Anyone that has played even the slightest amount of Green Hell will know the demand for clean water. With disparate “thirsty”s uttered out from a dry mouth on the regular, you’ll need to have a consistent stream of quality H20, if you want to last past even your first day.

Yet like most games of its ilk, Green Hell keeps its watery options hidden. As much as it will be tempting to take a sip from a dirty river, it really isn’t worth the hassle it will cause. Instead, here is a guide on where to find water and how to craft a water collector, so you’ll have a constant collection of water to quench that unconquerable thirst.

Where to Find Clean, Fresh Water in Green Hell

Clean, freshwater is essential to survival, and before you get to any crafting, you will need to find some fast. As a Green Hell newbie, you will want to be on the lookout for coconuts. Before harvesting, coconuts are green and can be found at the foot of the large curved trees – some can even be seen at the top of the trees as well.

Once you find a coconut, strike it with any weapon you have collected, it will break down. You can now drink the clean water inside the coconut; you can even eat the flesh on the inside.

However, now that you have drunk the contents of the coconut, it is still useful. Eating the flesh will leave you with two coconut shells, which can be used to collect rainwater.

Simply pull a shell out from your backpack, and drop it on the ground. When it begins to rain, the shell will fill up and provide 10 hydration points.

However, if you aren’t keen on waiting for the rain to fall, this is where a water collector comes in handy.

How to Craft a Water Collector

Before you get started collecting materials for your water collector, you will need to find its blueprint. Heading to 51W 26S on the map will take you to the drug trafficking camp, where the blueprint can be found.

Now that you have the blueprint to craft a water collector, you will need the following crafting materials:

  • 4x Long Sticks
  • 4x Sticks
  • 4x Rope
  • 11x Banana Leaf

Much like our guides on how to start a fire, you can find long sticks and sticks by striking down a tree with a knife. Rope can be found on the side of trees; it's called Liana. Banana Leaf can be found all over the map and will split when you strike the plant.

With the materials in place, you can select the water symbol on the right of your notebook, find the water collector, and begin to place the needed materials.

With the water collector crafted, it will begin to siphon water through the shoot of banana leaves. Take your coconut shell from earlier and place it under the water collector. It will then be near-instantly filled.

A tortoise shell can also be used in place of a coconut shell. While this method offers no more hydration than simply placing the shell on the ground, it will fill the shell far quicker, allowing you to get the most of the rainy spell. A tortoise shell can also collect clean, freshwater, albeit slowly, when it isn’t actually raining.

How to Craft a Water Filter 

If however, you want a more direct source of water, look no further than the water filter. This life-saver can be found at the fishing docks (51W 19S). The water filter will allow you to convert dirty river water to safe drinking water

To craft the water filter you will need: 

  • 2x Long Stick
  • 1x Bamboo Log 
  • 2x Rope
  • 3x Charcoal 
  • 2x Small Stone

If you do find the water filter at the docks, the nearby island will be filled with plenty of bamboo to collect. Charcoal can be found in burned-out fires, and small stones can be harvested from large stones, which are found randomly around the map. 

The water filter will also be found in the water section of your notebook. Once crafted, putting a coconut shell full of dirty river water into the water filter will start the cleansing process. However, much like the water collector, be sure to place another coconut shell under the filter. 

With a mixture of coconut shells, the water collector, and water filter, you will hopefully keep that hydration meter nice and full during your time in Green Hell. For more, consider checking out our other Green Hell guides!

How to Start a Fire in Green Hell https://www.gameskinny.com/hdv7h/how-to-start-a-fire-in-green-hell https://www.gameskinny.com/hdv7h/how-to-start-a-fire-in-green-hell Fri, 11 Jun 2021 13:57:56 -0400 Aaron Bayne

Man’s greatest friend in Green Hell is fire. You’ll need it to cook food, stay warm, stay sane, and maybe even just attain a nice ambience for your camp. However, as you’ll be seeing red with disastrously low carb, protein, fats, and hydration meters, figuring out how to get yourself some cozy flames going can be a bit much.

This guide will ease the pressure by showing you how to set up a basic Green Hell fire. It will also tell you how to craft the hand drill, as well as find two important types of tinder to get your fire going. 

How to Build a Fire Base in Green Hell

Building a Green Hell fire in is incredibly easy and requires the following ingredients:

  • 6x Small Sticks
  • 8x Sticks
  • 1x Hand Drill
  • 1x Dry Leaves

Sticks are the easiest items to come across, with plenty of harvestable trees in the jungle. You’ll need a basic bone knife to hack away at the trees, which can be found in the first abandoned village you’ll come across; it's there beside the hammock in the back of the small village.

Breaking down a tree will usually provide all kinds of sticks: large sticks, sticks, small sticks, and planks, all of random number. Large sticks can be chopped into sticks, and sticks can be chopped into small sticks, usually resulting in two of the item.

Once you have all of your wood collected, you’ll want to open up your notebook, navigate toward the fire symbol tab on the right side (third tab down from the top). Hover over the small fire drawing on the left page of the notebook, and select the small fire.

This will allow you to select where you want to place your fire on the ground. Once positioned, you can deposit all of your sticks and small sticks to actually build the fire. 

How to Craft a Hand Drill in Green Hell

Now that your fire base is built, you’ll need a hand drill and some dry leaves or a bird's nest to ignite it. Luckily, crafting a hand drill requires the same materials needed for the fire base, which makes it easily accessible if you neither have one or your previous one has worn out.

To craft a hand drill, you’ll need:

  • 1x Stick or Plank
  • 1x Small Stick

Once you have the materials, open the crafting menu and combine the crafting ingredients. 

To use your hand drill, simply open your backpack, however the cursor over the hand drill, and select the dropdown option. Select use. If you have tinder (dry leaves or a bird's nest) in your inventory, this will start a small animation, where the hand drill is placed in front of you.

How to Get Dry Leaves

You’ll come across dry leaves naturally. If you are short, you can typically find them on either the tree that provides bananas or the tree that drops nuts. Dry leaves are noticeable by their brown appearance

You can also make dry leaves if you have a bamboo dryer. Luckily, there is a bamboo dryer in the first village. Gather small leaf piles by chopping down bushes, then hang them on the bamboo drier. 

