Resources Guide: Oxygen – First Breath

Oxygen – First Breath is a building game where you will be looking out for your base and the system of Oxygen in the game. To do this, you will need resources. Resources in this game are basically everything. Whatever you will need to do and build into it, will require resources.

There are certain buildings that you will need to be able to obtain resources in the game. There are a total of 7 resource buildings that your base should always have. They are crucial and needed if you want to progress through the game.


This is as simple as it sounds. If you want to have resources in Oxygen – First Breah you will need to have a place to store them. The Storage building is that place. You will be able to store:

  • Water
  • Food
  • Material

You will need to build a couple of these buildings in order to have a much bigger capacity for storing items as you progress through the later stages of the game. We recommend building Large Storage once you unlock it.

Water Purifier

To be able to have Inhabitants that are healthy and alive in your base, you will need to provide them with fresh and clean water. The Water Purifier is the building that will give you the Water resource. It is crucial to have one and possibly more when you have more Inhabitants.

Note that this only works for lakes or rivers.

Water Desalinator

If you do not have a lake or a river in your vicinity and area but you do have a very big sea next to you, well going for the Water Desalinator is the answer for you. This works exactly the same as the Water Purifier just for the sea.

It will require a whole lot more construction points that you will need and also you’ll need to spend 320 tech points to research it. We recommend building it because it will give you a stable income from water.

Water Well

The Water Well is the next option to go for if you cannot go for the other options. This will give you fresh and clean water from the underground. It will require 450 tech points to unlock and a lot of construction points. It is not all that useful but you can build it if needed.

Coal Mine

You will need Coal if you want to fire up your building for them to be working with energy a lot. We recommend building a lot of Coal Mines as soon as you see them. Building them early on will give you a whole lot more Coal in the long run.

Metal Processing

The Metal Processing building is a resource building that will be giving you metal that can be found in deep deposits. You will want to build a lot of them since they are easy to make, don’t require a lot of construction cost and they give you a lot in return.


You will need a lot of Stones if you want to progress through the game to build all the buildings available. To get the stone resource you will need to build the Quarry. This is a very needed and highly recommended building to go for.

Once you have it unlocked you will want to build it as soon as possible. Highly recommended.

That’s everything that you need to know about the Resources in Oxygen – First Breath. We hope that this guide has helped you out and explained how the resources work. Have fun!
