If you are new and are looking for a guide to play Klei Entertainment’s Oxygen Not Included, hopefully this beginner’s guide will help you learn the basics of the 2D survival-simulator. Oxygen Not Included is out now for PC via Steam Early Access.
I should note that this guide is not for veterans or folks that have been playing Oxygen Not Included for a month or longer, but for those who’ve just picked up the game and are looking to play it more efficiently. If you want to know the basics the description sits below, but if you want tips and tricks right away a guide by CrypticFox is up through the given link.
“Oxygen Not Included is a space-colony simulation game. Deep inside an alien space rock your industrious crew will need to master science, overcome strange new lifeforms, and harness incredible space tech to survive, and possibly, thrive.”
The first video that teaches quite a bit of stuff comes in by Randomise User, who covers 10 beginner tips to getting started. Although the video is kinda old, to this day it helps a lot of newcomers. This actually means a lot given how few good beginner guide videos are out regarding this game and that it’s two months old — as of this writing.
With that said you can watch the video guide below that comes with timestamps:
- 0:00 – Explanation Intro
- 0:44 – Get Digging
- 1:49 – Planning and Building Rooms
- 3:13 – Know Your Materials
- 3:57 – Bogs
- 5:43 – Researching
- 6:53 – Making Food and Oxygen
- 7:47 – More Colonists
- 8:17 – Focus Your Colonists
- 9:06 – Play the Game
Next up comes a guide about stabilizing your colony. This step can have a big impact on how long your colony can survive in that the video explores a way on how to setup a colony in the first 10 cycles to stabilize resources and make further growth much easier.
The video comes in by the same guy who made the Steam guide above, which is CrypticFox.
The game released back on May 18th and is now available over on Steam Early Access and runs for $24.99.
