Take part in a rescue mission and try to find Jake Higgins, the hero of the critically acclaimed survival simulator video game – Green Hell.
Jake is stranded in the Amazon forest in search of his lost wife, trying to survive in this harsh, and unwelcoming environment. You – the players – are all members of a Search & Rescue team sent with the sole task of locating and retrieving him. Each of you has a particular set of skills that will prove necessary to the whole party’s fate. Survival Expert, Medic, Guide, and the Scientist – only well-coordinated cooperation will allow you to complete the mission successfully.
Green Hell: The Board Game, created by Galaktus Games, offers players a high level of gameplay unpredictability thanks to its innovative system of ever-expanding jungle creation based on a modular, semi-random map setup. The jungle and its challenges awaiting the Rescue Party will randomly change every time you play the game with your friends, making each playthrough a unique experience.
The team behind the project has put their best efforts to translate the core mechanics from the Green Hell video game, such as backpack management, crafting, and building, to the board game format. This helps achieve a similar, complex survival experience that is instantly recognizable to all the fans of the original title.
“We, as fans, firmly believe that board game adaptations of video game franchises should not be viewed only as a “merch” to the IPs they’re based on. That’s why Green Hell: The Board Game is not retreading the footsteps of Jake but, storywise, serves as a complementary addition. B-side of sorts. It touches all the story beats from the original game but shows them from an unseen perspective.” – said Jan Wyspiański from Galaktus Games.
“Galaktus Games is a part of Galaktus PR Agency with which we’ve collaborated with for a few years. It’s a very passionate and experienced team of gamers and specialists who really helped us in creating a successful campaign for Green Hell. That’s why we were sure that Galaktus Games is the right choice for expanding our IP to the world of board games. We know that they will treat it with respect and bring a high quality gaming experience to our old and new fans.” – said Krzysztof Kwiatek, CEO of Creepy Jar.
Green Hell: The Board Game – a cooperative survival game will make its way to Kickstarter in the coming months.
