The Kickstarter campaign for Green Hell: The Board Game, based on the hit survival video game, has only started yesterday. Just after 7 hours, the developers from Galaktus Games and the fan community could celebrate reaching the 100% goal that was set at 45 000€. This guarantees that the project will be finalized! But this is not the end. There are still 17 days left till the end of the campaign and there are more stretch goals to be unlocked.
Green Hell: The Board Game – new Kickstarter campaign trailer
The Kickstarter campaign was originally launched on August 3. However, after the first few days, the creators made the difficult decision to cancel it, even though 65% of the goal has been reached and there was still plenty of time left. The Galaktus Games team has decided to follow the community feedback gathered during the campaign. Thanks to that they could implement many improvements and re-launch the Kickstarter on September 1st with the new, less expensive Core Game for only 62€.
“The re-launched campaign is an amalgamation of new opportunities and possibilities which opened up during the first campaign and the community feedback. All of this resulted in lower prices for our Backers, KS exclusive content, longer Early Bird period, upgraded component content (dual-layered player and camp boards), social stretch goals to engage more of the community and many more. This combination turned out to be a recipe for success – and the project was funded faster than we expected. It took us 7 hours and we are determined to grow it even more with the help of the Kickstarter backer community.” said Mateusz “Vik” Sochoń, lead designer at Galaktus Games.
More than 600 backers have managed to raise over 59 000€ and thus unlocked two more stretch goals, which include additional map cards and new mechanics added to the game. The clock is still ticking! Those who decide to support the project will also receive a free Steam copy of Green Hell by Creepy Jar, but the stock is limited, so hurry up. Backers who will support the project within the first 48 hours will also get a set of four Skull Dials for free.

About Green Hell: The Board Game
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.
The game consists of 4 player cards and boards, over 100 cards that are elements of the map, 154 polyomino tiles needed to craft necessary items, over 230 other cards and tokens, as well as 14 dice and dice roller. The Core Pledge is priced at 62€, but it can be expanded with add-ons such as a unique creepy tree dice roller or inserts to organize game elements.
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.
