New Update! Strange New Powers.

Posted July 02, 2013 by Corey

Our latest update is live and brings some rather fantastic changes to Don't Starve. Along with snappy new character special powers, we've also introduced a new character that many have been asking for... Woodie, the lumberjack! 

Read onward for details on these new changes. If you're looking for a place to discuss these new improvements, we have just such a thing! Head over to our post in the Don't Starve forum.

New Update: It's Not A Rock!

Posted June 12, 2013 by Corey

We're excited to announce that more adventure and wonder awaits in the depths of Don't Starve's caves. Due to some server hounds ravaging things over at Google's App Engine servers, we're a bit later than normal sending this update. But fear not! They seem to have tamed any unruly beasts in their system and the newest update is now available on Steam, Chrome and our stand alone client for all to enjoy.


The First Caves Update Have Arrived!

Posted May 22, 2013 by Corey

Ever wonder what's going on below Wilson's feet? Do rabbit holes really lead to the kingdom of the Bunnymen? Now you can explore the depths of Don't Starve's underworld with our latest caves update!

Update Notes:

This is the first in a series of updates to create a new explorable underground adventure. While there are plenty of fun things to find and experiment with down there right now, please keep in mind that this is just an early version of our overall vision for the caves.


Update Trailer: Underground

Posted May 17, 2013 by Corey

Just because the beta is over doesn't mean we're done. We've put together a very special trailer for our introduction of caves. Enjoy

NOTE: The Caves are still extremely early, and we are showing pre-Alpha content. As we continue to update the game, the Caves will fill out into a lively world for all to enjoy.



We've recently launched the Reign of Giants Expansion on Steam Early-Access!

The new content in Reign of Giants touches all corners of the game and is focused on adding content throughout the entire upper world of Don’t Starve. This includes new characters, seasons, creatures, craftables and biomes, all of which will work together with the existing content of Don’t Starve to provide new challenges and play-styles. 

What's in the Reign of Giants Early-Access Beta? 

At this point of the beta, we've included two brand new characters, new seasons, biomes, creatures, craftables and items.

New Characters - Play as Webber, a unique creature who can befriend Spiders and even grow a dapper silk beard. Or play as Wigfrid, a powerful, carnivorous, Valkyrie who gains power from her fallen foes!

Giants - Literally the biggest additions to the game are the Giants that you'll face at certain points of each season. Will you be able to adapt and overcome the dangerous new challenges each of them bring?

New Seasons - Did you think Winter was dangerous in the core game? Wait until you try surviving the heavy rainfall in Spring and the extreme heat during Summer. Each new season presents unique new challenges and rewards for those willing to brave the elements.

New Items and Craftables - To survive the new seasons, you'll have to use the new items and craftables including the Ice Hat, Ice Fling-O-Matic, Endothermic Fire, Rain Coat, Rain Hat, and much more!

New Creatures - Interact with new creatures like the burrowing Moleworms, the supercharged Volt Goats. There's also new creatures you can befriend like the gift-giving Catcoon and the docile Glommer.

New Save Slot - We've also added a new save slot into the game. Now, you'll be able to play through and survive five different worlds!
