In the desert, with all the dunes, sand, and scorching heat, the occasional oasis is a surefire way to survive longer. That’s because the latest update for Starsand has introduced crocodiles as the newest inhabitants of the world. For those who meet them while taking some time to cool off, there are only two choices: enter a tough fight or turn around and run.

Those who choose the former and win, try out some truly nutritious new ingredients. Of course, it helps if you can cook them, and you can do it with the new fireplace, introduced as well in the new update. In addition, you can dress those wounds with the new bandages.

Here’s what arrived with the new update:

  • Difficulty settings. Four presets (plus custom) to choose from when starting a new game.
  • ​2 new recipes to be found around the map:
    • Fireplace + Double bed
    • Armor stand + Bullseye

Starsand is available on PC and has joined Steam Early Access last November 2021. It's a mystic survival game where players are put in an open world full of danger. To survive, players need to hunt for food, make weapons, and build a shelter. With no rescue in sight, do you have what it takes to survive?
