Accessible from any almost any geyser on Timber Hearth this inter-connecting network of underwater caves represents where the Hearthians began as a species. It also explains how the Hearthians escaped from the solar system being flooded with Ghost Matter. The Nomai text that the player can find shows how filled with curiosity the Nomai were when they discovered them. Even demonstrating how much the Nomai cared by making sure that their mining did not disrupt their way of life.

One of the caves below the Village shows an area littered with trash, air canisters, fish, and flasks labeled with Outer Wild Ventures. It is unclear how the members of this social gathering indulged in the flasks considering they most likely wore space suits during the gathering. This is further backed up, as the geyser will kill you if it shoots you up without a way to slow your fall.

Outside of this, the caves have little to offer in information. However, the player can use it as a quick form of transportation to traverse Timber Hearth.

Tektite surveying the seed.

Initially, the player finds a note from Tektite stating that they saw smoke coming up from Youngbark Crater and is going to investigate. Also, they made it clear to not break the scout launcher, which is being used to keep a look out for fires[Source Needed 1].

Upon arriving at Youngbark Crater the player is greeted with a Dark Bramble Seed, which unbeknownst to the Hearthians is beginning to infect the planet.

Speaking with Tektite yields that the seed is clearly not from this planet and it is most likely from the Dark Bramble. More importantly they believe it needs to be destroyed as soon as possible. Tektite states that they want to drag the scout launcher over to the site and shoot a scout into it, before sicking [insert names] on it. Thankfully. for the player, this seed leads directly to Feldspar's camp.

Outside of this information this area seems to only serve the purpose of:

  • Introducing the player to how space works in the Dark Bramble
  • Give the players a reason to go the Dark Bramble
  • A easy way to find Feldspar
