Story intro

The player's character, referred as a "slugcat", uses spears and rocks to survive a hostile, ruined, and obtuse 2D world in search of the family from whom it was separated. The player is given little explicit guidance and is free to explore the world in any direction via pipes and passages that pass through 1600 static screens, each with randomized enemies. The Slugcat can jump and use debris as weapons to avoid and hurt other creatures while foraging for sparse food, which is used to hibernate in scarce, designated safe rooms. Hibernation resets the day cycle and saves the player's progress. If the player does not reach the hibernation point before the end of the day, a crushing rain will pour, both flooding the world and possibly pummeling the Slugcat to death.However, if the player has not eaten sufficient food, then it will not be allowed to hibernate. Upon death, the Slugcat returns to the last hibernation save point. The player also loses a karma point, which are indicated at the bottom of the screen. Karma is gained upon successfully hibernating, and the player can shield their current karma level by eating a yellow flower. The flower appears at the start of each area and is re-planted wherever the Slugcat dies. The player needs to meet a karmic threshold to reach specific areas of the game. Enemies range from camouflaged plants to large vultures to Komodo dragon-like lizards and large aquatic creatures. Many enemies can kill the Slugcat in one hit, and some species have internal variation, such as the pink lizards that can climb. The enemies spawn at random, such that the player cannot progress through trial and error experimentation. Enemies possess dynamic AI and exist in the game's world perpetually, even when not on the same screen as the player. Players are expected to mainly evade the enemies, but they do need to experiment with spears to climb walls and knock fruit out of trees. It is possible to kill enemies through the use of prolonged attacks, though it is usually more recommended to just attack them to ward them off. However, this becomes more of a requirement in the harder difficulty, where Slugcat must consume more meat to hibernate. The Slugcat can hold two objects at once and switch between them. It can also eat power-up plants, which grant status effects, such as slowing time.
