'Green Hell' Animal Husbandry Update Adds Breeding Capability And More

by Rainier on Aug. 1, 2022 @ 2:02 p.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?

Hot on the heels of revealing 3.5 million copies sold, Creepy Jar is thrilled to announce the release of the much-anticipated Animal Husbandry update for Green Hell on PC. Available now as a free update, players can look forward to many new features such as the ability to tame and breed a number of the game’s creatures including Creepy Jar’s personal favorite, the capybara! Celebrating this momentous occasion, the team at Creepy Jar are equally thrilled to announce they’ve adopted Tenebris, the lone capybara at the Orientarium inside of Poland’s Łódź Zoo.

Announced as part of Green Hell’s 2022 roadmap, the Animal Husbandry update includes several new features that go far beyond the ability to simply breed animals. Staying true to the foundations of Green Hell, it’s not as easy as you might think!

Utilizing the all-new blowpipe weapon, players can hunt capybara, peccary, and tapir safely putting them to sleep in order to tame them within pens able to be built at their bases. Care for them, earn their trust, feed them, clean their living quarters, and maybe—if you have both a male and female in captivity—you’ll be able to breed them, as well. And of course, you can pet your newfound friends! Further to that, you can also use the blowpipe as a defense against other animal and human enemies either immobilizing the threat immediately or over time based on your target’s size.

In addition to the three creatures already listed, let it be known that the Animal Husbandry update also introduces the ability to capture and breed bees keeping them in beehives where players can then harvest valuable honey. It is not advisable to pet the bees.

Perhaps the most exciting part of today’s announcement, Creepy Jar could not be more proud to introduce players and fans to Tenebris! Residing inside the Orientarium at the world-famous Łódź Zoo in Poland, she’s a happy capybara who enjoys eating her greens and playing alongside her tapir friends Oliwia, Grażyna, and Kia. Taking her name from the Latin word meaning ‘darkness’, Tenebris is a ray of sunshine for visitors to the zoo but her namesake is something the developers of Green Hell certainly can identify with!
