The reason why I play Open World games is because every once in a while, I want to get lost in a different world.

This game is close to my heart because it was the game I played when I was doing my thesis. I've never beat the game, and I really don't want to. Whenever I play Don't Starve, I really just want to fool around and find many different ways to kill mobs without getting my hands dirty.

I love how you can tweak the world according to exactly how difficult or how easy you want the game to be. Whether you want a super easy game where you will definitely not starve, or shoot yourself in the leg and be stuck in winter forever, this game will deliver.

Don’t Starve is good, but not fantastic. It has all the necessary starting elements for a good survival game – hunting and gathering, base-building, and even a final objective – but it lacks the end-game intricacies and interests of similar titles. It is, in essence, half-finished. Fortunately, the developers have committed to updating the game every month on the dot, which means that purchasing it will guarantee plenty of future updates.

Don't Starve is a refreshingly upfront experience, right down to the title. A game that shoves players into a complex, harsh world with little explanation, it can be tough to parse at first. But little by little, Don't Starve reveals itself via deep mechanics and an ever-evolving world. It started strong and got better, all the way until Wilson's (and my own) eventual mastery of the fantastical wilderness.

Don’t Starve starts off slow and punishing and continues to get even harder as you play. Its merciless difficulty coupled with its monotonous gameplay can leave some players feeling frustrated and bored. Those who enjoy a good challenge, however, will relish in the satisfaction they’ll get when they manage to outlive their previous record or clear the game’s evil Adventure mode.
