Welcome to the Into Indie Games walkthrough for The Wild at Heart. This story-oriented walkthrough will guide you through completing the game’s story. It is not achievement guide!
The Wild at Heart is a game of exploration and adventure, so be sure to explore and use your spritelings as much as you can, wherever you can. If you’re really stuck, our walkthrough will help you out.

Crystalfall Coast (Oyster Piles #1 – #4)
Just north of where you found the barblings, you’ll find a big crystal with oysters inside it. Send your barblings to break it down. This is Oyster Pile #1.
Then, send any spritelings to gather the oysters and take them to Cath.
In the meantime, you can collect Barbling Pips by sending barblings to bust the pip squashes in the area and build a balanced party. Remember to collect your spritelings from Cath’s place!
For Oyster Pile #2, head west from the camp and then immediately south to find some crystals blocking your way. Clear these with your barblings.
Go near the sea and destroy the crystal there the same way. Send 10 spritelings onto the bubble-hole and have them rise up and grab the oysters in Oyster Pile #2.
For Oystery Pile #3, head towards the pond near where you found the Oyster Pile #1. Instead of going west, go east and break down the crystals blocking the way. Then, toss your barblings at the barrel until enough barblings stick to it. This will drain the pond beyond and you will be able to retrieve Oyster Pile #3.
Remember to collect your barblings on the way back!
For Oyster Pile #4, return to camp and head east. Toss your barblings on the barrel to open the way and then collect the barblings before moving east.
You can fight some Bloopcaps to the north and find treasure, but to find the oyster pile, head south and clear the toxic mushrooms with your twiglings.
A little more east, you’ll find a very dangerous Spoilback. Send twiglings to fight this one, as his toxic spill will be deadly for other spritelings.
Further east, you will encounter a devastating enemy called the Groggthud. You will need a full party of 40 or more to take him down. Bring as many emberlings as you can so you have the best fighting capability. This fight is mandatory, but it will likely cost many of your spritelings’ lives.
After you’re done with the fight in your favour, head north up the past to the east and collect the oyster pile with 10 spritelings.
While your spritelings carry the load back, you should replenish your strength with pips.
