But you haven't died.... It almost makes the whole process seem pointless, the counter is even displayed in the top right and should only represent when you die (finish surviving) and not when a world ends.
I noticed today if you go into another world using the wooden thing your days completely reset even though you haven't really died. The fact they reset makes the idea of going through a lot less appealing and ruins seeing how long my character has been alive for. It eventually will be difficult to not use the wooden thing and getting a new world is nice and all but i really think the count should continue regardless of the amount of worlds you have been through before you die... Anyone agree?
