Masterpiece in survival, exploration and originality

Do not Starve ... One of my blind shopping Summer Sale. Was it a good buy? - Of course It is a "must" that you can not miss in your collection of prized games. Why I recommend this game? For lovers of the exploration will be a gem ,for those who like to suffer and continue with the game will love him, and the fact that it does not have guides makes him a perfect game to spend time discovering little things every moment. Challenge yourself and discover how long you can survive.


Extremley good and fun, can get repetetive.

I like this game. A lot. It's comprehensive and fun. A great survival story. Great graphical design. Two problems I have with it. It can get very repetitive. When you play a game of don't starve, you will die. A lot. It's a hard game. But when you die, you have to start a new game, so you always have to play through the first part again and again, which brings me into my next point. The world generation. It's a randomly generated world, but sometimes you have to go trekking for days just to find the most basic of materials. Annoying, and again, repetitive. Other than that, I have zero problems with this game. It's fun, lot's of things to craft, nothing seems overpowered and nothing seems under powered wit the costs. Good game.


Excellent indie game

This survival game is an excellent way to spend your time, and the aesthetic is incredible. It's slightly creepy, and the ambiance, music, characters etc. all come together and form a fantastic experience. Since your surroundings are randomly generated, it doesn't get particularly boring. You'll have to plan out your time and construct everything you need in order to stay alive and sane (this is incredibly important). A must have indie game for PC.

At first the game is a little confusing and you're probably not going to even make it half a night, but eventually you get the game and then it gets more fun. When you know what's going on you can do more. Rather than just cutting trees all day you get to know more, and see more. Also once you believe you've had your time with this game you can go check out the workshop to see what's there. Something for everyone there. From Zelda mods, to different challenges/modes. I would recommend if you enjoy RPG style games.


Great game for the price

This game to me was a instant classic, still being updated and with a dlc for a small price, it added a crap ton of stuff addition to all the free updates we got. It is well worth it if you love to survive, and have some fun, also coop is coming so grab it!