How to Get Bird's Nest

Bird's nests can be found on the ground and in trees. In the tutorial, you'll find a bird's nest on a log. Out in the real game, finding bird's nests can be difficult, and they're much more random it seems than dry leaves. Look high and low to find nests, but don't make them your main source of tinder early on.  

How to Start a Fire

Once you have placed the dry leaves or bird's nest into the hand drill, an animation will play, and you'll begin to spark up a small flame. Ensure that you have plenty of stamina when you begin this because if you run out mid animation, you will both deplete the durability of your hand drill and use up your tinder.

Once you have the ember ready to go, approach the planted fire base, and you will be prompted to “ignite." Choose that option, and you have fire!

Like anything else in Green Hell, fires also have durations and durability, and they will only last so long. A fire’s duration can be determined by the circled icon. You can extend a fire’s duration by inserting leaves, feathers, and various other items into the flames.

How to Craft the Green Hell Fishing Rod https://www.gameskinny.com/32wdt/how-to-craft-the-green-hell-fishing-rod https://www.gameskinny.com/32wdt/how-to-craft-the-green-hell-fishing-rod Wed, 09 Jun 2021 13:37:41 -0400 Aaron Bayne

Crafting is the name of the game in Green Hell. As you make your way through the Amazon, you'll build traps, shelter, fires, beds, weapons, and tools, all of which are essential to surviving in this perilous jungle. However, while so many elements you come across are integral in multiple crafting recipes, the Green Hell Brazil Nut is needed for a singular but essential tool: the Fishing Rod.

This guide will tell you how to build the Green Hell fishing rod, as well as how to find the sometimes elusive Brazil Nut. 

How to Craft the Green Hell Fishing Rod

While you'll hunt and kill other animals with rocks, bows, bone knives, and spears, sometimes catching your prey requires a little more elegance. For example, in most river areas, especially in those just below waterfalls, fish are easy to come by, and with a simple weak spear, you can catch most fish with ease.

However, if you are looking for something a little more tranquil, a fishing rod is the next best thing. Crafting a fishing rod is a relatively simple task, and you will need the following crafting materials:

  • 1x Long Stick or Long Bamboo Stick
  • 1x Rope
  • 2x Bird Feathers
  • 1x Brazil Nut Bowl

Finding most of the ingredients is easy. Long Sticks can be found by chopping down trees. Rope can be found hanging from the side of thicker trees (called Liana). Feathers can be found either in bird's nests or by harvesting the bodies of dead parrots, which are often scattered around the map.

How to Find Green Hell Brazil Nuts

Most importantly, though, you'll need Brazil Nuts. Green Hell Brazil nuts are found at the base of the large trees, and harvesting them will supply you with the bowl.

How to Craft a Hook for the Fishing Rod

Once you have collected your materials and assembled your fishing rod, you will need a hook. These are incredibly easy to assemble and require either a bone needle or fishbone.

Harvesting a fish will supply you with a fishbone, and harvesting a bone will provide you with a bone needle. A bone is easily found on the carcasses of dead animals. Placing either in the crafting menu will prompt you to craft a hook.

Once you have your hook, equip it to the fishing rod. Next, open your backpack and drag the hook across to the rod to combine the two.

How to Get Bait for the Fishing Rod

Now that you have your fully assembled fishing rod, the last component needed is bait. Small insects and mushrooms can be used as bait. However, if you found a bone in an animal carcass, it will also have maggots that will work just as well.

Like how you combined the rod and hook, open your backpack/inventory, and drag your bait across onto the fishing rod.

And that's that on how to craft the Green Hell fishing rod. Now that you know how to get all of the crafting materials, including the Brazil Nut, you'll be able to relax by the water and let time fade away. If you'd like to catch fish while multitasking, consider building a fish trap. We have a guide on that, too

Green Hell Review: A Thinking Man's Survival Sim https://www.gameskinny.com/jub4t/green-hell-review-a-thinking-mans-survival-sim https://www.gameskinny.com/jub4t/green-hell-review-a-thinking-mans-survival-sim Thu, 10 Jun 2021 14:24:45 -0400 Aaron Bayne

Survival sims have a tendency to be hard. It’s in their very nature. However, finding the right balance between difficulty and enjoyability is where the true challenge lies. Tipping the scale too far either way can lead to an uneven experience.

While Green Hell may at first seem to lean too heavily toward its more difficult sensibilities, especially in its opening hours, you'll find an experience not only ultimately well balanced but entirely engrossing.

Green Hell Review: A Thinking Man's Survival Sim

As someone who has played other survival games in Ark and Rust, games that don't lean heavily on narrative, I immediately noticed Green Hell's story. You’ll not just find yourself half-naked on a beach here.

Instead, you are one of a young couple arriving in a non-descript tropical locale with the aim of making contact with an indigenous tribe. The story sprinkles in various reasons to be intrigued, from a vague history with the tribe to the grandiose point in your expedition. However, the crux of its narrative threads lies in the disappearance of your wife Mia, your narratively convenient memory loss, and your survival struggle as you wind up lost in the titular Green Hell. 

It may seem overly cliché, and it doesn't do anything too riveting, but its inclusion gives purpose to your time in the deadly jungle, pushing you to forge on for more than the sake of exploration.

However, if you are playing Green Hell purely for the survival experience, then survival mode can be picked over the story mode, both playable in solo and co-op. Regardless of the mode you choose at the start, as you head out into the dense, sweaty jungle, the real fun begins.

Keeping track of your carbohydrates, fats, protein, and hydration are all done with the use of a handy GPS watch. However, learning how to collect freshwater, boost carbs, or keeping track of which animals provide the best sustenance will have you digging through your notebook in search of information. This investigative streak increases tenfold as you start to consider the effects of parasites and worms.

