruit.
  • Green Thumbs Only - Plants don’t just survive. They need a little bit of care and attention! Proper hydration and fertilizer are imperative to happy, healthy gardens!

Key Features

  • Realistic Survival Simulator - Green Hell puts 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.
  • Psychological Thriller - Waking up in the middle of the Amazon with no recollection of how you got there or how you’ll get out, the hardest battle you’ll face is the fight against yourself and your weaknesses and fears.
  • Fully Alive Amazon Rainforest - Every effort has gone into recreating the lush world of the Amazon in painstaking detail. An exotic and dangerous place, this jungle is filled with many hazards beyond predators including toxic plants, illnesses and infections, all waiting to bring the player to their demise.
  • Body Inspection - Dangers lurk around every bend but they also live under your very skin. Paramount to your survival is checking your body for parasites, infections, and wounds. Take care or suffer the consequences.

Green Hell is currently available for PC (Steam) for $24.99, with console versions planned for 2020.
