Hints for "A Dark Room"

Hi all,
If played nearly no choice game before. So (if A Dark Room is a choice game at all) I need some hint(s).

There stumbles a stranger into my room, but the only things I can do is stoke the fire or enter the forest. When I click on the speaking bubble in the bottom left corner, I get to a menu of games of that developer, not something game-related.

What did I overlook?

The start is very slow…


So I can’t interact with the stranger, instead his strength is added to mine automatically?

Basically, yeah. More people means more hands to do the work. More wood to carry in one turn, more traps to set. After a while, with more tasks to accomplish, this results in a kind of labour division.
