Here is more about the Crafting System and the “Curse of the Abyss” straight from the press release:

Introduction to Part of the Game System: Crafting Items and “The Curse of the Abyss”
Exploring the Abyss requires a variety of tools, sufficient food, and more. Items can be crafted from a variety of materials obtained through exploration, and range from tools such as climbing axes and fishing rods to food, medicine, and clothing.
In the game, due to weight restrictions for gear, it is also important to procure items locally through crafting, rather than bringing them in from town.
“The Curse of the Abyss” a characteristic element of the original story, is also recreated in the game. “The Curse of the Abyss” is a phenomenon in which the deeper one goes, their body experiences more severe strains when returning to the surface, causing various physical and mental disorders

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness comes out this fall for PlayStation 4, Steam and Nintendo Switch. The standard edition of the game will set you back $59.99 or you can get a fancy Limited Edition for $89.99
