Capybara’s dungeon-crawling adventure Below doesn’t hold your hand. It can be cryptic and at times obtuse, but then again, it’s a game about discovery. Some initial confusion and misunderstandings just come with the territory as you suss out how the systems and mechanics feed into each other.
After chatting with Brett and answering some of his early-game questions about Below, I figured my pointers could also be put to good use on Destructoid. This is by no means a complete guide, and I’m hesitant to overshare since Below revels in mystery, but these tips should help you get started.
