Editors' Notes

Just from reading the title, you know your objective. But as you explore amazing paper-cutout landscapes, you’ll uncover a weird world dense with secrets and danger. Slick controls make traveling and harvesting food simple, but balancing your hunger and health—and sanity—requires crafting weapons, traps, machines and more. With tons of mysteries to uncover and challenges to complete, Don’t Starve will keep you enthralled.

Brand new Bug!

This is a brilliant game which I’ve been playing in different formats for years. Lately though I’ve starting getting a frustrating problem playing on my iPad.
The second slot for wearables suddenly has the directional keys overlaying it. As a result, if I need to wear my miner’s hat I can’t select to take it off and instead just rotate the screen! Any suggestions or solutions would be welcomed.

Absolutely insane

I adore this game, I’ve watched so many people play it and I was so happy when I found and bought this. I’ve had it for a few years and have wondered if we could get a multiplayer? Like do t starve together? I love klei as a company but I do want to play multiplayer without having to play it on xbox. Don’t get me wrong xbox is great but I find my phone more convenient when your playing with someone across the room! I’ve always dreamed of waking up to don’t starve together. It doesn’t have to be big! Just don’t starve together on mobile! Even if it’s just LAN that’s fine! I would just like to see it happen. Klei if you read this it’d mean the world for you to respond with thoughts! Thank you so much for this beautiful game and I hope you respond and see this! Seriously love you guys!
