Home Behind – General Tips and Info

Just a quick guide I’m throwing together of things I’ve been learning along the way as I play.

Starting tips

Looting tips

  • Dry grass, herbs, and rags have a weight value of ZERO so you can pick them up and keep them in your inventory for later use. This is nice because you can pick up as much as you want and just have it in your inventory to craft with later.
  • In the desert: you can click repeatedly on passing tumbleweeds and they will occasionally give you items. I’ve only ever gotten grass and bugs so far, but grass is super important for crafting so I’ll gladly take it.
  • Armor and weapons contribute to your weight so be wary of that when crafting them

For tools in the first area I recommend you build the cookware, torch, cart, workshop in that order.

  • Cookware helps immensely because you can cook the meat you pick up and make jerky so that you have a preservative food that won’t rot in your inventory or decrease your mood.
  • Torch is important to at least get to level 3 at some point to negate night time mood decreasers.
  • Cart is important for more space and a little speed boost. Space is hard to come by in the game when you’re trying to have enough materials to craft higher up items
  • Workshop is important because it allows you to make better armor and weapons.
  • Always pick up shards, postcards, papers, and recipes (see picture section for what they look like)
  • I find it best to just disassemble toys to get the materials they have. Giving them to the children isn’t worth it in my opinion.

Crafting and upgrade suggestions

If glue is hard to come by, stock up on rice because it doesn’t rot. When you get to a water source that is clean and free to refill as much as you want (and hopefully by this point you will have at least 5 water jugs) then.

  • Crafting glue requires level 3 workshop and level 2 cookware
  • Cook the rice (1 uncooked rice x 1 clean water)
  • Make glue (1 cooked rice x 1 clean water)
  • Refill your water jugs as necessary.
