If you’ve reach the bottom of Below, you still haven’t won. The unlock the ending in Below, you’ll need to collect 20 Fragments of Light and complete your lantern collectible hunt. These fragments appear everywhere, and some of them are extremely tricky to find — especially one find fragment on the bottom floor. Like everything in Below, the fragments appear in random places, but this guide should (hopefully) point you in the right direction.
Below is a rogue-like top-down adventure game that’s all about surviving in the deep darkness of a strange subterranean cavern. You’ll explore randomly-generated floors, fighting monsters and searching for sustenance. You’ll have to eat and drink to stay alive, and if your lantern runs out of juice, you’re done for — especially in the lower floors. Making it far can be maddening, so check out some of the guide we’ve published so far in the link bank below if you need a little extra help.
