Palworld is blasting onto the monster-collecting scene, blending those mechanics with the survival-crafting genre to bring you a game in which you can start your own capitalist empire with Pals as your gun-wielding, hard-working employees.

It’s definitely a bit of a fever dream of a game, but it is real, and those Pals of yours can die if you aren’t careful. To keep them in top condition, you’ll want to regularly feed them, and make sure that you’re resting them. Here’s how to rest Pals in Palworld.

Sometimes in Palworld, your Pals will need to rest. Pals that have been assigned to work on your base will, fortunately, take themselves off to bed or for a small rest when needed. Just make sure that you have enough Straw Pal Beds in your base for the amount of Pals that you have working, or else they will not have anywhere to sleep.

You can also build structures such as the Hot Springs, which act as a place for Pals to rest and restore their Sanity so that they can continue working for you.

Pals in your party, however, will occasionally need you to manually rest them if they have become incapacitated or downed while out in the overworld or during a boss fight. To do this, you’ll need to return to your base and interact with the Palbox.

Any incapacitated or downed Pals will glow red. To rest them, you’ll need to return them to the Palbox temporarily. In our experience, playing on Casual, this was ten minutes.

After the time is up, you can go ahead and retrieve your rested Pals and put them back into your party, or back to work!

If your Pal is just low on health or suffereing from a status effect such as Depressed, Weakened, Fracture, or Ulcer, you'll need medicines for them. These can first be crafted at a Medieval Medicine Bench, which you'll unlock in the Technology Tree after reaching Level 12.
