New: Wasps

A new enemy has infiltrated the yard: Wasps!

  • Battle with wasps and drones that guard their mini hives across the upper yard.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for the hidden main nest.
  • A word of caution: piss off their kin and you'll release the full fury of the hive.

New Boss: Wasp Queen

Within the hidden wasp hive, a new boss awaits... the Wasp Queen.

New: Super Duper (Item Duplication Machine)

  • The Super Duper is a new piece of equipment installed in the Oak Lab that duplicates gear and items using Raw Science.
  • Find Duper Discs in the yard labs, which upgrade the Super Duper to clone even more items. The first disc unlocks operation of the Super Duper, while the other discs unlock duping of higher-tier equipment and items.
  • Any equipment that is duped will include all the item's Smithing upgrades.
  • Higher-tier equipment costs more Raw Science to dupe.
  • It can even duplicate trinkets, unique items, and upgrade stones!
  • Example: Duplicate an upgraded equipment set for your friends if they are joining your party mid-way through your adventure!

New: Coziness Levels

  • Buildings now exude cozy vibes when you are nearby. If you are around enough cozy buildings, your level of coziness will rise.
  • For each new level of coziness you reach, you can unlock new things:
    • New decorative building recipes
    • A mutation useful for base building
    • New emotes to expand your body language
  • Being in a cozy location will also give you status effects that decrease your hunger and thirst drain and slowly heal you.
  • Multiple buildings of the same type don't give you the same level of coziness. For example, one bed will provide lots of coziness, but a second bed of the same type will only give you a little more coziness.
  • There are five levels of coziness. Your current coziness level will show on your HUD if it is at least 1.
  • Some existing decorative buildings are now unlocked via the coziness system instead of by analyzing a material (such as the Grandfather Clock).

New: Handy Gnat


  • As Handy Gnat, you can fly around to build and customize bases to your heart's content.
  • In order to use Handy Gnat, you must have the "Handy Gnat Unlocked" custom game option toggled on. This option is on by default in Creative and Creative with Bugs game modes. For Survival game modes, you must convert your game to a Custom Game first in the Game Settings menu to enable this feature.
  • Once enabled, Handy Gnat can be activated in the Crafting menu or the Construction radial.
  • Handy Gnat can build from storage near your teen and even haul Grass Planks and Weed Stems.

Super Duper Update Additional Custom Game Options

All Mutations Unlocked:

  • Start with all Mutations unlocked and available.

Fully Yoked:

  • Start with all Milk Molar infusions fully maxed out.

Handy Gnat Enabled:

  • Allows you to activate the Handy Gnat build helper.

"All Recipes Unlocked and Free" has been split into two separate options.: All Recipes Unlocked, and All Recipes Free.

Super Duper Update Loot Luck

Increase the chance of obtaining rare drops and receive more loot in general! Loot luck comes in 2 forms:

Generic Loot Luck

  • Increases drop rate for all items on all creatures.

Targeted Loot Luck

  • Greatly increases the drop rate for all items from a specific creature type (for example, "Loot Luck: Black Widow" will increase the drop rate specifically for black widows).

This new luck status effect can be found in various places, most easily by utilizing the new "Rub For Luck" feature on all the stuffed creature buildings!


Super Duper Update Turret Improvements

  • The Pebblet Turret and Pollen Turret have been converted to be a single Turret called "Acorn Turret" that can load different ammo types like a bow.
  • When in the Turret, you can press 'R' or Right Bumper to swap ammo types on the fly. The new ammo types you can craft are:
    • Rocky Rounds
      • Pebblet rounds made smooth with bug acid. Pack a punch and push targets back.
    • Groundy Rounds
      • Sticky turret rounds that don't do a lot of damage but can ground flying insects with ease.
    • Pointy Rounds
      • Sharp and simple. Very small cooldown between shots.
    • Sappy Rounds
      • Gooey rounds that are perfect for slowing down enemy crawlers.
    • Burny Rounds
      • Hot little suckers that can set the ground around them ablaze.
  • Pollen Turret recipe and Pollen Turret Science Store entry have been removed.
    • If you previously purchased either the Pollen Turret or Pebblet Turret, you will have access to the new "Acorn Turret" building recipe.
    • If you previously purchased both Turrets, you will be refunded 4,000 Raw Science.
  • Turret aiming angles have been increased so you can aim higher and lower.
  • You can now see the health of the turret while inside of it.

Super Duper Update Steam Deck Support

Grounded has been updated to include official Steam Deck support. Fixed issues and improvements include:

  • The game now boots past the initial loading screen.
  • The Xbox log-in window properly displays.
  • Tuned the default graphics settings for Steam Deck to provide an enjoyable experience. Also includes some Steam Deck-specific optimizations.
  • Steam Deck virtual keyboard pops up when selecting any input text field in the game (entering a multiplayer game password, naming your trail marker / storage, pet, etc.)
  • Control prompts no longer flip flop between displaying gamepad and mouse/keyboard controls when using the touch pad or gyro.

The Steam store page will not reflect this official support until after the 1.2 Public Test period is complete.

Super Duper Update Quality of Life Features

View Enemy Status Effects:

  • Status Effects applied to creatures now appear beneath the enemy health bar while you are attacking them.

Building Hold to Place Many:


  • You can press and hold the build action and move your cursor to place many structural buildings all at once. You can also bind the "Place Many" control (default unbound) to start Place Many with one button press instead of using the "Hold Build" action to activate.
  • Example uses:
    • Place a horizontal line of 10 foundations all at once.
    • Place a vertical set of 8 walls all at once.
    • Use both directions to make a 10x10 set of walls all at once.

Relocate Walls / Floors / Roofs / Foundations:

  • You can now relocate walls, floors, roofs, and other structural buildings as long they are not the sole supporter of another building.


  • You can now configure 4 Mutation loadouts and quickly swap between them using the new Mutation Loadouts radial.

  • To make room on the controller, the emote and chat radial have been combined into a single radial.
  • There are five new mutations to unlock.
  • Active Mutation status effects display in the UI next to your other status effect icons.

Shared World Backup Saves:

  • Shared Worlds now create local backup saves on the last host's machine anytime a save is made.
  • These saves are not stored in the cloud like the primary Shared World save and thus only the host that made them has access to them.
  • Backup saves can only be loaded if you were the last host for the Shared World when the backup save was made.
  • This is done to prevent multiple players from loading very old backup saves that stomp over the current playthrough progress.
