      [UPDATED] Physical Megapack Disc Issues   04/16/2018

      Update 5/11/2018 We do not have any more information at this time. The last we spoke to 505 indicated that the discs should be ready very soon. We will likely have more information next week; hopefully with full explanation of when and how to get new discs.    Updated: 4/27/2018

      On April 17th, the Don't Starve Megapack was released. Almost immediately, it was discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). The disc contained Don't Starve Together, but was without Don't Starve, Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked. As soon as we confirmed the problem we contacted our retail publisher to find out how this happened and what could be done. It's taken some time to get this far, but this is all the information we have at this time. The current status of the issue is as follows: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks.  When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc previous to 4/26/2018 can now contact Klei support HERE for a Playstation Store voucher code that includes Don't Starve Together, Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC that you can play now. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  New purchasers of the Megapack in store as of 4/26/2018 should be given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt. If you do not get a code, contact us ALL purchasers will have a path to get a new disc when they are ready. We do not have details at this time, but we are comitted to ensuring that all players get what they purchased.  We are hearing from some players that some retailers are telling players that they will not be exchanging discs. We believe this to be incorrect and that particular person or location is just misinformed. 505 has ensured us that they are doing their best to make sure these discs are being replaced for all players. We will not allow anybody to fall through the cracks here. We will buy and ship the discs ourselves if we have too.   This was our first major retail release and we're extremely disappointed that our players have been let down with their purchase of the Don't Starve Megapack. We're doing our best to make sure this issue gets resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks everybody for your support and patience. We'll keep you updated.    UPDATE: (4/26/2018) We are now ready to send out vouchers to players who purchased the physical version of the Don't Starve Megapack - These codes will allow players to download and play Don't Starve and DLC as well as Don't Starve Together To get a voucher players can contact as at our support site: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/portal/emails/new  For the subject, choose "PS4 Megapack" and fill in the form and we'll get you fixed up as soon as possible.  We will require a picture of your receipt, your Klei account ID and the region you are located in (so we can give you the proper voucher).  UPDATE: (4/24/2018) Earlier this week, we discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). It’s a really unfortunate situation and we’ve been working hard with 505 to resolve this as soon as possible. Below is the latest information: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks. When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc will also be able to contact Klei support for a voucher code that includes Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC until the new disc is ready. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  We will have more details when they become available including details on contacting us and what information we might need.  Once again, thanks to everybody for their patience while we work this out.

    This is a pretty good illustration. The shading and texture of the clothing is well-done.
  2. Going on a trip out of town, so this is just sort of a... Status explanation of sorts? I'll be gone for some days, but perhaps I will return with some new pencil drawings, we'll see.
  3. Spindlewick's Art

    I really like this picture of Wendy. I think the expression is really good, and the included quote adds to it. This too, is incredibly atmospheric and artistic. It definitely has a dark or forgotten look to it, something bewildered and observing... Very impressive. I like these ones too. I saw some of their concepts for ninja skins for Wilson and WX-78 too. I like your interpretation for Wendy's and Webber's. These are really funny. I've never seen him portrayed like this before, and it's pretty amusing. Especially with him using (Commands? Uh, keyboard buttons? What do I call those?) as he does actions. Like 'Esc' in the picture with Webber. Ahhh, Mononoke hime. It's a good movie, and the skin does kinda match it... Though Princess Mononoke and Wendy seem to have pretty different personalities. You seem to do really well with Wendy's poses, she always has an air of elegance to her in your drawings.

    I agree, this is pretty funny. He looks like a half-dressed cultist of some kind. XD Wendy and Abigail look surprisingly fitting in police uniforms. The sunglasses are great. I have a world in DST where a Moosegoose pops up right next to camp each year with her young included. BL Me and my sister killed the babies off while the mother was still alive to prevent them from enraging later, then since the mother is less... Interested in eating my crops, I just let her be until summer because I was too busy with taming a voltgoat (I tried to do it in spring because I'm crazy.) and had plenty of food, so I didn't need to.
  5. Ria's Papyrus Pad

