Fantastic game, one of my top 10Rasklart | Dec. 3, 2013 | See all Rasklart's reviews »
First off, don't let the 2D factor repel you, this is an absolutely great game despite not looking amazing.
You're put in the middle of no where with completely no idea what to do and you have to craft and make food out of stuff you find on your way. once you learn the ropes this becomes a great game and it's definitely one of my favourites.
Also, you don't need a stupidly expensive PC to run it which is always a plus side.
Amazing! Love the artworkJJ136wain | Nov. 29, 2013 | See all JJ136wain's reviews »
This is a great survival indie game that is diffrent from others like terraria and minecraft. There is loads to do in this game, you can explore the world while collecting survival or upgrade your base or explore the underground. This game has steam workshop so you can always try new cool creations, the game also delivers awesome artwork and cool small little animations. When you die you get experince to go to new characters what have special powers and come equipped with items to make life in the wilderness easier and more exciting. If love survival and indie games this is the one for you.
The game that converted me to an Indie gamermwirmm | Nov. 26, 2013 | See all mwirmm's reviews »
This game is amazing if you ask me, these sort of simple yet creative visuals/mechanics are only found in the indie genre. After playing games i thought were similar such as Terraria, I really thought I should give this game a go and man was i satisfied! Exploration, Time management, nice visuals, crafting AND dieing actually deletes your save.
Firstly, the random map generator works really well, giving you a different experience every time you boot up.
For example sometimes you'll be placed in a part of the map abundunt with petals and berries. But start a new game and you might not be able to find a berry for days.
The game constantly keeps you on your feet forcing you to plan your time as best possible, and the element of luck adds to the experience.
The dark visuals perfectly suit the game and the quirky atmosphere, insanity effects are done well and craftings is also handled with care.
This game has my full recommendation
Can you survive and Don't Starve?MauroR | Nov. 26, 2013 | See all MauroR's reviews »
This is a big question, isn't it? The first time I've seen some gameplay videos from this game I've fallen almost instantly. Don't make put yourself down by the graphics because this has so much depth that you can't even imagine. You're alone and you must eat, craft stuff and decide what you have to do to survive as much as you can. You don't have mission objectives, pointing arrows, hints or anything, but it's up to yourself to craft or eat or do the right thing to survive the world. In short, It's completely up to you. Are you up to the challenge? Well, if you want to know it, just buy this game and jump in. And please, don't forget to eat...

If you like survival games and/or time management games, and you're keen of a delightfully gloomy twist, say hello to your new addiction! Simple controls assure no wasted time studying tutorials, you can jump right in! But make no mistake, this game is by no means easy. It is VERY challenging! But it is never an unwelcome task. Surviving in the semi-randomly generated worlds fraught with challenges aplenty guarantees endless replay-ability. You can try to tackle the "story" mode, or content yourself to conquer your world in sandbox mode. There are different characters to play each with different strengths and weakness, and perks to match your play-style. One of my all time favorite games, and I highly recommend it to anyone!
