Another Crab’s Treasure is a fantastical soulslike set deep under the ocean where danger lurks around every corner. And like other games in the genre, it’s often brutally difficult to overcome the various challenges you’ll encounter. As such, you may find yourself wanting to backtrack for level grinding, to uncover new secrets, or to buy additional items in the game’s main hub. However, you may notice early in the game that you haven’t yet unlocked the ability to fast travel between the multitude of Moon Snail Shells (aka “bonfires”) you’ve found. Here’s how and when you’ll unlock fast travel.

How to unlock fast travel

In the opening hours of the game, you may notice that you can access your skill tree, which will show a skill called Shelleportation. But you may be discouraged to see that you aren’t able to apply any points to it yet. That’s because the game doesn’t open up this feature until you’ve advanced a few hours into the story.

To unlock fast travel, you’ll need to work your way through the first few main areas of the game until you reach a boss called the Polluted Platoon Pathfinder. After beating this baddie, you’ll soon find yourself teleporting to the Moon Snail’s Domain. Here, you’ll learn about the power of Umami, as well as unlock access to your skill tree.

Now that you can unlock Shelleportation, go ahead and do so. You will then be able to finally teleport between all of your previously visited Moon Snail Shells. Best of luck out there!

How to respec in Another Crab’s Treasure

Soulslike games are known for being immense challenging, and Another Crab's Treasure is no different despite its cutesy vibe. You'll be certain to have quite a lot of challenges to overcome as you fight your way through this underwater world, and you'll want to always be at your best as you do it. As such, you may find yourself wanting to reallocate your skill points at certain times, especially during the first half of the game when you have limited resources for getting new skills. Below, we'll tell you how to respec in Another Crab's Treasure.
How to respec
You won't be able to assign skills or respec them until you've advanced the game to the point where you reach the Moon Snail's Domain. You'll see an option to "Refund Skills" when speaking to the Moon Snail. However, this will cost you a Shark Egg, which is an exceedingly rare item that you can't get until you've progressed a little bit further into the game.

The easiest way to get a Shark Egg is to head over to the Prawn Shop in the lower section of New Carcinia, which is the game's main hub that you'll reach after defeating a few main bosses and moving the story forward a bit. Speak to the owner there to purchase up to two Shark Eggs for 2,000 microplastics each. Beyond the Prawn Shop, these elusive items can be found in a few clam shells throughout the game, and they'll more rarely drop from elite enemies — though the drop rate appears to be very, very low.

Is Stardew Valley cross-platform?
Stardew Valley Multiplayer Fishing

Stardew Valley is a game made by just one person, but it has seen more success than most games made by dozens, or even hundreds, of people. It's even one of Digital Trends' top 50 video games of all time. Since its release in 2016, the game has been updated regularly with new features and content to keep its avid fans coming back. This includes an online multiplayer component that allows you and up to three friends to hang out on each other's farms. And with the recent trend of games allowing players on different platforms to join together, you may wonder if Stardew Valley offers cross-platform functionality. Here's everything we know about cross-platform support in Stardew Valley.
Is Stardew Valley cross-platform?
Stardew Valley does not offer cross-platform support, meaning you can't play online multiplayer between any of the systems the game is on. So if you want to team up with some friends, make sure you all are playing on the same platform, such as the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, or PC. Also be aware that whoever starts a multiplayer game is saving that shared world locally, meaning no one else can reenter that world without the host present.

The sad fact of the matter is there doesn't seem to be any indication that crossplay will come to Stardew Valley. The game's official Reddit still lists it as not being supported, and there was only one mention of it by the developer on Twitter back in 2018, when he responded to a question asking if crossplay would come to the game. He replied, "Unfortunately, there will not be crossplay. Apparently, the technical barriers are very high. It's still something I really want to add and I promise to look into it more closely, but first priority is getting the update out there." This was many years ago, and there has been no further information about cross-platform play since, so it seems very unlikely that we will see support for this functionality come to Stardew Valley.