All of Green Hell’s dangerous inclusions can be the death of you. There are many times when even eating food with dirty hands causes serious issues or a desperate drink of water from a dirty river results in some adverse effect. Yet while watching your health and stamina bar steadily deplete isn’t exactly fun, trying to figure out how to counter these debilitating factors is.

And Green Hell doesn’t punish you for going in with little genre experience. Yes, you may find yourself searching for various “how-to” videos as you play, but unlike some other titles in the genre, all of the most basic information you need is either at your disposal or ready to find.

Trying out a weird-looking mushroom “for science” is a risk-reward scenario. You may start vomiting violently until falling face down in the mud, but you also discover all the effects of that mushroom, which are then logged in the notebook. 

Beyond the parasitic, Green Hell redefines self-care in survival games with bodily injuries. You’ll spend a lot of your time scanning your limbs via examination mechanics for leeches, worms, snake bites, rashes, and scrapes. Simply ignoring your issues will only cause further pain.

Unattended scrapes cause infections, bites from venomous animals eat away at your health, and worms chip away at your sanity – literally.  To combat these ailments, you'll spend a lot of time exploring and gathering plants for salves and antidotes.

Green Hell’s environments not only look good but are also so seamlessly blended that those important plants don’t stick out as items that are just waiting to be interacted with. Instead, you’ll have to genuinely search for them, but when you do find them, you'll feel a genuine sense of relief wash over you. 

Along the way, you'll interact with a diverse taxonomy of animals, some harmless, others deadly. You’ll quickly learn to scurry away at the site of a poisonous frog as it merrily hops towards you, or you'll feel the hairs stand up on the back of your neck at the rattle of a nearby snake. Alone, they're scary enough, but as each of your physical ailments become very real problems, these interactions can become terrifying. 

On top of all that is the aforementioned sanity mechanic. Leeches, bad sleep, or weird unidentified fruits can all slowly wear down your sanity. As you descend into madness, you’ll begin to hear voices and eventually start to hallucinate. If the depleting health bars and dwindling stamina meter weren’t enough to encourage self-care, the sanity meter definitely will, as those haunting voices will send shivers down your spine.

However, what may drive you even madder – in the best kind of ways – is Green Hell's map design. It's perhaps one of the most well-realized and immersive environments in the genre. The dense jungle is incredibly easy to get lost in, so you’ll need to keep your bearings with the use of maps, compasses, and distinct environmental features.

With a lack of icons typically used to show players their current position on the map, I quite often found myself using the map and compass to piece together the direction of my camp. Nothing encompassed the delirious conditions of traversal more than the time I came across a carcass, only to realize I had already passed it and was going in circles. 

Similarly, after chasing an annoyingly fast armadillo, I found myself all turned around. Despite being just a few minutes from my camp, I had no idea which direction to go. After some hopeless wandering, however, I came across a river, remembering that my camp too was based by the river. So, I followed it to eventually stumble my way back home.

This natural form of map design is a delight to traverse, and Green Hell still remains one of the few games where I figured out where to go both naturally and through intuition, rather than being told by over-bearing pings and highlighted tracks. 

Green Hell Review – The Bottom Line

Pros

  • Fun and dense survival systems
  • Accessible information via notebook
  • Story aids the experience
  • Gorgeous, logically developed environments

Cons

  • Systems can be intimidating and a little overwhelming at times

Combining the environmental realism with unforgiving yet eventually approachable survival mechanics makes Green Hell an incredibly immersive experience. There were times when the constantly depleting health and stamina bars urged me to restart a save, but perseverance felt as integral to the experience as the mechanics causing my pain.

The inclusion of a story may not be for everyone, but having a reason to explore the game's dense environments kept me far more engaged than simply building a nice-looking hut. With a creepy vibe aided by its sanity mechanics and intimidating enemies, and survival mechanics that make you think, Green Hell didn’t turn out so hellish after all.

How to Save in Green Hell https://www.gameskinny.com/qn6ls/how-to-save-in-green-hell https://www.gameskinny.com/qn6ls/how-to-save-in-green-hell Wed, 09 Jun 2021 12:00:01 -0400 Aaron Bayne

Survival game Green Hell has finally arrived on consoles, and as you tackle thirst, insanity, malnourishment, and parasites, you’ll want to know how to save as quickly and as much as possible. Why? Because you'll probably die — a lot. There are plenty of things in Green Hell that can kill you. 

Luckily, with one simple tool, it's relatively easy to do. Here's how to save in Green Hell

How to Save in Green Hell

When first starting Green Hell, choosing between story and survival mode will alter how many options you have for saving. Survival mode allows you to save through built structures. However, the story mode also provides savepoints via calendars, which can be found at abandoned outposts around the jungle.

How to Build a Save Point in Green Hell

If you search through the structure panel of your notebook, you can sift through several structures, which range from bamboo-based buildings to simple banana leaf beds. However, looking at the bottom of each page will inform you if this structure allows savepoints. Some do. Some don't. 

Since you're likely early on in the game when wondering how to save in Green Hell, you’ll want to go for the easiest to assemble Small Shelter, which will require the following crafting supplies:

  • 2x Log
  • 8x Long Stick
  • 9x Rope
  • 26x Palm Leaf

Collecting these crafting supplies is relatively easy, though it does require one tool: the bone knife. Luckily, finding a bone knife is also pretty simple. One can be found at the first abandoned village you encounter after the tutorial.

How to Find the Bone Knife

Among the ruined huts, you’ll spot a hammock that allows you to sleep. Beside the hammock lies your first bone knife, which is a surprisingly durable blade.

Now, at this point in the game, you cannot chop down any trees, but the bone knife will allow you to chop down thin trees, which are plentiful around this first village area.

Approaching and chopping down trees will provide the majority of your needed materials. After a few swipes, trees will break down into logs, long sticks, sticks, and small sticks. While sticks and small sticks aren’t needed for this structure, they are incredibly useful to have, as they are required for most other simple structures.

Rope can be found dangling down the side of larger trees. The vine-like rope is called Liana, and this too is handy to have beyond what is needed for the saving structure.

