My coworker asked me, “Are you playing the Don’t Starve game too?”
I work with mostly women so that usually means someone has gone on a new trendy diet. “No thank you I brought lunch,” I answered.
She’d actually been referring to a new game that Emmy, my gamer version of Yoda had discovered called “Don’t Starve”
It happened to be sweeping through the office for those of us who enjoy video games.
I’ll give you the real description in a moment but picture this, you awaken in the wilderness next to a creepy stranger who’s only words in enlightenment happen to be “Don’t Starve” he walks away abandoning you.
So what do you do?
You walk of course…
Overall gameplay is old school click, in the direction you want him to walk, interact with objects the and obviously don’t starve. You forage and hunt and build and find a way to make it in this strange new world alone without losing your mind.
Literally! There are shadows in the game that will kill you because you’ve lost your mind. (Be Cool. You can always pick flowers, burn them as fuel and heal your sanity).
And now for what the creators over at Klei…
“Don’t Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic.
You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.
Enter a strange and unexplored world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises. Gather resources to craft items and structures that match your survival style. Play your way as you unravel the mysteries of this strange land.”
