Keen Games, the development team behind Enshrouded, shared a new beginner tips video as the highly successful indie survival game has now passed 1.5 million players. The reception has also been positive thanks an 86% approval rating from user reviews.
Character abilities and skills can be added by spending skill points gained with experience, whether through combat, mining, or expanding your map. Making friends with specific NPCs will allow you to upgrade your gear depending on your playstyle. Enshrouded players should also remember: if it’s green, the resin is lean – if it’s brown, many resin fall down. Finally, a few words on taking on the different kinds of Shroud and ensuring your friends don’t fall to the same fate. Second-hand gear can give them a helping hand (plus, friends don’t let friends adventure underdressed.)
Of course, Keen Games has already released several hotfixes and a full-fledged update, improving stability, performance, and User Interface.
