Green Hell

GREEN HELL is an Open World Survival Simulator set in the uncharted unique setting of the Amazonian rainforest. You are left alone in the jungle without any food or equipment, trying to survive and find your way out. 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? On this journey, you won’t get any help from the outside world. Equipped only with your bare hands you’ll have to learn actual survival techniques to build shelters, make tools, and craft weapons in order to hunt and defend yourself. Constantly threatened by the jungle you’ll fight with both wild animals and tropical sicknesses. Players will also have to face the traps set by your own mind and fears that crawl in the darkness of the endless jungle. STORY You are thrown deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rain forest. The green hell. Your goal is to survive in the depths of a nightmarish environment using truly intuitive means to escape. Having only a radio at your disposal you will follow the familiar voice of a loved one through this endless and inhospitable jungle, unveiling bit by bit how you got there in the first place. What you discover will be worse than what you fought so hard against to survive.

I always think reviews are pretty meaningless if you don't know what someone's into, so, firstly, I'm 40+, into survival games particularly. I like to chill and get immersed in a game's atmosphere, that's the ideal, for me. I'm playing this single player.
Five comparable titles I rate:
1) Subnautica - Like a dream.
2) Firewatch - Not exactly survival but, hey.
3) The Long Dark - Those blizzards.
4) Project Zomboid - The huge content, the constant threat.
5) Empyrion - Not quite as ground breaking but a serious contender.
I've Played the Forest, Rust , Stranded Deep, the raft... and plenty of lesser knowns and other variants on the open world survival theme but the above five... 'instant no-lifers' - I've struck DayZ from the list because Bohemia broke my heart.
I'd put this up there with the best of them. It's a very well made, well considered survival game taking a refreshing approach to many of the more common issues compromising games in this genre. I would say, if you haven't played the other 5 on that list, take a look there too.
Green Hell stands out even in that group in one respect: maintaining a persistent threat level and challenge during the 'daily grind' of feeding your character etc. This game is very well balanced and satisfying on those PVE terms, Project Zomboid and The Long Dark are the only others I know of that really succeeded there.
Firewatch I mention partly because this game has a surprisingly powerful story which does remind me of that masterwork, Green Hell engages the player with the drama through many of the same techniques Firewatch employed.
I'm 24 hours of playtime into my game and the environment remains hostile and unpredictable to me (which is unusual). Hard-to-spot poisonous spiders and scorpions are a stroke of genius as they stop you running around like an idiot and force a more realistic, cautious attention to the path you chose through the undergrowth - and exactly what you're about to stand on. The focus traversing this open world demands in that way makes exploration a deeply immersive experience which few games can match.
Like the Long Dark, this game punishes you if you overreach the limitations of your character, this forces careful planning and navigation - landmarks are rare in the dense foliage so you can easily get lost if not paying close attention to your compass bearing... you don't want to be wandering around out there at night.
There's also the threat of bumping into a tribesman or large predator - either can easily overwhelm you if you blunder into a confrontation unawares. The encounters with the NPC tribesmen are just beautiful, the confusion and mystery there, the way these ghost-like natives emerge and evaporate back into the jungle... you don't know where they are or how many there are... you don;t know where they come from or go to... but they're there and they might be all around you... and you don't belong here.
CHECK THIS - The nutrition system has four separate requirements to satisfy, so, straight off, it's more engaging than most in that regard but more interestingly... and this is the really clever bit... your health at any one time is calculated on the sum total of those four nutrition stats (more or less), so, your health level is in constant flux depending on the level of each nutritional component. Together with a fairly realistic appetite, this keeps the daily grind for consumables relevant, even when you have worked out how to maintain a stable food supply.
I also rate the creative approach these guys have taken to handling the inventory. They've kept the rucksack and the objects in it rendered in 3d as they are in the gameworld, they're dragged and dropped straight in. That's far more immersive than all that hard earned stuff becoming a 2D icon in a drop-down menu when it's picked up. ...Your collection of sticks, stones and lumps of meat maintains much more value that way.
I think it's fair to say I haven't played another survival game which maintains such a consistent pressure on the player through PVE alone - since that equation is the backbone of the survival experience, imo, this game deserves recognition for proving that prioritising survival mechanics over combat related content can make for a far more interesting and immersive experience.
...It also looks and sounds fricking gorgeous and all the rest. ...All in all, Atmospheric, immersive and challenging, even to a survival game veteran. Hats off.
