Getting Started[]

At the start of the game you will find a lot of resources in the first spawn/home area called Hidden Waterfall Oasis. There are a lot of tips on How To Play all adding up to one general rule: Find new items, identify them, and then test if you can change them to better fit your needs.

The three things that affect your Life Expectancy, Stamina, and Energy are Eat ico.png eating, Drink ico.png drinking, and MindIcon SleepSpot.pngsleeping. When you first wake up in the morning check these three factors (which are represented as three circles): You will only see a single generalized circle in the game unless they are critically low.

The Developers are not holding your hands and providing easy tips, so be bold, be curious... and be alert!

The starting area is safe from threats from Wildlife but soon you will venture far away from your first Oasis to find new Locations and foraging spots.

Go forth and multiply!
