Frozen carpaccio
It's a piece of frozen raw meat. The only way to eat it is by cutting thin slices of it. And this way it's suprisingly[sic] good.

Food generation probabilities[]

Food Probability
Ration of food 4/5 80 %
Pasty 1/5 20 %
Mystery meat 0 0 %

Note: Although the other food types should be included, the table strictly follows the game's Java coding. So it should remain as is, until the code gets revised.

Food drop probabilities[]


  • Eat your Food Ration/Meat/Pasty after you've descended a depth, not right before, as descending/ascending stairs accelerates hunger/starvation.
  • Eat the Food Ration/Meat/Pasty you have only after you've found the Food Ration that the depth generates; that way, you'll always be 1 Food Ration ahead and you'll always have 1 Food Ration/Pasty left for an emergency.
  • Farming:
    Food is very hard to collect, as there's usually only 1-2 portions of food at each depth.
