How Crafting Works in Core Keeper

Crafting in Core Keeper works much like many other similar games: you take some base materials, go into a menu, and make something new with those materials.

There are several kinds of crafting in the game:

  • Hand Crafting - Items crafted directly from your inventory without a workbench.
  • Workbench Crafting - Items crafted at a special station such as a Basic Workbench.
  • Core & Special Crafting - Items crafted at vendors or fixed locations, such as the statues in the Core.
  • Cooking - Cooked foods made by combining two edible items into a dish. We cover this kind of crafting separately in our dedicated Cooking Guide.