And finally, you’re palm leaves are found all around you, and are the sharper, jagged-looking leaves – not to be mixed up with the wider and greener banana leaves. You can only carry six at a time, so you’ll be carting your tropical cover back and forth for a little while. 

Once the Small Shelter is assembled, simply approach the structure, and the save option will pop up. You are allowed up to four separate saves, which will easily fill up with your various stages of near-death. Did we mention that Green Hell is pretty hard? 

Saving structures are particularly helpful when you begin to venture further afield in the jungle. If you sense danger ahead, you can quickly chop down some nearby trees and throw up a new save point.

And that's how to save in Green Hell. For more on Green Hell, consider heading over to our main jungle-survivel guides page for more tips and tricks.

Green Hell Sets Up Camp on PS4, Xbox One This Summer https://www.gameskinny.com/tzwq6/green-hell-sets-up-camp-on-ps4-xbox-one-this-summer https://www.gameskinny.com/tzwq6/green-hell-sets-up-camp-on-ps4-xbox-one-this-summer Thu, 25 Mar 2021 20:45:02 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Green Hell, developer Creepy Jar's survival game set in the depths of the Amazonian rainforest, is finally making its way to consoles this summer. The popular title, which has sold more than 1.5 million copies on PC, will release for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 9, according to developers. 

Next-gen upgrades for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S are in the works, but there is currently no release window or timeframe for either. 

In many ways, Green Hell is a lot like other survival games, such as Stranded Deep, The Forest, and Rust. Hunting, scavenging, and resource management are front and center; crafting tools and building bases to stay out of the jaws of death run a close second and third. 

The game's story and pure survival modes can be played solo or with up to three other players (for a total of four) via online co op.

Since releasing into Steam Early Access in 2018, Green Hell has seen myriad improvements to its survival systems and story. There have also been numerous craftables added to the game, as well as achievements.

A prequel update, Spirits of Amazonia Part One, released for PC in January and fleshed out the backstory of the game's protagonist, giving fans a look into how the nightmare of Green Hell came to be. 

While the console versions will include almost every bit of the Green Hell content released over the years, they won't launch with that expansion on June 4. However, a PR representative for the game told us that it would release "very shortly after for free." We'll update with a firm timeline/date when it becomes available. 

Creepy Jar's initial roadmaps had the console versions of Green Hell releasing in late 2020. Stay tuned for more on Green Hell in the coming months. We reviewed the Early Access version many moons ago, but perhaps the upcoming console launch is the perfect time to jump back in.

Green Hell Guide: How to Find All Four Legends https://www.gameskinny.com/0j64y/green-hell-guide-how-to-find-all-four-legends https://www.gameskinny.com/0j64y/green-hell-guide-how-to-find-all-four-legends Fri, 05 Feb 2021 14:21:27 -0500 Serhii Patskan

One of the biggest tasks players face in the Spirits of Amazonia DLC for Green Hell is to gain trust of the local tribe by earning reputation points. There are many tasks they will give you that will grant you these points, but the most difficult one is to find all four legends.

This guide will help you find all four legends in Green Hell. Each legend will grant you 100 reputation points, which is the most you can get in the game at this point.

Green Hell: How to Find All Four Legends

Collect the Legend Clues

Before you start the search for the four legends you can collect all the clues hidden on the Spirits of Amazonia map. These can help you locate the legends.

These clues are indicated by the stone markers with the sun on them. There are 27 clues in total, but you don't have to look for them all unless you want to.

If you don't want to waste your time on the clues, just follow our guide below and quickly find all four legends.

Green Hell Legend: The White Demon

The first legend refers to the white alligator that resides in the southeastern swamps, in the area above the sunken ship.

The alligator appears only at night, so don't waste your time looking for it in the day time. Once it gets dark go to coordinates: 36W, 41S.

The best weapon against the creature of this size is the bow, as you will need to keep distance from him.

Try to shoot him in the head, as this will kill him faster. Shots elsewhere will take much longer Four or five precise headshots will kill him.

Once the alligator is dead, it will drop a white paw, which you need to take to the tribe's elder.

Green Hell Legend: The Cursed Water

In order to solve this legend you need to find the Golden Artifact, which is located on the sunken ship at coordinates: 36W, 42S.

You need to dive and reach the part of the ship that had sunken the deepest. Then, quickly swim in the eastern direction until you reach a small air pocket.

There you can regain your oxygen and open an old chest that contains the Golden Artifact and a few other items.

Once you have the artifact in your hands, you need to travel to the waterfall in the northeastern part of the map at coordinates: 38W, 34S.

Dive right under the waterfall and locate an underwater cave. Swim through it until you reach ground.

On the surface you will see an altar, where you need to place the Golden Artifact. In order to activate the altar you need to place a campfire under it.

Green Hell Legend: The Howling Spirit

This legend will require you to defeat an evil spirit, but the task is not as hard as it may sound.

Go to coordinates 45W, 34S, or simply follow the marker indicated on the map. There you need to climb up a cliff and find a tree log that stretches across the cliff to another tree.

Once you walk to the end of the log you will notice a bike hanging off of the other tree. interact with this bike and you should see the following line:

  • And just like that the evil spirit was defeated.

This simple action will complete the third legend.

Green Hell Legend: The Craftsman

The last legend can be completed by crafting the Tribal Statue and offering it to The Elder of the Mu'agi village.

You will need to collect and craft a number of items to be able to craft the statue itself. These include:

  • 1x Cat Fang - Drops from jaguars, which can be found at the following coordinates: 37W, 36S and 42W, 37S.
  • 1x Arowana Scale - Arowana is a black fish that resides in the central river, which you can catch using a spear.
  • 1x Stick
  • 1x Wood Resin
  • 1x Feather
  • 3x Empty Mud Molds
  • 3x Molten Piece of Iron

Once you have all these ingredients you need to craft three different types of metal using the following recipes:

  1. 1x Empty Mud Mold, 1x Molten Piece of Iron, 1x Cat Fang
  2. 1x Empty Mud Mold, 1x Molten Piece of Iron, 1x Arowana Scale
  3. 1x Empty Mud Mold, 1x Molten Piece of Iron, 1x Feather

In the end you should have three different Mud Poles in your inventory. Put them in the furnace and harvest them afterwards. As a result, you will gain three pieces of metal:

  • 1x Metal Fangs
  • 1x Metal Scales
  • 1x Metal Feathers

Lastly, combine these three pieces of metal with 1x Stick and 1x Wood Resin and craft the Tribal Statue.

