Quirky and cute
on June 27, 2014
Don't Starve has a unique style that I appreciate. Everything about it is just a little off from normal, a little creepy around the edges. However, the game play was not engaging enough to keep me playing it after a few hours. There's no real guidance from the game; it took me forever to realize what the stat indicators meant and the map was too vague to be of much help. That being said, when I did manage to accomplish something (like building the science machine) I was thrilled.
If DVG Kiel Entertainment were to put out a guide, even a very basic one, I would be willing to give this game another go.
