Players may select the pod their heroes crash in from several possible variants, which are unlocked by completing specific gameplay tasks. It is only necessary to complete one of the specified tasks to unlock a variant.

Unless specified otherwise, all pods start with 2 heroes.

Escape Pod Edit

Escape Pod
Escape Pod Ingame
  • No particular gameplay bonuses or penalties.

Unlock conditions:

  • Available from the start.

Infirmary Pod Edit

Infirmary Pod
Infirmary Pod Ingame
  • Heroes have vastly increased maximum health (2x HP).
  • Cost of healing reduced (per HP, meaning food cost is identical to base value but heals twice as many HP).
  • No auto-heal at end of turn.
  • Many in-game items are replaced with drugs that provide buffs with some side effects.

Unlock conditions:

  • Win a game with the Escape Pod.
  • Spend 1000 Food healing heroes in one game.

In-game description:

  • Note from sales brochure: "dedicated to your pharmaceutical well-being."

Additional notes:

  • Starts the game with several drug device items in the inventory.
  • All passive skills with health regen provide a defense bonus instead, but actives like Paramedic work as normal.
  • Item replacement removes all items with health regen.

Tips:

Library Pod Edit

Library Pod
Library Pod Ingame
  • Heroes are smarter (2x wit) but less powerful (0.5x attack power) and weapons will never drop.
  • Resources, Artifacts, and Slots for modules are more common.
  • No Food module at the start, but larger reserve of resources, items, and modules.

Unlock Conditions:

This is a Dungeon of the Endless Crystal Pack or Founder Pack Exclusive. Players must own the respective pack as well as meeting the condition:

  • Research all the modules (lvl 1) in a winning game

In-game description:

  • Note from sales brochure: "To avoid inciting prisoners, this pod only contains data on meditation, graphic design, and party planning."

Additional notes:

  • 6 extra Dust and +2 Food base production compared to other pods.
  • Begin with +10 Food, +10 Industry, and +10 Science compared to other pods.
  • The starting Prisoner Prod is replaced with Tesla and KIP Cannon modules, though Prisoner Prods can still be researched.
  • Starts the game with one Scope and one Tools Belt in the inventory.
  • Wit boosting items also give 2x the wit, as well as skills like Knowledge Is Good.

Tips:

  • This is generally seen as the easiest Pod. Having more resources makes it easier to get even more resources, and massed modules are usually more powerful than heroes anyway meaning the penalties are not very severe.

Drill Pod Edit

  • Doors automatically opening via moving the crystal still count towards "open every door" to unlock the pod as long as they are all open before the player leaves the floor.

Tips:

Tips:

  • Every powered room gives you an extra +0.5 Food. Early on don't be shy, get those resources!