    Interesting. I think you did well on the facial structure and anatomy-stuff like that; The shape of the chin, where the ears are positioned, ect. I hope you find a style that suits his hair. I know wild, spiky shapes take a lot of interest... Maybe if you bend them back somehow or in some other direction, or have less/more 'prongs?' Just suggestions of things to try while looking for suitable hair. I personally saw no problem with the hair here, but I don't know the character either, so I wouldn't know if the hair failed to match the personality. Above is just suggestions on how to change the hair in hopes of finding something you like more.
  6. Oh? I've never done Methus, so that's interesting to know. Very interesting indeed... So Terrorbeaks and such are the spirits of the ancient peoples who once inhabited the caves?
  7. True, and also as Wendy quotes about Maxwell. Rather, they have quotes like Wilson's remark on Willows Lighter: "It's her lucky lighter!" I believe there are more than that but, such as they hint at family relations in characters, there are quotes about this stuff too. Agreed, they're all friends. Only mean't that, however, some seem to get along more than others or mention each other more. (EX: Wendy remarks on the candy spiders around halloween time, "Don't worry Webber, it's just candy." - My memory may be foggy, but it was something along those lines. My sister kept spamming Wendy's examination quote at me in-game because she's really into Webber and Wendy. It was when our world was during Halloween, of course. ) Agreed, Willow is tall, but not sure those are sure-fire either as they don't really show much difference otherwise between that of Wolfgang and others, and maybe Wigfrid looking slightly smaller. I think they're deliberately keeping sizes even because they're mostly equal in-game as well, and Klei tends to keep their character's giant heads and general body sizes/proportions in the trailers. It's a minor indicator, but not a full one - Were I to guess some realistic sizes for the charcaters, I'd have to guess there was some difference between Maxwell, Wilson, Winona, Wendy, Wickerbottom, Woodie, Willow, Non-upgraded-WX and the others - To have this many all be the same exact size seems very unlikely. But Klei shows them that away because, otherwise some obvious ones (Like Wolfgang), they probably want it to have a little bit of interpretation, or they wanna stay close to the game's style. I do think they verified that Willow is a little tall and Wilson is a little short, though? But that doesn't speak of Wicker and Winona and Woodie and all the others with normal hunger drain and 150 max hunger. Yeah, I never saw the insanity creatures as being Them. More like minions of whatever Them happen to be... Or something like that. The shadow creatures just don't seem, uh, intelligent enough. (I watch them run into a wall trying to chase me, slowly smear their faces across it until at last, they find the door, I smack them and they just teleport outside the wall and repeat the process... ) Calling WX 'They' would indeed cause some confusion. They don't seem like opposites to me but I understand why they associate them, the interaction of the personalities is interesting. But it doesn't have to be romantic to have personalities interact. Further details on that here. That too. She's probably less put-off when he DOES talk about destroying the world, part of why friendship had a slightly better chance between the two in my interpretation. Only friendship though, but one that developed because they also lived in the same camp for a while, so that's why it has a sibling-like nature to it. (Occasional disagreements, usually working together to do things though, and comfortable working together/used to being around each other, so not surprised or shocked by each other's nature or the way each other might act. She won't question it when he says he wants to destroy the world and he doesn't question it when she says she wants to die, is sort of an "Oh, that's just (WX-78/Wendy) being themselves.") I'll put this next one into a spoiler then. Probably need to go up and start doing that anyway.
  8. That's more or less why it's drawn out. Some people see WX as being truly aloof and apathetic, not even faking... I think I lean more towards the side of him having some inkling of care but that's only my personal view. I would like it to be more for interpretation if I ever re-do it. (So I would merely hide his thoughts and the first explanatory panel.)
  9. Aside of my giant blocks of text... A new scanning method. Not sure if I like it or not but I have to put up with it now. This was done around 30 minutes while waiting for pies to finish baking. I had prepared 8 pies, 5 cherry and 3 raspberry, made a huge mess and exhausted myself cleaning it all and fixing it all, and in the end as the last four pies were baking, I did this while finally having a small break. Walani appears to be insulting him, uh, at least indirectly. If you can't read the dialog because my handwriting is too horrible. I'll write it here. "You seem to be the sort who's single..." "No I'm not, I have someone." "WHAT?!" "She's right here. Cooking is my love." Here we have another low-quality scribble, done under an hour. Sorry but, as far as drawings go, I don't really try on all of these. At least there should be an identifiable difference between me trying and me not trying. (The shadow skins have, so far, been real attempts. These however, are not.) I already know they're full of anatomical flaws and such, but I guess I don't feel like perfection is their goal. My sisters were the ones who encouraged me to even show these, as otherwise I was going to keep them to myself because of their low quality. The inspiration for this is difficult to explain. The chances any of this is legible are also very low. There's notes to the side describing future revision - I may move some of these to digital art soon, or basically re-do them, for clarity and improved quality, and maybe better execution. But only if the idea is worth it... I get the feeling that these might not be. To describe. There is a pot luck - A soup or stew, everyone adds their own unique ingredient to the soup. An example is Wigfrid adding meat. (Which would be obvious.) WX-78 reluctantly decides he wants to add as well, but I feel his motives should be concealed, as well as whatever it was he added. Later on, Wilson and others try the soup, it happens to be heavenly. They go about asking to find out the cause of why, everyone added pretty normal stuff. Eventually it boiled down to WX-78 who, when questioned, answered, 'I added that which I most hate to eat.' Whether he's lying to conceal some actual desire to participate or actually honest (Maybe he added sweet-potatoes, I read in his quotes that he doesn't like them.) isn't supposed to be known, but the comic implies that he added bananas and is lying. I may, as said before, revise this implication if I ever re-do this one.
  10. DS Art Thread for a New Year's Resolution

