    Don’t Starve Together takes the terrific game that it’s predecessor is known to be and builds up a whole new structure around the original that really opens up a lot of different ways of, well, not starving.

    'Don't Starve Together' is hands-down the best way to play 'Don’t Starve'.

    The game is as well-designed and polished as the original Don’t Starve, but of course your reception of Together depends on who you play it with. [07/2016, p.65]

    Don't Starve Together does little to fix the original's glaring problems, but still, conquering the wilderness together with friends is a lot of fun.

    Don’t starve together. What was arguably one of the most difficult PC games on steam just became social. Don’t starve together adds aDon’t starve together. What was arguably one of the most difficult PC games on steam just became social. Don’t starve together adds a multiplayer to the Tim Burton style survival, subsequently adding new game modes, challenges, and crucially, more strategy. More hands, but more mouths to feed is a huge motto for DST. This one of a kind game will have you quickly leaving your friends in the hope to scavenge a handful of berries, fuel, and rocks to survive just that one more night. The game starts in either spring or autumn, leading you to prepare for summer or winter respectively. As the next season draws closer, you feel a sense of urgency and panic to ensure your character is ready for the next obstacle has to throw at you; whether it be you house burning down in the scorching summer sun, or frozen by the freezing frostbite of winter. There is no game quite like DST. A strangely immersive and intense game, that is in a Tim Burton art style – truly unique.

    The game is separate from “Don’t Starve”. Don’t starve was a solo game, and it felt empty without other players. Klei then released Don’t starve together, a separate game entirely that enables a multiplayer functionality. It would have been nice to have this function in the base game, however Klei compensated for this by giving DST free to existing owners of the base game. DLC from the base game is being added; the DLC ‘Shipwrecked’ is an exception. A new reign and reign of giants have been added.

    The game is intentionally very difficult. You have to cater to sanity, hunger, and health, by collecting and crafting items from around the map. The map changes with each new world made, allowing for the player to explore new areas, or make different strategies based on their environment. Certain characters feature exclusive levels, such as the robot “WX-78”, who has to be mindful of the rain, and “Woodie”, who needs to eat wood to stop him turning into the “Werebeaver”.

    Sound is a huge factor to any game’s overall experience. DST’s is nothing to boast about, but it is unique nonetheless. There are an array of soundtracks associated with various parts of the game, however the characters’ sounds are repetitive at best. They mostly communicate to the player via sounds based on the character, (WX-78 makes robotic noises, for example), alongside a short subtitle as to what they are saying. It often helps give a clue to unknown objects around the map, and can sometimes be helpful to the player. There isn’t much more to expect, the game is designed to have a sort of retro feel, however when you’re spending a lot of time trying to survive for as long as possible, the same sound from a character can begin to get repetitive and annoying.

    The game controls are a definite upside to this game. It doesn’t require a mouse to play, so despite the nature of the game, the controls are relaxing; this game can be played with only one hand, as the spacebar can be used to replace the mouse entirely.

    Overall, DST, in spite of its incredible difficulty, serves to be one of the best survival games I have played. The philosophy of more hands but mouths to feed makes this edition of the game outdo its predecessor by a long way. In terms of playability, I managed to get 60 hours of this game before reviewing it, and I’m still not bored – a worthwhile purchase.

    Welp, the graphics may be fine, but the grind is really boring. Even if you gather a lot of stuff you will lose it all to a random encounterWelp, the graphics may be fine, but the grind is really boring. Even if you gather a lot of stuff you will lose it all to a random encounter because the attacking is so clunky and bad. Before I get the chance to perform a melee attack or even target an enemy( a bee in particular), a random mob does it faster. Shooting with a slingshot is also terribly bad as Walton sometimes won't shoot and it takes ages for him to "reload". You really will cons00me anything your indie devs will release? Expand
