Don't Starve

  1. Hi there, I've been playing Don't Starve for awhile and really love the game; but, I feel like it could use a few more improvements (which makes sense since it's still in BETA and the creators are still shaping the game). The main thing right now that I feel like should be added to the game is a save function controlled by the player. I mentioned this already on Twitter and rethought how it could work. When a player wants to quit out of the game via the ESC key menu (ESC key -> Main Menu), when they're asked if they really want to quit, it'll save where they are in the game. That way players can take a break whenever they want without waiting for dawn/dusk. I understand there may be ways to exploit this feature but I feel like it should exist in some form. @CoreyRollins on Twitter mentioned something about making a save a build-able item and that could work but I wish there was some way to brain storm a way to keep players honest with instant-saves without lagging out the game with background saving. One thought I had was, once a player logs back into their self-saved game, that save is deleted; and, if they quit the game without waiting for dusk/dawn or self saving, they go all the way back to their last automatic save (aka dusk/dawn). It could work but it's definitely something that needs to be looked at and maybe tested. Anyway, I'll be sure to keep playing the game and giving some feedback. It's seriously a fun game and I look forward to it being launched in it Gold form. ~MegHartie
