Grotto: All Constellations Guide

Complete guide to all the available constellations, which will get you the achievement.


How To Make Constellations

In order to create constellations, you have to stand on the rock in front of your tent and look up into the hole in the cavern above you at the sky.

All the constellations are made from a combination of lines and shapes. It doesn’t necessarily matter which stars you connect, since the constellations are based on the number of stars included in each line or shape. You can use multiple variations on the same basic combination and get the same constellation. For example, if a constellation requires a three-star line and a four-star shape, then they can be any three stars connected in a line and any four stars connected into a closed shape.

See below for examples of different ways to make the “Mask” constellation, which is one of the default ones that are unlocked from the beginning.


As you discover new constellations, they get added to the cave wall.

Below are pictures from the cave wall that will show you which combinations to put together to get certain constellations.