Once done, bring the statue to The Elder and interact with him. This will complete the final legend.

Green Hell Spirits of Amazonia Map: How to Find It in the Sunken Ship https://www.gameskinny.com/i3d10/green-hell-spirits-of-amazonia-map-how-to-find-it-in-the-sunken-ship https://www.gameskinny.com/i3d10/green-hell-spirits-of-amazonia-map-how-to-find-it-in-the-sunken-ship Thu, 04 Feb 2021 10:46:09 -0500 Serhii Patskan

Green Hell: The Spirits of Amazonia is finally out. The new update for Creepy Jar's Green-Inferno-esque survival game includes a brand new area, a new tribe, and an exciting new storyline. But getting through the new area without an actual map would be really hard, so follow this guide on how to find The Spirits of Amazonia map.

The new Green Hell area is actually quite large, and although you could obviously play the game without the map, it is highly advisable to get it as early as possible to make your walkthrough much easier.

How to Find Spirits of Amazonia Map in Green Hell

The new DLC begins on a shore near a moored boat. Of course, you won't start out with the map. So, head east. 

Your destination is a half-sunken ship in the southeastern swamps, indicated by the red marker on the map above, or by these coordinates: 36W, 42S. Make your way through the little islands and dive right under the sunken part of the ship.

Swim through the breach in the bottom of the ship, and go into the first level that contains the first chest with:

  • 1x Obsidian Stone
  • 1x Bone

Then, go up. You will quickly encounter the second chest with:

  • 1x Obsidian Bone Blade

Use the crates further up to climb up the deck and enter the cabin with another chest containing:

  • 1x Old Map

This is the map you're looking for, which shows the new Spirits of Amazonia area with all the main points of interest. Now you can find all the villages of the Amazonia tribe and earn their respect by completing their requests.

That's all you need to know on how to find the Green Hell Spirits of Amazonia map. For more Green Hell tips and tricks articles, consider visiting our dedicated hub page via the link.

Green Hell Gets Free Update, Spirits of Amazonia Part One, on January 28 https://www.gameskinny.com/fyzbg/green-hell-gets-free-update-spirits-of-amazonia-part-one-on-january-28 https://www.gameskinny.com/fyzbg/green-hell-gets-free-update-spirits-of-amazonia-part-one-on-january-28 Tue, 19 Jan 2021 17:05:47 -0500 GS_Staff

Creepy Jar's open-world survival game Green Hell is getting a new prequel update on January 28. Called Spirits of Amazonia Part One, the free update acts as a prequel to the events of the base game. 

As expected, key story details are scant, but Creepy Jar released a trailer for the Spirits of Amazonia that gives a little more insight into what fans can expect later this month. 

Creepy Jar says that the update will include four new Legendary Quests full of puzzles, as well as the addition of a new map, a new mushroom type, a poisonous tree, and a new craftable building item, the balcony.

Spirits of Amazonia will have three parts when all is said and done. According to Creepy Jar's Green Hell roadmap, Part One is arriving almost in the middle of its "Winter" release window. Part Two and Part Three are due sometime this spring and summer. 

There's currently no word on how long the first part of the free update will be. 

Green Hell released in Steam Early Access back in 2018 before hitting 1.0 in the latter portion of 2019. It's currently available on PC and Nintendo Switch. VR support for the game is coming in 2021, though there is no firm window as of this writing. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports are due in early 2021 according to the roadmap. Stay tuned.

How to Get and Use the Fishing Trap in Green Hell https://www.gameskinny.com/odm19/how-to-get-and-use-the-fishing-trap-in-green-hell https://www.gameskinny.com/odm19/how-to-get-and-use-the-fishing-trap-in-green-hell Mon, 17 Dec 2018 10:19:59 -0500 Serhii Patskan

There are many different ways how to get food in Green Hell. You can mostly rely on hunting or gathering, which takes up a lot of time. But fishing is really simple and provides you with food automatically.

All you need to do is to set up a fishing trap in a clean water and wait a bit. Soon you will see a fish inside the trap. You can repeat this process as many times as you like.

If you want to know how to find and use the fishing trap in Green Hell, then follow our guide below.

How to Get Fish Trap Blueprint

You will be able to craft the fishing trap only after you find the original blueprint. Just go to these coordinates 51’W 19’S and enter an abandoned fishing dock. Inside the shack you will find some food and three blueprints:

  • Water Filter
  • Stick Fish Trap
  • Four Prong Spear

As soon as you find the blueprints they will be automatically added to your notebook, including the fishing trap. Now you can craft the trap using the following recipe:

  • 27x Stick

How to Use Fish Trap in Green Hell

When you have crafted the trap you can place it at the edge of the water source and put some maggots or larva inside as the bait, which can be found almost anywhere.

Leave the trap for some time, which you can spend doing other things. When you come back to the trap you will find some fish inside, such as Piranha and Peacock Bass.

In this simple way you can set up several fishing traps around the map and never be out of food again.

In these few simple steps you can craft and use fishing traps in the game, and for other Green Hell guides at GameSkinny, please see the list below:

Green Hell Shelter Building Guide https://www.gameskinny.com/gnycp/green-hell-shelter-building-guide https://www.gameskinny.com/gnycp/green-hell-shelter-building-guide Mon, 15 Oct 2018 09:58:00 -0400 Serhii Patskan

Finding or building a shelter in Green Hell is an essential part of your survival gameplan. A shelter is a place where you can not only take a rest and protect yourself from the wild animals, but also save your game and continue safely onto the next day.

The first big update for Green Hell is now live in version 0.2.0, which adds a number of new animals and plants to the game, and a brand new type of shelter -- the modular shelter.

