Last Updated: by Richard

Tasked with managing a deep-sea science facility working to perfect cloning read on for our best Surviving the Abyss cheats and tips to help you in this survival colony builder.

While the aim of the game is to perfect cloning, your initial priority is to set yourself up well in order to get started in cloning, so think about resources and looking after your team well.

The research lab is really important, and is a main consideration in your gameplay, keep upgrading it to expand the facility to make the lives of your crew and your overall objective easier.

Amongst other things. you'll need to think about housing, air quality, resources and power. There is certainly a lot more to the game that the cloning task, because if you don't create a strong foundation, then it's unlikely you'll survive or thrive in Surviving The Abyss.

Discover close by places to mine and use your mining ships to get the resources. This should be enough to get you ample resources in the beginning of the game.
