Hideout 1 is a major location in Darkwood.

Located in the Meadow, this building is the player's first safe house. Prior to Alpha 6.0, it featured a well upfront to quench The Thirst come nightfall, as all Hideouts did.

The hideout has four separate rooms in total, with several pieces of furniture and accessories in them. They can be used innovatively to block doors and open pathways, and to store items for later use. A small shack housing the hideout's Generator is also present, but unsecure, since one of its walls is broken down.

A locked stash can be found at the back of the house, containing, among other things, two Shotgun Shells, a 9V Battery, a can of Gasoline, and an Exploding Barrel. On the other side of the front door, there is a pile of timber containing some Planks.

The large wardrobe contains one Rag, 11 Nails and the Photo of a Road, while the smaller one contains the Mushroom Book, a Rope, two empty Bottles and 2 bottles of Alcohol.

The small shack which serves as the generator room contains a Corpse, which has a Torch in mid condition and some Matchsticks.

Strategy Edit

The smaller room next to the entrance is easy to defend due to its small size.

The large wardrobe can serve both as a storage locker for items as well as an invaluable barricade to block off open doorways.

Trivia Edit


Worms infesting the Hideout, as seen in a screenshot from before Alpha 6.0. Note the crate, which has since been replaced by a small wardrobe.

  • Prior to Alpha 6.0, Worms would appear in this hideout. They are now introduced to the player further along the way.
  • The Hideout used to feature a "very trippy" glitch on its bed, which was fixed in Alpha 1.1. The devs stated that it could be re-added as an intentional feature in the future.
  • The password of the container behind the house was given to the game's early acess backers.
