Developer Spry Fox’s roguelike puzzler Road Not Taken is all about figuring things out as you go. It’s like life, really — you start out knowing nothing and learn from experience, failure, and experimentation. This is especially true of its recipes, in which you combine two or more objects to create something new.
Like the rest of it, you’re supposed to learn all of this from trying it out, because life does not come with a strategy guide.
Luckily, however, video games can, so here’s a handy catalog of every recipe in Road Not Taken. Click on an individual item below (or in the guide itself) to go to its page and see what it does, how to make it, and how you can use it to get other cool stuff. You can reference by image or search for the name of the thing you’re looking for.
