Why has nothing really appeared in the last month or so?


Recommended Posts

I keep looking here and really it's just some small updates and hotfixes. No big updates, or information on them, no trailers, nor clues for puzzles. I'm starting to feel as if this is how far Don't starve will go, though, it really won't, so how long till something very awesome happens, like a trailer, big update or a puzzle? If devs are trying to look for a way of getting multiple worlds working, they're just wasting their time, because it's probably impossible and it would probably be easier to just make multiple worlds in the same space in some way.

And you know this because you are a different kind of pro, right?

Who are you to dictate what is or what is not impossible.

Get off your high horse.

Not dictating anything, just saying that it's PROBABLY impossible, I mean, if it was, then devs would probably had made it work by now even with a lot of errors and such. Just saying :/

 

But what does that have to do anything with my "proness" in the game? I'm good at playing the game, but not good at programming. Just suggested that it's probably pointless trying to get the caves or adventure mode going as if they were different worlds.

Wow XirmiX, you're so positive and optimistic about all the hard work and long hours poured into creating this game, and the ingenuity and capabilities of our favorite devs. :encouragement:  How about until Jamie is signing your paychecks, you hold off telling them just how impossible their dreams and goals are, mkay?

 

  • Dec 15th, the game went into Early Access/open beta on Steam. That's the big update.
  • The following 7-10 days, the devs worked their tails off fixing bugs that were making EA unplayable. That's FAR MORE important than making a video teaser.
  • Klei then was out of the office for the holidays. They're people too. There's been a stickied post from JoeW on every sub-forum here explaining that they were gone, and would have very limited staff manning the forums until they returned this past Monday.

 

Here's what they plan to work on next: http://www.twitch.tv/kleientertainment/b/608718644. From Seth himself, 13:20 through about 15:30.

A bit early to be making assumptions, isn't it? You have to remember, they're a small team as well. If they weren't going to be able to get it to work, they would have said something by now. Just buckle your seatbelt and enjoy the ride, yeah?

Mkay, I see. But I'm hoping we'll see something good at least this January. Also, open beta doesn't seem like a big update to me, it's just changing the amount of people who can enter! A big update as I see it is content wise within the game, like the Moon rock stuff and Ewecus was.

There hasn't been a big update because the team has been pushing small updates constantly.

Here is the list of changes in the last 30 days. (remember, many of us were on vacation during half of this time)

You can see a list of all the updates DST has had here: http://forums.kleientertainment.com/forum/72-dont-starve-together-beta-developer-log/

Keep in mind, this is just the stuff that has been pushed live in the last 30 days. It also only includes things that we put on the changelist. Some other things like various code end optimizations aren't on this list.
