This is my first post on the forums; Hi! What I wanted to address was how the game is becoming more and more difficult for new players to pick up. Grass Gekkos and Disease: Imagine you've just found out about DST, and bought it due to the multiplayer aspect. You've died a few times before, but have started to get the hang of the game. You've set up your base. It's not much - but you're proud of it. However, the next time you go back on the world, when harvesting the grass, an explosion of stupid little green creatures lights up your screen with horror and dread. "My grass!" you exclaim, in a state of shock. You'd worked so hard to get through the game far enough to have a quaint little base of your own, but alas, your crops have become sentient. After an hour or so recovering from this cruel betrayal, you jump back in, as eager as ever. You survive the winter, barely making it through. However, now you can see a little black patch on one of your berry bushes. What should you do? Shrugging, you leave it alone, assuming it is just a graphical glitch, or something you shouldn't be bothered about. ~~~~~ 5 days have passed, and you are heartbroken. Half of your berry bushes are gone, with naught but a piece of rot for you to remember them. Through your teary eyes, you continue to play, barely scraping by, and making it into spring, and then summer. A BIG point; the Antlion. You've made it to summer! You couldn't believe your eyes when your world was met with a saturated hue, and frogs no longer threw themselves upon you from the clouds. A friend has told you about overheating and wildfires; you are prepared. Your base - now rebuilt after you tentatively herded your gekkos into a pen - is sustainable and ready for the world ahead. You couldn't be more proud of yo- What was that?! A piece of text, that your character has never said before, about the ground. A mole boss? Earthquake? You have no clue! As you've done many times before, you craft your spear and log suit, and prepare to fight. But this was no fight. Not at all. This was the Antlion. ~~~~~~~~~~ Your base is destroyed; your keyboard has been broken; your computer has been pulverised, and - in a fit of unquenchable rage - you have burnt your actual house down. Such an innocent game that had a very good, albeit challenging, learning curve, has turned into the reason you have mandatory therapy 10 hours a week. FIN Now this is obviously a giant exaggeration of real-life events (this is just meant to be a hypothetical situation), but imagine if this had happened to you when the vanilla singleplayer came out all those years ago! The newest additions to don't starve, as far as I can see, have just been a nuisance, and have added next to no content that affected the rest of the game; this makes it incredibly difficult for new players to get started, and really puts people off of the game. Thanks for reading, and I hope to write more on these forums for some time to come. tl;dr : The newest mechanics added to the game have been more of a nuisance than a fun addition.
With the release of the free A New Reign expansion, comes more puzzles and mysteries from Klei. The Fuelweaver's 3rd form, fightable in the Atrium, has a string of quote that said "Metheus..." The user @ImDaMisterL, with his ingenious and brilliant mind, just goofed up the webpage and inputted that there as a what if. What an Einstein. Click here to be redirected to the puzzle's page! So, what exactly lead the community to think something was going on? Klei posted the release trailer of the A New Reign free expansion: And it had some moments where hidden images could be seen i one paused at the right time before/after/in the middle of transitions. The first one: The second one: The First Day When entering the website, you'd be face to face with this: Ater that, the user @Mobbstar used pro hacking skills to access the available assets page and found 4 very interesting images: Those images appeared to depict the murals that told us a bit of the ancients' story in-game, but much more detailed now, of course. People realized though, that the 2nd mural was missing. Some time after, Klei restricted the assets page more than before, and if you tried getting those images now, they'd be like this: The Metheus page updated again that day, adding bowls of what seems to be paint and brushes: The Second Day The page updated once again: @CarlZalph Made a compilation of the symbols and the apparent alphabet of the ancients: And @Zeklo made a post with each individual symbol, found here: @Cherryzion made a compilation of the symbols we've had in older puzzles, their names and meanings: The page updated 3 more times that day: @Maslak Made a truly great discovery as well: metheus.dontstarvetogether.com/tenebris The Third Day In this day, the page updated thrice! According to @Canal_WP, the page will update 2 more times today, at 2:55 and 10:55 PM, as it appears to update every 8 hours. EDIT: That turned out to be wrong The Fourth Day So far, the page has only updated once today: Thank you so very much, @Aeschwutz, for helping me with all the images I haven't (and even the ones I have) collected. This probably would've taken much more time if it wasn't for your awesome help! Huge Update (And link to guide!) This topic would be updated as the puzzle progressed, but I'm a bit busy nowadays, so I'll take longer to update it properly.
