    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.

    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 is the "sequel" to Don't Starve, which is already an amazing game. Don't Starve Together has unique Tim Burton styleDon't Starve Together is the "sequel" to Don't Starve, which is already an amazing game. Don't Starve Together has unique Tim Burton style graphics and completely unique from any other game. This has to be the best survival game out there for a lot of reasons, but the main reasons are its ability to keep you going. You can't just stand around; you have to keep moving, collecting resources and food, and preparing for Winter if it's Autumn. To continue on, it becomes addicting and challenging real fast. Some people say this game is awful and one of the reasons is that there is no tutorial. Well, guess what bucko? Minecraft doesn't have a tutorial either. Tutorials aren't always necessary. Last, of all, the game has a combat system of prediction and strategy. Each monster and animal have their own way of defeating them which makes combat different for each thing you fight. You noticed the "Together" in Don't Starve Together right? Well, this game is multiplayer, meaning you can play singleplayer or private multiplayer with friends, or go on a public server alone or with friends. You need a lot of practice with the game and it's not easy for newbies, but once you learn via online or friends who are already great at the game, you'll find that Don't Starve Together is a great mix of survival and fun.

    Don’t Starve Together is a multiplayer strategy sandbox game where every action a player makes can affect the player’s future. Because of thisDon’t Starve Together is a multiplayer strategy sandbox game where every action a player makes can affect the player’s future. Because of this unforgiving nature, players will come to learn from past mistakes and come up with a way that best fits their character and play style. Furthermore, the game has a lot to offer to its players and there are many hidden gems out there that have yet to be discovered. It’s amazing how Klei Entertainment can come up with something so unique and addictive despite it being a game without a particular goal.

    The creation of Don’t Starve Together is derived from Don’t Starve, single player version of Don’t Starve Together, where many of its current elements are existent due to the original game. The aesthetics and genre of the game is much alike in terms of visual representation, sounds, and theme. Both games have beautiful musics, artwork, and game mechanics that helps enhance player’s experience. The Tim Burton style art is honestly a bonus to DST’s uniqueness from other games. In addition, DTS is more of a process-oriented game similar to that of Minecraft where the open world aspect of the game allows its players to explore and manipulate an ever-changing world to their whims. No one map is alike, thus making players explore until they can no longer go anywhere further.

    As players progress into the game, they might perceived the storyline as not being a critical function component of the game. However, as the player progresses through the game, the story becomes more apparent with the action intensity of the game, where hints are thrown at players when trouble arises. Much as how the action is presented in Don’t Starve Together, the storyline of the game is presented in inconspicuous bits scattered through the use of character lines and integrated game mechanics. The story of Don’t Starve Together is not shown; rather, the story is meticulously hidden so that the player becomes more immersed in the action of the game itself. Progressing through the game to piece together the story, makes Don’t Starve Together interesting and rewarding to play.

    Don’t Starve Together is also a game that allows players to not only learn but to also have an enjoyable time to overcome obstacles. The opportunities for Don’t Starve Together being a ‘serious game’ could be considered due to its semi-educational gameplay. Unlike edutainment games similar to that of ‘Math Blasters’ where children learn their timetables in game, Don’t Starve Together allow players to learn indirectly like ‘SimCity’. Even though Don’t Starve Together does not have a particular objective for players to strive for, players do come to learn how to build their own base, living space, along with scavenging for resources. Although Don’t Starve Together is not a game that would be considered appropriate for schools to use as a teaching mechanism, it is still a game that keeps a person’s mind grinding.

    Game culture has been growing as the years go by and I would say, DST is one of those games where DST community is welcomed to create mods and implement it into the game. Not many games allow mods to exist and the fact that DST supports this really means a lot. Furthermore, there are pop culture references being made here and there during gameplay!

    Overall, Don’t Starve Together is a wonderful multiplayer game that allows players to socialize, build, and strategize throughout the gameplay. It also gave players an amazing game experience due to the many amazing elements they put into the makage of Don’t Starve Together. Despite it being a bit challenging, it is still a game where players can eventually learn a way to overcome those obstacles. This game is honestly very addictive and I really don’t regret purchasing this.

The whole concept was never appealing to me. but for a friend recommendation boughI was never interested in the single player original game.

Fantastic art. I will be playing a lot more. but to be honest, it still don't change my mind about the single player game. im not really interested in playing this alone. only multiplayer. Expand
