Winter's Feast and Wolfgang's Character Refresh Are Now Live!

Recommended Posts

  • Developer

Today we have our next character refresh! We also have some new skins and a new short, new streaming drops, and the return of Winter’s Feast!

Don't Starve Together: The Incredible Strongman
Wolfgang always prided himself on his strength, but after an embarrassing mishap reveals his might to be a touch exaggerated, he finds himself eager to accept any opportunity to get stronger… no matter how dubious the source.

Here are the details:

  • Instead of being directly connected to his hunger, Wolfgang’s forms are now controlled by a new Might Meter.
    • Filling the Might Meter requires Wolfgang to work out using one of his new craftable items
    • The meter goes down over time and the draining rate is determined by Wolfgang’s Hunger, the hungrier he is, the faster it goes down
  • Wolfgang’s linear values are now constants
  • Wolfgang freezes and overheats faster when in Wimpy form, but slower while Mighty
  • When Mighty Wolfgang can carry heavy items faster. He does not lose Might while carrying heavy objects
  • Mighty Wolfgang works faster when chopping wood, mining or hammering things
  • Wolfgang is a more efficient rower when Mighty
  • His speed no longer changes with his forms
  • Wolfgang’s hunger and health are now at a maximum of 200 regardless of his form
  • Wolfgang sanity rate changes depending on the number of friends and enemies in his company
  • Deals more damage when Mighty and less when Wimpy. Also takes extra damage in Wimpy form
  • Wolfgang can build a Gym Station structure
    • Player will need to use the gym to gain mightiness
    • Players can load the gym with different heavy items to change its effectiveness
    • Consumes hunger as players work out
  • Wolfgang can craft a consumable Dumbbell item to restore his Might on the go. It does not consume hunger and can be used as a weapon

A note about this refresh
When we started these character refreshes, we approached them by saying "This is what we're adding to a character to make people who like that character like them more. We made X more X-like". In this case, we knew (as many players suspected) that Wolfgang was going to need a bit of a nerf. Obviously, that's going to cause some friction, so we approached Wolfgang in a way that would focus his role and improve on the character fantasy rather than just doing what he already did but better. The result is a character that is more specialized and focused on being "The Strongman" both in and out of combat. We're still certainly keeping an eye on feedback, but we'd like you all to give it some time and let us know what you think.
