don't starve has always been ridiculous tho. bad puns, messed up creatures, exaggerated characters, and lotsa dying. its pretty grotesque. if you want more story-related events i'm afraid you'll have to wait - if they released everything at once there'd be nothing to anticipate anymore, and personally, as an artist, i love them new designs. they're eye-candy and very pleasurable to draw. like, even i dont play as much regular dst anymore but im still into it thanks to the widely laid-out updates. i agree that people bragging isnt the greatest to look at but stuck up pricks are gonna exist in every game where it's possible to best someone. unfortunate but meh, what can you do?
(plus, if you're playing with a group of friends, you can just choose not to use any of the decorative parts of the game! theres always that option)
