So I wanted to talk about an idea of a Dont Starve Together adventures mode For simplicity sake we’re just going to call this Through the Portal. Growing up one of my favorite animated cartoon series was Code Lyoko and in this TV series it told the tale of kids who ventured into a virtual reality & did glorious bouts of battle against Lyoko’s various creatures- Lyoko had 4 (with additional ones added later) Zone Sectors: The Forest Zone, The Mountain Zone, The Ice Zone, and Desert Zone. Now HOW and why this is important to DST and an adventures mode is very vital: In Code Lyoko each “Zone” had its own unique hazards and enemies the shows heroes would have to combat against. Looking back at single player Dont Starve: That games campaign mode was broken up into 5 chapters, each chapter was basically the same world with the same mobs.. but each chapter had a unique gimmick. (Two worlds, infinite winter, lights out etc..) THIS Teaser image for an upcoming beta update got me really excited.. Now while this is most likely NOT what that is.... it did get me to thinking about the possibilities of “What If..” Which brought Code Lyoko and its different Sectors to mind So with that said let’s discuss through the portal: Imagine if you will: A DST five chapter adventures mode, but instead of them all being the Same-ish worlds with very familiar mobs and biomes... Klei instead opted to do things on a much larger scale (as in each chapter would be its own unique world, dangers & mobs) They already have a solid foundation: Core Content, Shipwrecked Content, Hamlet Content, Forge Content, Gorge Content, Possibly some beautiful Japanese Sakura tree biome like @ADM cherry forest mod for PC, And of Course grander scale Lunar Moon related content. This is not just tiny islands out in the ocean.. these are entire worlds full of their own unique hazards, craftables, & dangers. Now for those of you unfamiliar with Adventures Mode: this was a 5 chapter campaign through 5 randomly generated worlds each world with a unique set of rules and gimmicks, and should you die in Chapter 5 you restart again at Chapter 1 all in an epic grand scale quest to beat the game and unlock a secret playable character or two along the way. Okay so now your saying it’s not possible, it’ll never work, that many worlds running at once on different shared shards would blow your PC/Console up. And you would be correct in thinking that: but that’s why it’s called THROUGH THE PORTAL as in once you go through the portal you can never return back to the previous World- just like in Solo DS you couldn’t go back to chapter 1 unless you died and lost all progress.. Its not trying to load 5+ different worlds you can hop between at once, instead it loads only ONE world and the previous one no longer exists. Much like Code Lyoko and its different zone sectors: Dont Starve Together would have this huge and epic story mode.. where each chapter is its own world, mobs, hazards all in an epic quest to hopefully unlock Charlie as playable in the end. Now how it would work is that everyone playing Adventures Mode would need to be standing in a circular teleportation dome (think Ark survival evolved and teleporting into a boss fight) Everyone has to be in that circle (roughly the size of Feastclops red eye laser Aurora) before the game takes them through the portal and into the next world of dangers. Explore randomly generated WORLDS full of things that hate you and want you to die.. and when it comes to DST- I feel like it’s adventures mode could be done on a much much grander scale than DS solo’s ever dreamed of.
