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.

Love it. Also a few suggestions

This game is great for passing time and I just dig survival games I could spend the whole day writing abt what I like about it but for times sake and also me wanting to see the game improve I have a few suggestions: 1. A lot have noticed the UI has a few bugs like I was trying to eat roasted berries and when I touched the icon they just disappeared 2. Rotating the screen for one you cant rotate or zoom in or out while you’re moving you have to take youre hand off the joystick to adjust your pov, also many times the game crashes whenever I rotate the screen I have an iPhone 13 so I know its not a processing issue on my end. That’s all I’ve got again I love this game please dont give up on it❤️

Pretty Decent but Glitchy

It’s not as good as Don’t Starve Together (especially Wendy and Abigail) but it’s still pretty good. Except when you almost die to an invisible ewecus. And when pigs walk off the earth and onto the water and never come back. Yes, I said onto the water. Like Jesus. There also seems to be a rare glitch where making food turns straight into rot. Oh, and placing walls/fences is absolutely terrible. Also, my game crashed when I made frogs attack a lure plant. Probably a bad idea on my part but it was funny. There’s also a weird glitch when you die and respawn at the statue, your character just starts taking off in one direction. I also had a fire hound spawn in my first winter. Kinda strange. Also, when your weapon breaks, it doesn’t replace the weapon even if you have the same kind in your inventory but it’ll do so good shovels/pickaxes/etc. Also, Abigail gets stuck offscreen all the time and there’s no way to pull her aggro off of anything. I let her die if she’s accidentally summoned and just throw the flowers at the spawn statue; that’s how useless she is to me here. Also, my world had no “totally normal trees” and I had to spawn a tree guard for living logs. It utterly destroyed me. But great game :D love DST so this is good way to play when I’m not home.
