Version 0.4.3 introduces Random Bush Generation.

In this update, I’ve expanded the hunger mechanic by adding three new types of bushes scattered across the map. These bushes are dynamically generated, ensuring a unique placement each time you enter the game. Additionally, I’ve revamped the text to prompt players to ‘Obtain Nourishment’ and ‘Obtain Hydration’.

bushes will fall after you have gained Nourishment from them and a new one will spawn on the map somewhere