If you want to know how to build a shelter in Green Hell, including the modular one, and find the best possible locations for it, then follow our guide below for all the info you need.

How to Build a Shelter in Green Hell

Currently, you can build four types of shelters in the game: small, medium, hut, and modular. The first three are designed to sustain you during the early parts of the game, when you have only a few resources so you could build something quickly, rest and save your gameplay.

The modular shelter offers something much greater than that and it gives you a chance to build a shelter as large as you want in case you have enough building materials and a large enough area.

Small Shelter

One of the simplest types of shelter you can build in Green Hell is a small shelter that looks like a shed. It can protect you from rain, but you will sleep on the ground, which makes you vulnerable to worms.

Here is the crafting recipe for a small shelter:

  • 2x log
  • 6x long stick
  • 9x rope
  • 26x palm leaf
Medium Shelter

It is better to build a medium shelter, but you will need more materials for it. Just like the small shelter it will provide a roof over your head, but instead of lying on the ground you will now sleep on a bed made of sticks, which is a much safer way to spend your nights.

Here is the crafting recipe for a medium shelter:

  • 24x long stick
  • 10x rope
  • 59x palm leaf
Hut Shelter

The hut shelter is very similar to a small shelter in terms of conditions, but it can be built using less materials. So if for some reason you can't find enough palm leafs or lianas for your small or medium shelter, then consider building a hut shelter instead.

Here is the crafting recipe for a hut shelter:

  • 8x stick
  • 3x long stick
  • 1x rope
  • 13x palm leaf
Modular Shelter

Modular shelter consists of four parts: frame, wall, shed, and roof. Each part is crafted separately, and then combined in any way you see fit. The only limit is your imagination and the number of crafting materials in your backpack.

Modular shelter will let you not only keep yourself away from getting wet under the rain but also your campfire, which can be crafted inside your shelter. Also, you can store food in the sheds or any other items you wish.

Here are the crafting recipes for all the parts required for modular shelter:

  • Frame
    • 6x log
    • 5x long stick
    • 4x rope
  • Wall
    • 9x long stick
  • Shed
    • 2x log
    • 5x long stick
    • 5x rope
  • Roof
    • 16x palm leaf

Best Locations for Shelter in Green Hell

You don't have to build a shelter in order to spend the night, instead you can find an abandoned camp or a bed that are scattered all over the map. But you will probably need one in case you want to store food, weapons and building materials somewhere safe.

Safe-to-Live Spots

Here are the coordinates to the locations where you can find safe-to-live abandoned camps and beds:

  • 52W 17S
  • 51W 19S
  • 40W 24S
  • 46W 26S
  • 50W 27S
Avoid These Spots

You can also stumble upon tribal villages that are guarded by the natives. These camps are not safe, so try to avoid them. Here are their coordinates:

  • 47W 17S
  • 38W 18S
Safe-to-Build Spots

In case you're looking for a safe place to build your own modular shelter, then you should be looking for a place which is well-protected by the surrounding hills and has all the resources for food and building.

Here are the coordinates that fit this description the best:

  • 44W 24S
  • 46W 29S
  • 52W 28S
  • 50W 23S

All three of these locations are located relatively far away from the hostile natives, and the last one even has an oasis with everything you need. You can safely build you base there and further develop your survival skills in Green Hell.

You can now easily find a great location for your shelter and build any type of base you like. For other related Green Hell guides at GameSkinny, take a look at the links below:

Green Hell Plants Guide: Flowers, Fruits and Mushrooms https://www.gameskinny.com/je1yd/green-hell-plants-guide-flowers-fruits-and-mushrooms https://www.gameskinny.com/je1yd/green-hell-plants-guide-flowers-fruits-and-mushrooms Mon, 03 Sep 2018 19:18:25 -0400 Serhii Patskan

The green world of Green Hell, the latest survival game from Creepy Jar, is very rich and inspired by real-life plant species, which can be found in the tropics of the Amazon.

Currently, there are a limited number of plants you can collect in the game and use either as a food source or for medicinal purposes. If you wonder what types of plants in Green Hell you can actually use and discard the rest, then follow our guide below.

Green Hell Flowers, Leaves, and Trees

  • Tobacco: Pink flowers with green leaves that can be used to craft antivenom bandages.

  • Bamboo: Bamboo stalks can be used for building.
  • Plantain Lily: Purple flowers with heart-shaped leaves that can be eaten for its antivemon properties or made into a brew for dealing with venom wounds.
  • Spike Tree: Can be cut down for logs and sticks but applies venom each time you hit it.
  • Brazil Nut Tree: Brazil Nut Trees are larger than others and cannot be cut down.

  • Malanga: A short plant with large, broad leaves, the Unknown Bulb you get from these can be cooked for a source of carbohydrates, but it will give you food poisoning if eaten raw.
  • Young Palm Tree: Can give an edible Heart of Palm when cut down.
  • Coconut Palm Tree: These trees can hold up to four coconuts, which are nutritious. Throw rocks at the trees to get the coconuts loose.
  • Molineria: Yellow flowers with green leaves that can be crafted into leaf bandages and further ailment-healing bandages.

  • Unknown Herb Plant: A plant with a long purple flowering herb sticking out the top. The leaves can cure food poisoning but the purple stem causes food poisoning.
  • Quassia Amara: Red flowers that grow on short trees and are used for curing fever.
  • Water Lily: White flowers that can be found on ponds cure food poisoning.

Green Hell Fruits, Nuts, and Berries

  • Unknown Fruit Plant: Grows on small bushes, looks like an orange and satiates hunger refilling your levels of carbohydrates.

  • Monstera Deliciosa: A plant with large leaves with holes in them. The flower that grows on this plant will grow into a fruit if left long enough, the fruit itself being high in protein and carbohydrates.
  • Soursop Plant: Guanabana Fruit comes from these long-stem plants, the fruit itself a good source of carbs and hydration and useful to treat parasites.
  • Psychotria Viridis: A plant bearing small red berries, this one yields Psychotria Berries needed for ayahuasca in story mode. The berries grant some carbohydrates and hydration when eaten, but they cause food poisoning.
  • Banana: Grows on banana palms and satiates hunger with carbohydrates.
  • Cassava: Root-like brown fruit that grows on Cassava plant can be eaten only in cooked form; replenishes your carbs.
  • Unknown nut: Nuts that fall from palm trees that can be safely eaten as a source of fats.

