FANDOM


Resources are a central mechanic in A Dark Room; acquiring them allows the player to build, craft, or purchase weapons, armour, or a variety of other useful items.

On the mobile version, owning more than 5000 of any resource will cause thieves to be introduced into the game, stealing 10 wood, 5 fur and 5 meat every 10 seconds. Once the thieves have been introduced, falling below 5000 of any resource will not remove the thieves. The thieves will continue taking resources until the game ends, or until the player catches a thief in the 'Thief' event.
