Don't Starve - suggestions :)

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Just heard about the game last week and I'm sorta addicted now :) Spent about 10 hours playing over the long weekend (on and off)! so much fun

- will this be MMO? My boyfriend and I played right beside each other and we kept talking about how it would be nice to be able to help each other, so we can focus on different tasks (farming, hunting, gathering, map exploring, etc.) It will also be more fun because after being able to build everything on the available list, I started wanting tough challenges I can participate with other users.

- last week, there was this tent thing I built where I can buy things with gold. but when I started over the weekend, it seems like that option is gone.. will it be back Soon? :D

- around day 70'ish, some error occurred, and i got kicked out of the game with an error message. i lost all my items :( I was annoyed and told my bf that i woudln't play again until there's save mode. 3 minutes later, I started playing again...

- can there be an item where it makes you walk faster? (maybe a pair of nike shoes!!) i would pay my gold coins for that.. will be handy to explore the map faster.

- will there be more maps?

Tips!

- caring a torch takes less resources than keeping a firepit going all night. it takes 6 branches and 9 grasses for all night if you start the torch right when it gets really really dark. i started doing this once i got used to the game. First i got scared, and threw lots of fuel into the fire pit and stayed there but then I realized that I should carry torch and do some gathering at night time. (since you cannot use tools while carrying a torch).

- it could be the beta thing but right now all 3 different types of farms give you 2 carrots each. it's best to go with the cheapest one. (in fact, the middle farm never gave me anything..)

- when fighting spiders, make sure that you have an empty slot in your boxes.. you can kill one and just pick up the meat and fight the other ones that come to you. (If you don't have the empty slot, it means you either have to eat while other spiders come to you, or you drop it and run and risk the spider eating the meat..)

I can't wait for the game to fully launch. it's so much fun :)

I've tried out all three farms now.. The first one let me plant seeds (never tested anything else) The second one let me plant seeds and berries(didn't try carrots)And the third farm let me do all three.. Tried planting the sapling but to no affect.

Hey Elliemoon, glad to hear you're enjoying the early beta! We just pushed out a new release today, and I'd answer your questions here.

- will this be MMO? My boyfriend and I played right beside each other and we kept talking about how it would be nice to be able to help each other, so we can focus on different tasks (farming, hunting, gathering, map exploring, etc.) It will also be more fun because after being able to build everything on the available list, I started wanting tough challenges I can participate with other users.

This game will not end up being an MMO. It's designed to revolve around Wilson being stranded and lost and managing his resources. We are however exploring ways that players can "interact" with each other, but we don't have any details on that yet.

- last week, there was this tent thing I built where I can buy things with gold. but when I started over the weekend, it seems like that option is gone.. will it be back Soon? :D

That's the Science Machine! We had to take it away to fix a few things, but in exchange, allowed you to build everything while it was gone. Now that it's back, you'll need to buy a recipe for certain advanced items before Wilson can build them.

- around day 70'ish, some error occurred, and i got kicked out of the game with an error message. i lost all my items :( I was annoyed and told my bf that i woudln't play again until there's save mode. 3 minutes later, I started playing again...

First off, that sucks. Sorry to hear that happened to you on such a long game run. Things can go on the fritz while we're in early beta, but we do our best to make sure they don't! We get an email with a crash report if something does happen, so stability will improve with every release. Thanks for your patience during the early beta!

- can there be an item where it makes you walk faster? (maybe a pair of nike shoes!!) i would pay my gold coins for that.. will be handy to explore the map faster.

There isn't one yet, but we'll add it to the suggestion box! We love getting suggestions like this, so don't be shy with them :D On the same topic, we did release new WASD controls today, so you can use the keyboard to walk if you prefer.

- will there be more maps?

Short answer, yes. Right now you already get a totally new map every time you die. So, each game will be different. We're also looking at other methods of expanding the world outside of death though.

Hope that helps answer your questions! Thanks so much for the feedback! It's really helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions. To check out the latest changes, direct your eye-peepers towards our latest release post!
