Don’t Starve is an adventure survival game set in a procedurally generated open world environment and made in a specific cartoon manner. Players assume the role of the scientist Wilson lost in the dark world. The main objectives for Wilson are to stay healthy, fed and mentally stable, and to avoid attacks of supernatural enemies in order to survive as long as possible. Players control the action with the keyboard (general activities) and mouse (combat). The game features day/night time cycles, which change survival pace dramatically. Days are usually spent exploring the map, gathering resources, and crafting, while nights require maximum concentration and caution to stay aware of dangerous enemies. Enemies range from tiny frogs to carnivore birds and tentacles. To lead a successful survival players must control tree scales in the screen top, which track hunger, health and sanity respectively. Death occurs in various ways from including starving, insanity, and deadly wounds inflicted by monsters.

Don't Starve reviews and comments

This Game has evolved damn far since the initial Beta here on Steam. Don't Starve describes the Game quite well. You should acquire a steady and effective Food Source. Then go to the crafting of Objects, such as Shovels, Axes, Weapons, Armor, Chest, houses and much more! The Graphic Style is also really nice and the Characters you can unlock and play are varied in their Abilities. Who's on Survival!

This Game perfects the Wilderness Survival genre. Exposed in the Wilderness, you have to use the Resources in your Environment to avoid succumbing to one of the many Dangers such as Hunger, Monsters or Cold. In Addition, there is a suitable Preparation for the four Seasons, all of which call for different strategic Approaches. A real Strength is that you can craft Better and better objects over time, so that you always have a Goal in mind in The Lategame. It's even more Fun to play with other People, which is why the Don't Starve Together version is highly recommended.

Super ingenious Food for the Price. Where else do you get 200h Of Fun for 10 Teuro back then. The Characters are all different and it's Fun to play the SPiel several times. Best I found the men's Challenges to The free Play of Maxwell. There really goes to the incoming and you can show how good you are really in the Struggle for Survival. But many of my Friends found it too heavy and I also died several times before I made it ... In the "normal" game, however, you can adjust the Resources as you like and thus adjust the Difficulty quite idiosyncepally ... Personally, I would have liked even more of these Men's challenges for the Prize but fully OK. Now Wait for the Network Mode then I'm back at it. :)

On a Day like no other, you wake up somewhere on a Continent, a grim Figure Tells us that we are on our own and that's where the Adventure begins. 100% Survival feeling Definitely comes on, you have to collect Food like Berries or Meat collects Wood and Straw for Fire and Other important Things. From stones, Metals and Wood we make weapons and Armor and Sound an entire Kontinen above and also underground. Caves among us offer Resorts for Light and Alchemy, also Treasures are hidden there that Of course we do not want to miss. One tries to survive Day after Day, through the 4 Seasons to the darkness. My Conclusion: Don't Starve Is a really well received Indie survival game with lots of varied Content, lots of unlockable Characters and Bonuses and a unique Gaming Experience where it's all about Naked survival. "A Must for any Survival fan"
