In less than a week, on August 3, the long-awaited campaign for the board game adaptation of Green Hell will begin. Almost 7 000 people are waiting for the start of the project on Kickstarter. The developers from Galaktus Games have recently prepared a series of videos showing the mechanics, rules and gameplay of this survival co-op game. First positive reviews are also beginning to appear in the media. Those who decide to back the project on day one will receive a unique dice tower for free.

Green Hell: The Board Game is a cooperative survival game. Jake, known to all fans of the video version, is stranded in the Amazon forest searching for his lost wife, trying to survive in this harsh, and unwelcoming environment. The players are all members of a Search & Rescue team sent with the sole task of locating and retrieving him. Each member 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 them to complete the mission successfully.

First materials about the game prepared by the creators of the Youtube board gaming channels are now available online. The Galaktus Games team visited the Polish channel ON TABLE to play Green Hell: The Board Game together with the channel’s creator. The authors of Not Bored Gaming channel from the UK and PottGamer - Boardgames channel from Germany also had an opportunity to test the game. Both shared their positive impressions of the game with their viewers. Mark from Not Bored Gaming pointed out the satisfying difficulty level of the game.

Those waiting for the campaign to start can also check out the videos published on Galaktus Games' channel. Viewers can learn how to prepare for the game and set up all available elements before the start. Green Hell: The Board Game 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. In the second material Mateusz "Vik" Sochoń, the game's lead designer, explains step by step how to navigate in the world of Green Hell. The jungle and its challenges awaiting the Rescue Party will randomly change every time which makes each playthrough a unique experience. In the newest video viewers can see how a real gameplay session of Green Hell: The Board Game looks like.

Green Hell: The Board Game will make its way to Kickstarter on August 3!
