Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Small Cabin (also known as Mid-Sized Cabin) is one of several types of shelter in this game. Sleeping in the Small Cabin will restore fatigue and you can save the game inside. After finishing the building, player can see home icon from anywhere on the island.

You can go inside of this shelter.

Since there is an open window on the wall, lighting a fire inside will most likely attract unwanted attention of cannibals and mutants.

Small Cabin is relatively cheap to build, but does not provide as much space as Log Cabin.


  • To have a place to sleep (pressing and holding 'Z' button if available)
  • To regain energy and restore fatigue by sleep
  • To save your progress (pressing and holding 'C' button)
  • You can build a fire inside during the rain, and it won't be extinguished
  • Protection from cold and rain
  • All shelters come with a house overlay icon which marks its location, it can be seen anywhere in the game world. This is advantageous to the player when adventuring, so they can always find their way home. The player can press R on this icon to change its color, or change it to ‘grey’ to switch the icon off.
