Green Hell is an intentionally hard open-world survival game. You are abandoned in the Amazonian rain forest with no equipment or food, just your wits. In order to survive, you must utilise real-world survival technics to build your shelter; start fires, set traps; gather food; find clean water; make tools; and craft weapons. In the jungle, you are under constant threat from wild animals and diseases. However, the dangers do not stop within the jungle, the most dangerous enemy in survival is your mind.

The jungle environment dynamically changes and will respond to changes you make to the ecosystems. Unlike other traditional survival games, you must use body inspection mode in combination with foraging for medical supplies to ensure cuts do not become infected or parasites do not start living in your body. Green Hell requires you to manage both physical and psychological strength to find your way out alive.

Green Hell is on PC and Nintendo Switch but is planned for Xbox and Playstation consoles.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Rated PEGI 18 for drugs and strong language. We asked the VSC Rating board why the PEGI rating didn't include a Violence descriptor. They said: "The descriptors shown alongside the PEGI rating highlight the reasons for the specific PEGI rating awarded, rather than all issues that might be present in a game. So, the fact there isn’t a violence descriptor next to the PEGI rating doesn’t mean there isn’t violence, just that this wasn’t the deciding factor."

ESRB MATURE 17+ for Intense Violence, Blood and Gore and Partial Nudity. Blood, Crude Humor, Use of Drugs, Violence, Strong Language.

Th developer describes the game as an extreme psychological survival game. “The player faces a ruthless situation, isolated, and fighting to survive another day. The players battle will not only be against the environment but also fight to keep their sanity. Will you succeed or fall into the depths of your mind? To unveil the truth the player will have to fight the hardest battle they will ever fight - the fight against themselves, their weaknesses and fears.”

Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