Mushrooms

  • Phallus Indusiatus: A mushroom that is covered by a soft veil and fouond across the ground. Can be made into soup or dried for consumption.
  • Cookeina Speciosa: An orange cup-shaped mushroom that points upwards. They grow on fallen logs and can be eaten or used as fishing bait.
  • Indigo Blue Leptonia: A blue stalky mushroom that grows on Brazil nut roots. Gives a little energy when eaten and can cure parasites.
  • Unknown Mushroom: Yellow by day and glows green in the dark and can be safely consumed in raw form. Found on fallen logs.

  • Unknown Mushroom: Another yellow mushroom, these are also found on fallen logs. These are rounded, unlike the previous yellow Unknown Mushroom. Grants sanity and carbs when eaten.
  • Unknown Mushroom: A green mushroom resembling coral found on rocks, gives food poisoning if eaten in any form.
  • Marasmius Haematocephalus: A small white and red fungus resembling a parasol, this mushroom can be found on roots in caves. Can be eaten to cure a fever but will dehydrate.

That is all for all the consumable plants guide, and of course, the developers will add even more plant species to the game in the future. So come back soon for more Green Hell guides at GameSkinny!

Green Hell Early Access Impressions https://www.gameskinny.com/x0e3y/green-hell-early-access-impressions https://www.gameskinny.com/x0e3y/green-hell-early-access-impressions Thu, 30 Aug 2018 13:07:36 -0400 Serhii Patskan

Fans of survival games like The Forest and Stranded Deep will be pleasantly surprised by Creepy Jar studio's new game Green Hell. It offers a different view on a survival genre that really makes you meticulously think out all your actions during the gameplay.

It has everything that a survival game needs, including collecting/crafting items, hunting, and building mechanics. But what makes it stand out from other survival games is an attention to detail that makes the survival aspect of Green Hell quite challenging.

The game is currently in Early Access, so if you'd like to learn whether it's worth buying the game now or waiting for a full release, keep on reading our impressions of Green Hell's first playable version.

Story and Setting

Currently, the game has two playable modes: Survival and Challenges. There's also a Story mode present in the main menu, but it's not playable just yet. Instead, you can get a taste of the story during the first part of the Survival mode that offers a glimpse of what the Story mode can be all about.

You begin stranded on the shores of an Amazonian jungle. Two young scientists land in the unknown area to get to know the Yabahuaca tribe that resides somewhere in the jungle. Your job is to get to the first camp and search for the tribe.

In the first camp, you're given tasks that serve as a tutorial to understand the basic game mechanics such as collecting and crafting, eating and taking care of your wounds. You can read more about these aspects of the gameplay in our beginner's guide here.

The most fascinating part of Green Hell is its visual presentation. The game looks absolutely gorgeous. Well, at least the nature part is really awesome. You can tell the developers took their time to create realistic textures for the foliage, water, and surrounding areas.

The lighting is perfect in this game. You can see every glare and ray as precisely as in real life. If you wander too deep into the jungle, it gets really dark and hard to see anything -- creating the need to craft a torchlight or set up a small campfire.

Apparently, the developers have studied actual Amazonian forests and carefully recreated the atmosphere and setting of the jungle with all its intricacies.

The jungle is thick and full of various plant and animal species, which you can gather or hunt. But things aren't as sweet as they seem at first glance, and sooner or later you'll get bitten by a venomous snake or eat an unknown mushroom that will make you puke.

One more thing that makes the jungle alive is the ambient sound. It's really subtle and doesn't distract you from the game, but every little rustle or gust of wind adds to the realism. Eventually, you'll find yourself completely immersed in the gameplay.

At this point, it's hard to say how big the island actually is, since there isn't a map in the menu. The area will probably increase when the game is finally ready for the story, but right now it's still a mystery.

Regardless, the general area is big enough to explore for hours upon hours. Sometimes you'll stumble into other campsites that are likely abandoned, and the only NPCs you meet are the aborigines of the Yabahuaca tribe.

It's easy to spot them in the jungle by their characteristic songs. So if you hear tribal singing, and you're not ready to accept a fair fight, then it's better to quickly leave the area for good.

Gameplay Mechanics

The mechanics in the Early Access version of Green Hell offer enough to survive on such simple things like wooden sticks, stones, and liana ropes. Out of these three basic materials, you can craft everything from a simple axe to an entire shelter.

Building a shelter is especially important if you want to save your gameplay, as that's the only place where you can do so. The shelter also provides an opportunity to rest in order to keep your sanity levels from falling. Let them fall too low, and you'll be vulnerable to wild animals.

Another classical survival feature is hunger. Eating and drinking are absolutely required for survival. You can find food almost anywhere: on the trees, on the ground, or by hunting animals. The meat has to be cooked as well, or you might get sick.

Speaking of getting sick, healing wounds or sicknesses is also a huge part of the gameplay. One little mistake of drinking a dirty water or falling off of a cliff may result in low levels of energy and sanity. But fortunately, there are well-designed mechanisms to treat wounds in the game with the help of special plants.

All the information about valuable plant species is collected in your notebook. You can gather these plants and keep them in your backpack for further application. On all other occasions, you just need to be careful and remember what is safe to do and what isn't.

One of the most unique mechanics in Green Hell is the body inspection. If you notice that your health is rapidly reducing, you can activate an inspection tool in your menu and examine every part of your body for any possible injuries. Most likely you will see a scratch or a wound that needs to be patched.

The hunting and combat mechanics are really simple in Green Hell. Right now you have one basic attack and one basic block action when using a melee weapon. You can also throw melee weapons at any target by pressing the mouse wheel.

Most animals will run away from you, but others, like Jaguars, can be a bit more dangerous. It's better to avoid them all together since their meat isn't too nutritious anyway.

