[WiP] Don't Starve parody of Dumb Ways to Die

Recommended Posts

~Matt    402

So, I was thinking, when life gives you lemons what if we could make a Don't Starve parody of

? I then thought of getting a team together to do it, as one single person would take too long or not even be able to do it, so this is what I need:

Freeze to death in the winter

Eat monster meat for dinner

Go hungry after sleeping all night

Strike a herd of Beefalo in broad daylight

Chorus:

Dumb ways to die!

So many dumb ways to die!

Dumb ways to die!

So many dumb ways to die!

Take a tentacle to the face

Stand still in an Underground quake

Getting licked by a horde of toads

Not running when a forest fire grows

Chorus

Make small talk with a Pig Guard

Plant spider eggs on your front yard

Go hunting with no armor on

Find a Tallbird and steal its son

Chorus

Visit the Merms for vacation

Getting mauled by hallucinations

Eating mushrooms red, green, or blue

You seriously think you can take on Grue?

Chorus

Facing Beefalo during mating season

Attack a bee hive for no good reason

Get hit in the face with your own boomerang

Eating a dozen pieces of Rot

Build a portal into Maxwell's World

They may not rhyme, but they’re quite possibly

The dumbest ways to die

The dumbest ways to die

The dumbest ways to die

So many dumb

So many dumb ways to die

Be safe, while you can. A message from Maxwell.

I can help with the writing! :)Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/ral365Sector: WritingDid you work in something like this before?: Yes and No. I'm minoring in creative writing in college (and I'm currently a senior), but I've never written for a song before.(BTW, are you paying anybody to make this video? I can get it done much faster if this is a commission.)

No I'm actually not, mostly because I have no means of doing so and also because I'm not getting anything with it, it's just fans working with each other to do something nice.Added you to the writers list.

You could do it via PayPal, but I understand. I'll still volunteer if this video's going viral, like on YouTube or something. I've seen a lot of funny DWtD parodies XP

ANIMATION YOU SAY?Well, I can be a last-hope option! Do I need to audition, though, just for quality control?

If anything, you should at least pay the animators for the video. I'm an animation major in college myself, and they do a LOT of heavy-lifting. I just happen to be personally more fond of creative writing.

What I actually meant about "means" was that I don't have the money.

I know it's no easy work, but as I said above, I'm unable to pay because of the lack of money.

Do I need to audition, though, just for quality control?

Just if you feel like giving that satisfaction. It's not like you're getting paid, so I won't force the best out of anyone.

Woah, who said anything about money?

I'm saying is, this is what I'm able to do with a whole 20 minutes of work. Now, keep in mind, the actual animation looks better, it's just, Flash exports such crappy GIFs. If I were to spend and hour exporting into an uncompressed .avi, then it would look MUCH, MUCH Better [and it would be a large, large file]!

Wow. For a 20-min work that's great! I'm adding you in the animation team, but just remember to put your Steam profile link here (you can just edit the post) so we can keep contact for progress watch.

[MENTION=43632]ral365[/MENTION] Maybe we can pick a time and start working on the lyrics? I've got a few ideas already for what we can do.

I'm WAY ahead of you! Here's what I've got so far..

Dumb Ways to Die in “Don’t Starve”

Freeze to death in the winter

Eat a bunch of monster meat

Go hungry after sleeping all night

Strike a herd of Beefalo in broad daylight

Chorus:

Dumb ways to die!

So many dumb ways to die!

Dumb ways to die!

So many dumb ways to die!

Take a tentacle to the face

Standing still in an Underground quake

Getting licked by a horde of toads

Not running off when a forest fire grows

Chorus

Make small talk with a Pig Guard

Plant spider eggs on your front yard

Go hunting with no armor on

Commit suicide before your Chester respawns

Chorus

Visit the Merms for vacation

Getting mauled by hallucinations

Eating mushrooms red, green, or blue

You seriously think you can take on Grue?

Chorus

Pay a visit to old MacTusk and Son

Attack a bee hive for no good reason

Get hit in the face with your own boomerang

Facing red Beefalo without a Beefalo hat

Eating a dozen pieces of Rot

They may not rhyme, but they’re quite possibly

Dumbest ways to die

Dumbest ways to die

Dumbest ways to die

So many dumb

So many dumb ways to die

I'd help out with footage, but last time I was trying to do a vid with Fraps it didn't recognize Don't starve as a game for some reason. Maybe cause I play standalone...

K, but still, let's go in Steam so we don't fill the thread in with too many messages.

Kay, just give me your Steam name and I'm gonna add you.

Or we could send private messages in this forum, but Steam's ok too. Have you sent me a friend request yet?

Well that's an option. I find Steam a lot more practical tho, and yeah, I have sent you a friend request.

Albinowyvern, coincidentally :p You might want to wait with adding me, though, until I test out if Fraps will capture the steam version for me or someone advises me to use some other program.

If Fraps doesn't work there is DxTory, if that works.Oh and, please send a link. I'm never able to find people using the Steam search, so that's why I ask for links. Edited by ~Matt

So, for me to animate a chorus, I need to know:- What characters die and how- When each set of characters die. Although... there are 21 deaths... huh. Let me just count the playable characters [minus Waxwell, he's the one broadcasting this message] ... ooh... 7 characters...

I'd assumed you wanted Wilson only, but I do have all the characters unlocked, so that won't be a problem, either.

But, my problem is, I'm supposed to make all the mutilated people dance after their death has been introduced, if we're staying true to the song, but there is triple the amount of deaths than playable characters...Unless you want me to do the "1 million dead Wilsons" route...

Each character could die three times!

I assumed you meant that since there are 21 deaths and 7 characters, then that's 3 deaths per character. :PEdit: DAMN NINJAS!

But, the crowd is supposed to keep getting bigger! You really only want 4 people for EACH chorus?
