Technology points[edit | edit source]

Technology is unlocked by three types of technology points. These points are obtained by different actions, as well as items and study of items. Essential to progress are the Study table in the church basement and the science and faith points that are used to study items. Eating Cake gives the player a temporary buff that boosts the amount of points earned from studying items.

"Hand-crafting skills, and your ability to work with materials". Anything involving physical labor generates Red Tech Symbol.png points. Actions include operating machines in the farm, cutting down trees, and mining stone and coal.

"Knowledge about the nature of things, and of nature itself". Anything involving organic materials generates green points. This means cutting down weeds, gathering wood and farming.

"Spiritual knowledge of the immaterial world". Blue tech points are often among the hardest to earn in the early game. Tasks involving the morgue, graveyard and alchemy often generate them but many of these aren't options until later. The best early source of Blue Tech Symbol.png is the study table. Organs are studied to gain Blue Tech Symbol.png as well as gravestones, fences and alchemical substances like powders, liquids and extracts. The study table is unlocked after the player gets access to the Church.

Another way to gain Blue Tech Symbol.png is producing Hemp ropes, Polished stone bricks, Steel Parts or Advanced conical flasks. Each time you produce one of these items, you gain 1 Blue Tech Symbol.png.

Study table[edit | edit source]

Once you progress through the main quest to unlock the church and give sermons or upon clearing debris in the tunnels under your home, you unlock the Study Table. It can be found beneath the church in the Alchemy lab. The study table is used to study items. After an item has been studied it cannot be studied again and you will obtain both technology points as well as possible Decomposition products. Organic materials tend to generate Green Tech Symbol.png points, inorganic materials (Iron, Stone, Tools) generate Red Tech Symbol.png points, and mortuary, graveyard, and alchemy items generate Blue Tech Symbol.png points. What an item provides when studied is seen next to the "Study Not Complete" text when hovering over an item. Studying most items requires faith and Science Points (except most Alchemy items that only require Science Points). Faith can be obtained by holding sermons in the church on Pride Day, and Science points can be obtained by using paper, notes, or chapters in the Study Table.

Books[edit | edit source]

The Astrologer sells books at Tier 2 and tier three that can be used to instantly gain 25 tech points of one of three colours.
