Description

The Dark Village is a limited space, resembling a modern German village. This level has no daylight cycle and remains in everlasting night. The village itself and its surroundings cover approximately 5 km^2. In this area, you will find: various housing units, pathways, gardens, a cave inside a hillside, a church and various stores. Each of these shops will anomalously restock themselves every 24 hours. Additionally, all foods within this level will not spoil over time. Behind the shops, there are storage and maintenance rooms, each labelled "Wartungsraum" and "Lagerraum" respectively. Once every week, rain will fall from the sky and flood the streets. Inside the housing units, basic equipment can be expected; they may contain technological equipment as well. Beyond the village are the wheat fields, where entities are most commonly found. Namely: Smilers, Hounds, Tulips and The Keymaster. The harvested wheat can be processed as normal, and safely consumed. It is unknown if other crops can be grown in these fields.