    Now this, is a great frog. This singular frog has ultimately impressed me. On a more serious, less failed-humor note, the shading here is really good, he really looks like he's popping out of the picture. I love the expressions in this, a lot. Especially the WX-78 right there... Usually we see glaring spite or enthusiasm for all the wrong reasons, but this has a more ponderous look to it that's definitely appreciable. It's so fitting to him, and also a refreshing difference at the same time. Helps to add more dimension to the idea of his character, that sort. This is an interesting setting, the feel and the colors is sort of whimsically sad. Which again, is of course, very fitting to Wes. I like it a lot.
  11. True, they could be siblings/cousins for all I know. I would agree is entirely how we interpret it. There are marriages I know even within my own family with 10-year age differences though, so it's not madness. I would never say a romantic association is 'agreed to' by Klei, or that they would openly claim any to be official. But they have hints and pairings and character quotes regarding each other that clearly show some kind of friendship between different characters, whether that relationship be romantic or merely friendly. I went on even more of one, and so could I. No worries. I worry. Maybe I'll do it after you've read it all, but maybe, since this is an ART thread, I should go back and hide my rambles so people don't have to scroll so much. A giant ramble can be found inside this spoiler. Yeah, technically speaking 'They.' A non-throned WX-78 refers to a throned Wx-78 as 'WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOU, BROTHER,' (That being his official quote, I believe?) which is why I infer male instead of anything else. But yeah, only 'he' because that's easier when it boils down to it. Another ramble on my opinions shoved into a spoiler. They did a pretty good job of depicting crab-holes unlike my half-hearted attempts, yeah.
  12. Agreed. I count Wx-78 as such, but I don't think he's pair romantically... They would have to pair a male with a male. There's no other way because there aren't enough female characters to have every female with a male. Regardless of any romantic intentions, they'd have to pair a male with a male somewhere. But while I could see Klei hinting at romance between Wilson and Willow (They walk together on the screen of DST these days, look at each other in Forge trailer, ect.) who were paired together as 'Matches and Theories.' I don't think Woodie and Wx-78 are supposed to be as such, for an example. It seem pretty clearly implied, for that much, that Woodie is, if with anyone at all, associated with Lucy, who won't even let you pick up another Lucy if you have two people playing Woodie. Wx-78 I'd consider 'Male,' for personality and for ease (It's easier to call someone he or she, it's embedded in our grammar. ) but far from any position of having a romantic association. They had to pair males with males any way they went, unless they made more female characters (Which they did, added Winona) and then re-did the cards to pair her with someone... But they could have chosen to pair two females on the cards as well, and just had more male-on-male pairs as well, but instead opted for every female paired with a male. The meaning of this is for our interpretation. I don't think Klei would want, or that it would even be realistic - For all to have romantic associations. Wicker and Wolfgang are paired on the cards, but I don't think it's romantic. I was in church while drawing it and would have otherwise had references... ^^' Thanks for the attempts, top one looks best. Though, I've seen real crab holes before and could have easily gone back and referenced the in-game crab dens and such, to be honest... I just had my main focus on Warly, I think, and was less interested in developing the back-ground beyond some scribbles. Glad someone else likes me and my sisters' silly ideas. Yeah, I've never really been able to get perspectives like that down. I don't think I know how to draw the shapes for the body/imagine them 3-D like I need to. Everything it flat in my brain.
  13. Lame drawings by yours Truly.

    I like this webber. It's interesting how you translated his feet into toes of sorts, and the unique shape of his head-legs. Head-legs? Head-arms? Whatever they're called. This is really adorable. I can't express how perfectly fitting a Wx-plush seems, even more so from his shadow skin. It's very amusing and very charming. Wow, yeah... Loading. It's evil.

    Mooslings are always so difficult... I find them more tricky than the mother Goose herself, in a sense. Faster to kill, but they feel much more tedious. The lighting and colors are pretty neat, though, and you got the expression on the moosling just right too. Pretty sure that single frog is probably done-for.
  15. That's what my DA is for. I suppose if people don't want to bother looking there, perhaps I would. I mentioned to you longer ago I was working on a depth worm. I still am. It's going to be like one of these, so people will also have the option to see that. But I can't express how much what I do for DS is just my spare-time scribbles. Really, it is. The cosplays and such aren't, but the drawings are.
