Developed by Creepy Jar, an independent studio made up of former Techland employees based in Warsaw, Poland, Green Hell aims to provide a punishingly realistic survival experience set within the lush if perilous surrounds of the Amazon Rainforest.
In practical terms, this means players will have to find food and water, combat infection and parasites, triage injuries, and generally learn how to cope with the environment's nightmare-inducing collection of creepy crawlies.
Green Hell is more than just a survival sim
However, alongside the standard survival elements, Green Hell rests on an undercurrent of psychological horror. “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”, reads the official blurb. While the trailer itself is similarly enigmatic - I don't know who or what that face belongs to roughly 50-seconds into the video but, given that the accompanying monologue is taken straight from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, I'm sure it'll be unsettling.
An early access period is scheduled to begin this summer on PC and, though there's not even a vague release window to set our sights on at time of writing, we understand console support will be coming at some point after the full PC release.