Hopefully, this aspect of the gameplay will be improved for the full release of the game, but for now, you can practice throwing hand-made axes at wild boars and birds.

The Summary

At this stage the game runs really well, no bugs and glitches detected yet. So the only thing that developers need to do is to add actual content -- because right now endless survival without any purpose gets boring really quickly.

You could try out the Challenges mode for three types of challenges that are limited by time, but when those are done, there really isn't much more to do in Green Hell. But that's probably the purpose of the Early Access titles -- to introduce the possibilities of the gameplay and nothing more.

Well, Creepy Jar managed to create something really cool and very much playable. If the Story mode will be fully realized and the game turns out to be as good as it seems at first glance, then the developers have another winner on their hands.

[Note: An Early Access copy of Green Hell was provided by Creepy Jar for the purpose of this article.]

Green Hell Beginner Tips and Tricks https://www.gameskinny.com/azx3e/green-hell-beginner-tips-and-tricks https://www.gameskinny.com/azx3e/green-hell-beginner-tips-and-tricks Wed, 29 Aug 2018 11:20:19 -0400 Serhii Patskan

A new psychological survival game from the developers of Dying Light and Dead Island is now available at Steam. Green Hell throws players into the unknown jungle with almost nothing to survive with.

The game's still in Early Access, which means that it offers only a limited amount of tools to work with, but it's already a lot of fun. If you're one of those lucky gamers who decided to try the game out early, but unsure what to do in this game, then follow our guide below for some of the most essential survival tips.

Take Care of Your Food Supply

The food system in Green Hell is really something you've never seen before. It essentially breaks down all the available nutrients in the game into four categories:

  • Proteins (red)
  • Carbohydrates (yellow)
  • Fats (green)
  • Water (blue)

Each of them is indicated by a different color on your smartwatch that is given to you at the beginning of the game. Each of the four nutrients has a gauge that goes down depending on the amount of energy you've wasted with such usual survival activities as running, jumping and getting injured.

Raw Food

Different types of food provide various amounts of each of the four elements. For example, meat is the natural source of proteins, while carbohydrates usually come from fruits. But some of the fruits or nuts may also contain fats and water, such as Coconuts.

Pick up everything you see on your way and try it out. Only by tasting things you will know what effect it has on your body. Sometimes you can eat an unknown mushroom that will poison you for the time being, but you mark its effects in your notebook and will never make the same mistake again.

Make sure to cook your meat or you may get sick from the raw meat. In order to cook it, you need to craft a campfire. You can find the recipe in your notebook. Cooking your food also increases your levels of sanity.

Here are a few simple things you can cook:

  • 1x coconut half +1x meat + water
  • 2x coconut halves + 1x bone + water
  • 1x coconut half + 1x tobacco leaf + water
  • 1x coconut half + 1x Amara leaf + water
Drinking Water

All in all, sustaining yourself in the jungle is very important. Fortunately, there are a lot of sources of drinking water everywhere, so you will have at least that one in abundance.

Never ever drink dirty water or you will get sick. If you can't find drinking water around, then take a coconut and cut it in half. Leave the two halves on the ground near your shelter, and when it's going to rain the halves will collect the rainwater, which is good for drinking.

In this simple way, you will always have drinking water around!

Collect and Craft Items

Crafting is really simple and easy to use in Green Hell. First, you need to open your inventory by pressing the Tab key, and then you can choose to craft items from the menu on the right.

All the recipes are already in your notebook at the start of the game. There you will find how many sticks, ropes and other items you need in order to craft everything from the simplest campfire to a shelter.

To start the crafting process you need to:

  1. Pull out items from your backpack
  2. Place them on the crafting table
  3. Press Craft.

Most of the items require sticks, stones, and ropes, which can be crafted from lianas hanging from the trees. This means that you need to collect as many of these things as you can find.

For example, if the recipe requires small sticks, then you can use a machete to cut down a tree, and then cut down the trunk into smaller pieces, which are the small sticks. So basically, everything can be chopped into smaller items if needed.

Heal Your Wounds

You'll be getting a lot of injuries during your adventures in the jungle. These need to be taken care of as soon as possible or you'll get a lot weaker and your sanity levels may dwindle, which in turn will make you defenseless against wild animals.

Craft Medical Items

If you get injured, you first need to inspect your body parts with the help of the Inspect tool in your inventory. Switch between different parts of your body and use the RMB to rotate your limbs. Do this to check both your arms and legs.

If you notice a wound, then it's time to collect Molineria -- a plant that can be used to heal wounds. You will find the picture of Molineria in your notebook under the Medicine tab.

The only problem is that the game doesn't highlight Molineria in the wilderness, which means that you have to carefully look out for it on your own. As soon as you find it, use your machete to chop down its leaves. Craft some patches with those leaves, and then apply the bandages on the wounds from your inventory.

Craft Antivenom Items

On your journey, you will inevitably get bitten by venomous snakes. The poisonous effect will last until you treat the wound or you lose a lot of life. There is one simple recipe how you can heal yourself:

  1. Craft a bandage using Molineria
  2. Collect Tobacco leaves
  3. Combine these two on a crafting table
  4. Craft Antivenom

Learn Your Controls

Green Hell doesn't always tell you what controls are available in the game. So before venturing into the unknown take time and learn all the most important keys for your gameplay.

Your most important item is the smartwatch, which can be activated by pressing the F key. You can then change the information displayed using your mouse scroll. There are three types of displays:

  • Food levels
  • Time and date
  • Compass

The mouse scroll button can also be used to throw your weapons at wild animals or hanging fruits. But be sure to remember where your weapon landed afterward or you might not see it again. Don't worry even if you lose it, as you can always craft a new one.

As already mentioned all of your crafting recipes can be found in the notebook, which can be activated by pressing the N key. There is also a walkie-talkie available in the game, which can be activated by pressing the T key. But since there is no full story mode in the game yet, it can be ignored for the time being.

The rest of the keys are your typical walk (WASD), run (Shift), jump (Space) and crouch (Ctrl) controls.
