      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. Don't Starve: The Survivors Challenge So you've clumped together your resources. Grass/berries/saplings trees all neatly together for easy access. Plentiful turbo farms to keep you occupied through the days while you replant seeds and stock up on manure. Silly dogs won't matter with all this armor i stocked up on. Do you consider yourself an average to advanced player? Feel safe in a dangerous world? How about a challenge of your skills... Rules: - No Planting: Cannot plant Pine cones, Grass tuft, Saplings, Berry bushes. The world is your oyster. - Campfires Only: No re-lightable Fire Pits, Torches, Torch exploits, Firefly exploits. - No Farm Plots: Cannot use regular/turbo farms. Hunt for your food. But you can use crock pots. - No Hats: No Beekeepers, Football Helmets, Miners Hat. You can make any other hat you want. - Spears Only: What do you need tentacle spikes for anyways? - No Pig King: Get your gold tools from rocks. - Full Inventory: No dropping items on the floor. What you pick up stays in your inventory/backpack/chest until used. Except for backpacks, accidentally grabbed plantable items, traps, graveyard treasure. You may store items in chests. - No Trap Exploiting: Traps laid must be baited with seeds,carrots etc. Cannot stack them on top of rabbit holes. Rabbits must be hunted by baited traps, no AI pathing exploits.

Mini Goals(Optional fun): Collect a max stack of any type of food Collect all golden tools Collect every unrestricted hat Craft 3 Pig Houses Craft 3 Bee Boxes Cook 3-4 mandrakes Grow an epic beard with wilson (The 4th stage.) Slay a warepig, tallbird, swamp tentacle Slay a fire hound Defeat a group nests of spiders larger than 2 Challenges that might also interest you: Captain patato's challenge.
  2. Alternatively there are plenty of made up challenges and side goals to entertain yourself with. There are still plenty of things with a little creativity you could do besides keep your belly full.
  3. An ALTERNATE idea for STORY Mode

    With all these stylistic capitals and abbreviations it would be kind of hard not to be intrigued. There is clearly something going on in a thread like that.
  4. Secret image on the trailler

    Fixed that once again. There should now be no further confusion.
  5. Crop Chance (Based on 1000 seeds)

    Great work I guess this pretty much makes gamekids results solid.
  6. More like, blew up since then with beta to number 6 or higher
  7. Need Help for importing worlds!

    Welcome! I believe something like this might be in your interest. For chrome: you can just make a new chrome profile by going into settings scrolling to users and adding a new user. Then you can toggle between 2 games by changing profiles. For steam i'm not sure but it's in that thread.
  8. Renewable vs Not-Renewable

    Hmm... I personally think either we will run out of pigs. Or they will take pig skins out of football helmets and pig houses. Though thinking about it now, i doubt that because we would then have no use for pig skins. I speculate pig skins will possibly be a bit easier to get in the future.

    Np at all, You're welcome to join the discussion and help a fellow quote hunter
  10. I understand. What i mean is most people are a little bit spoiled with their tools. They don't have to buy the "Full package" Without first experiencing first hand what that package fully is. It's one thing to get a taste, another to get a bit of eye candy for it. But some consumers feel that doesn't properly demonstrate what the game really feels like to play. Now i'm not knocking your demo skills or anything. But i feel like having played the demo before me and my friend bought the game. You honestly don't really get any experience that relates to fully playing the game. But that's just my opinion. You get a tiny taste for the concept of collecting items. But no dangers/survival. The time should either be extended or the amount of content should be limited with unlimited play. Either way i'm not saying that would fully stop piracy. Yes, Not everybody pirates just because demos aren't always filling enough. I know some people are just going to pirate simply because they can. They just want a new game and that's all they really care about. I'm not part of that. I do understand wanting to fully scope something out before spending hard earned money on entertainment though. Edit: Also because that felt mostly negative, which i don't enjoy. I'd like to add on that this is an amazing game. I am definitely happy with the way you guys communicate with your community and polish this game for the better. I'm glad i didn't turn away from it. Cause i now know i would of completely missed out on some valuable entertainment.
  11. Observations about Maxwell

    http://forums.kleientertainment.com/showthread.php?2940-The-Unofficial-Character-Guide-(Who-is-the-best-character-) Well this may further help your research SHAMELESS PLUGS AND THINGS.
  12. Small Birds

    I think they are means to keep tallbird from going extinct, But once fully grown will peck your eyes out. So something along the lines of: It's so cute! I made like 50 of these little things to keep me company. Look at em go awww-WGOD THEIR EVERYWHERE, IT HURTS SO BAD!
  13. Rope insane fire fuel?

    Kevin said he may of gone overboard, he'll be looking to change some of the numbers this patch.
  14. I'm more of the type to pirate it and then buy it shortly after. If you want my honest opinion on the matter. I think it's the demo itself. Most people are going to play the demo and get an empty experience from it, So they just pirate it, Realize it isn't a terrible game and dish out the 11 dollars. I know that's not really convenient for indie developers such as yourself. But i like to think of it more as "smart consumers". Maybe we are a bit spoiled by what the internet allows us to do. You guys have been really kind about it instead of just telling us how disgusting we are. But would you buy a crate of chips you've never eaten a bag of before?
  15. He acts when you act naughty. You slaughter 50 rabbits... You get your stuff stolen. But just remember, We all thought dogs were going to be the end of the world based on what kevin was telling us. The days didn't really get harder to survive as time went on. Once you're past 100 they seemed essentially unchanging. Either way you're not meant to keep your stuff. You're meant to progress forward in the story keeping only what you can carry. You guys gotta used to the idea that you won't be keeping anything you have right now. It's beta.
  16. Better progression

    This sounds an awful lot like a suggestion Don't worry about dying to get your exp. The dev's have said they will most likely change it as it takes away from the gameplay rather than supports it. There will hopefully be some kind of scaling while you play exp style so you can just switch to a new character in the same game. If not that then probably just the storyline method. Beat the story with one character and unlock the next.
  17. Juicy Mappy Goodness

    Anyone else notice the bump in number of beehives? I hope that remains official. The more the merrier!

    Who likes a blasting out of tune trumpet? My neighbors are on the quest to figure out if i do.
  19. Bridge of the year award

    Hey don't knock the scenic route.
  20. Great content update. I see everyone already decoded the spider queen and messages! boo! But great job. I wonder what the pause button is for? Gameplay? Music?
  21. It's like a nail against a chalk board!

    Haha, That and the females name is "Dee Dee"

    Whenever i see your name i think of this.
  24. Coping with death

    Hahahaha, this still never fails to give me a cheap laugh. All those times with the tentacles...Acceptance...
