Official Description Edit

After barely escaping through the Molten Gateway, our survivors plummet headfirst into the ruins of a sickly city ruled by a ravenous beast. Work together to cook fine dishes and placate the Eternal Gnaw's hunger to avoid the curse of its terrible plague. Cook well enough, and you may even get to go home.

Gears Mechanics Edit

Setting Up Edit

Players can join other players either via Quick Match, which drops them into the best server the matchmaker finds, or by manually browsing available servers. Alternatively, a player can request a custom server via Custom Match, allowing them to set the server's name, description, password and whether or not it is associated with a Steam Group. All Gorge matches take place on special dedicated servers, and as such, players cannot host their own servers.

It is not necessary to have a full set of three players to start a match, though it is recommended to do so. A round will begin either when all three player slots are filled up, or when all players in an incomplete party vote to begin without the full three.

Gameplay Edit

A character in Gorge gameplay mode does not have any Health, Hunger or Sanity, and only five inventory slots (four normal ones and a Hand slot). Characters spawn at the Ancient Gateway. The game is governed by the Gnaw's patience meter, which depletes over time. The players have to feed the Gnaw and put the Ancient Key in the Altar of Gnaw before the meter fully runs out, or the player party will be turned into Merms. The Ancient Key is brought from Mumsy for 3 Gnaw's Favors, which are earned by feeding the Gnaw certain dishes.

Prototype Tips Edit

  • There is a patch of pre-grown Potatoes by the Swamp Pig Village, yielding 4 Potatoes and 2 Rot. Harvesting them will allow the team to get a head start on making food, especially since Potato Chips, a snack, can be made with 3 Potatoes.
  • Dishes that give Gnaw's Favors and the equipment used to make them (as well as other dishes that produce the currency needed to buy that equipment, earlier on) should be prioritized.
  • It is possible to access seeds for Garlic and Toma Root without buying the Iron Key (and access to Pipton) by buying the Packet of Mixed Seeds.
  • Since most picked food items rot quickly it is not recommended to harvest all berries or foliage until they are needed. This also applies to fully formed plant crops as most will eventually rot/wither away. However, even if picked just before the plant crops rot they will give the vegetable at full durability.
  • One of the easiest dishes to make is Stone Soup, requiring only 1 Rock, 1 Berry and 1 Foliage. It is also very rewarding for a cheap to make snack, granting 10 Old Coins. It counts as Soup and Snack.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • The Gorge, through its associated skins, was first made known to players through an accidental leak on May 23, 2018, where the event was called the Quagmire.
  • The event is associated with the Culinarian and Victorian Skin sets.
  • On June 14th, 2018, Klei posted a link to a recipe book that contains all recipes that have been discovered so far.
  • Players were able to die by placing logs near a campfire next to the Elder Swamp Pig and taking a fatal amount of fire damage. However, they could be revived by other players much like in The Forge. If all players are dead or are not resurrected, they would remain deceased until mermification, where the players would be revived just to be turned into merms. [1] [2] This mechanic was removed in a later update. [3] [4]

Simply holding spacebar will play the animation and revive the character with 20% of their max HP. They will also keep all items they had on them as well. In addition the game is permanently softlocked if everyone dies until the very end, where all characters are resurrected just in time to be merms!"
