Creepy Jar, based out of Warsaw, Poland, is the publisher and developer of the critically acclaimed survival game Green Hell. Established in 2016, the studio is a collection of seasoned developers and creators combining years of experience from other successful studios such as Techland and Flying Wild Hog.
With an impressive list of titles on their collective resumes (Dying Light, Shadow Warrior, The Witcher 2, Bulletstorm, and more), the Creepy Jar team is passionate about making their products the best they can be with a focus on listening to their community and giving the utmost attention to every little detail.
Operating with the belief that every player should be treated with respect, Creepy Jar endeavors to update Green Hell with compelling, free content on a regular basis alongside the implementation of near-constant enhancements and corrections.
The Warsaw studio has now released the game to consoles and has also included a Co-op game mode.
Green Hell is a sweltering struggle for survival in the Amazonian rainforest. 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.
You travel with Mia, your wife, to an island where one of the 80 Lost Tribes is settled. You wrote a book about it and now Mia wants to come into contact with the Lost Tribe.
She does this by getting initiated, rather than having a modern approach as the WHA does.
The WHA (World Health Alliance) has violated the Lost Tribes laws by doing research, which is one of the tribe’s taboos.
Their helicopter was greeted by arrows. This makes you feel like it’s not safe in the jungle, but Mia still insists that she makes contact.
Green Hell has original real like harvesting, crafting, and building mechanics. Chop trees into logs, then into sticks and planks to cut even smaller sticks from those. Build your basic survival plans like a campfire, a shack, and much more.
The game works with a notebook where you can see all of your building plans, you can easily select something out of the book to craft, or open your backpack and put the resources you have together.
Next to the building aspect, you can also craft other things like bandages, which you will need to apply via the inspect option. The inspect option shows your limbs and if there is something wrong with them (i.e. a wound on your arm, a sting in your leg, and so on).
The conversation mechanic is done via a walkie talkie, where you can pick your own dialogue and have more options to converse.
Since Mia is away and you mostly are out surviving, this is the way to conversate. However, since she is trying to get initiated by the Lost Tribe, she has gone radio silent, until one night…
I played the game on an Xbox One S and there aren’t a lot of accessibility options on there. However, the Steam version could have way more settings that can help you with accessibility.
What Green Hell does well, is that they included all difficulty modes, they added the four standard ones, easy to extreme. But next to that they also included a mode that you can customize, and a tourist mode, where you don’t have to hunt for your food. Or watch out for angry tribes.
