A brilliant magenta mineral only available as massive chunks embedded into the terrain, Bittergem can be found by looking for clusters of magenta crystals on the surfaces nearby.

Red Sugar[edit | edit source]

One of the most essential resources, Red Sugar takes the form of bright red crystal formations scattered throughout the caves. It's vital to your survival, as Red Sugar is the only way to recover lost health besides calling for a Supply Pod - which costs Nitra.
ERR://23¤Y%/[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Error Cube
A strange black rubik's cube-esque object with pulsating white grooves. It is a very rare resource that is not listed on any biome, and its uses are currently unknown.
This 'mineral' (though it might better be described as an artifact) can be located by the presence of bright gray spikes on the surrounding rock. These spikes seem to pulse with energy, though once the artifact has been removed from the deposit the spikes fade to dull, lifeless grey.
When examined, the characters will comment on its bizarre nature and strange appearance.
