Day and Night

The game alternates between day and night. Night is more challenging because temperatures drop quickly. Campfires are essential to survive the night.
At day, your temperature increase so you can't die from cold.
Starting from half a day of play, the night becomes even more dangerous. Ghouls, previously harmless, begin to attack you. Each passing night will introduce a new type of aggressive ghoul. These include:
  • Normal ghouls: Slow but strong.
  • Fast ghouls: Low health and less strength.
  • Explosive ghouls: They carry dynamite that will explode upon their death.
  • Radioactive ghouls: Being near them significantly increases your Geiger counter.
