  1. Hey all! I'm sure you've seen the new teaser for the "next big update" we've had mentioned for weeks. What we got was pirate monkeys, so I'll drop my analysis and speculation here. When the Klei team was still working on boats (before their release), a concept was left behind known as "boat AI", where mobs could control boats. I feel as if these pirate monkeys could either be a random spawn out in the ocean on their own boat to pursuit the player, or there might be an entirely new island. I do think it would be cool, (although useless), to have an "autopilot" for boats, to let a tamed monkey take the wheel. (Or have random pirate attacks out at sea.) What're your thoughts? I'd love to hear them!
  2. Recently, I wondered about what was shown in the short film "Disconnected" about the WX-78. The main goals were to understand why the WX-78 project exists and whether Wagstaff is as bad as it began to seem to many. I'm still of the opinion that the main task of Wagstaff is to study the Constant and it looks like the WX-78 project is related to this. First of all, I want to recall my old theory, namely why there is just a hologram in DS and DST Wagstaff. First, it is worth remembering where the conclusions that Wagstaff is a hologram came from: When health decreases, Wagstaff's voice is distorted as if it is broadcast through something slightly broken. While playing for Wagstaff, noises on the screen are like from a film, as if everything that we see is being broadcast somewhere If you sit on the throne for Wagstaff, then when you come to the throne next time Wagstaff is no more, which may indicate that he simply turned off the projection All arguments about the fact that in DST Wagstaff there is a hologram, starting from the name of the object in the game, ending with the ability to disappear and appear anywhere and effects on the model However, if Wagstaff in the original DS is just a projection, then why can't he teleport and has the parameters of hunger, sanity and lives. I think that his projection is capable of transmitting to him some physical properties or the real parameters of hunger, reason and lives are different from the hologram in order to be able to study the Constant not only from the side of flora and fauna, but also from the side of the ability to survive in this world and understand physics and how time flows in this world, because, as we know, physics and the flow of time in the Constant do not coincide with the real world. The second option explains why we can play Wagstaff multiple times. The fact that in DST he is able to create physical objects, but at the same time he is definitely a hologram, also indicates that his projection in Constant is semi-physical. However, contrary to the theory that Wagstaff's projection also tells his portal, if Wagstaff can broadcast himself into a Constant, then he does not necessarily need a portal to a dangerous world. Here begins the theory of why the WX-78 was created. I have important points in the short film (and not only) that I noted: The last experiment looks like "Organic components to blame?" A person can transfer his mind into the WX-78. Several WX-78s were created Loss of past person's memory Cancellation of the WX-78 project Perhaps you already understand what I mean. It looks like the predecessors of the WX-78 originally had organic components, not sure if I want to know where Wagstaff got them from, but after that they were replaced with Empathy Module acting as a moral compass (can be found in the compedium), Chemical Engine in place of the stomach (can be found in the quote on Monster Meat "IT IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH MY CHEMICAL ENGINE"), Optical Sensors in place of the eyes (сan be found in the quote on Klaus "THE RED FLESHSACK LACKS OPTICAL SENSORS"), Smelling Module in place of the nose ((сan be found in the quote on Slurper "IT VIOLATED MY SMELLING MODULE."). This explains why in the game the WX-78 also has a health, hunger and sanity bar, just like normal survivors. It looks like Wagstaff originally planned in order to study the Constant, people did not use a hologram, but moved their consciousness into a robot and passed through the portal. The fact that several robots were made may indicate that the study of the world had to take place in whole expeditions. The person who helped Wagstaff in creating the portal and WX-78, during the test of the robot, received memory lapses because of which he forgot his past and did not know how to return his mind back to his original body, this also speaks of why WX- 78 continues to be interested in The Constant, but hates Wagstaff for what hi allegedly did to him. Wagstaff, realizing that memory lapses can occur when moving the mind, cancels the project and replaces the method of studying the Constant using a second body with a hologram. It turns out that the WX-78 is an unsuccessful experiment in which no one is to blame. After a memory lapse, the man whose mind was in WX-78 began to hate Wagstaff and was most likely lured into the Wagstaff's portal by Maxwell's trickery. Also, Wagstaff initially planned to study the world instead of a hologram by transferring consciousness into a robot.
  3. I think the ending to DST is that everyone escapes the constant to the present year whenever that is, and everyone accepted the present and start to embrace the future, almost all of the characters are tied to the past, there are only 7 characters who are not tied to the past, Wilson, Wes, Walter, Wortox, Wormwood, Wagstaff, Webber. Wilson got no backstory, Wes, Walter is living in the moment, Wortox just wants fun, and Wormwood is just a newborn baby in an adult body, Wagstaff loves the future, Webber only lives in the present. In the end, Charlie will forgive Maxwell and sacrifice herself to destroy the shadow and separate the constant from THEM and free the survivors and seal THEM inside herself forever trap in a void, to make the constant a world with no god or devil to rule, the constant would enter the Contemporary Era where every creature can live together Merm, Pig, Bunny, Lobster, Crab, etc, I think this is why DST is set in the 1900s to 1920s it the decades of war and conflict, so when everyone learns to accept the present and embrace the future the constant can finally be inconstant where the future can finally be decided by the people, and the survivors sent into the present time, as they find themself in a strange new world once more. What are your idea of DST ending.
  4. This isn't so much lore as it is a theory, a game theory of mine, but I think it still fits here. Feedback is appreciated. Whether it's a simple, "This is good." or, "I disagree with this because (list of legitimate reasons)." But please no, "dis is stupud an ur stupud" ok? No one likes that. From what I can tell of the William Carter puzzles, William accumulated debt and was being threatened by who ever he owed the debt too, perhaps loan sharks. He took a train to California to visit his brother and/or escape the lone sharks. However, before he got there, the train crashed and William went missing. Now let's look at the train wreck a bit closer, shall we? The cause of the wreck was a circus cart that had gotten stuck on the track. It crashed in the middle of the dessert, miles away from any civilization. In the chaos, potentially dangerous monkeys escaped. Because of all this, the only person to go missing (aka, William) was presumed dead. So a train crashes in the middle of the desert and the only person to go missing is the one who's being hunted by loan sharks? Seems a bit too convenient, doesn't it? Now one could look at the Strongman title in the circus poster and think, "It was Wolfgang. He did it, and Maxwell found out so he trapped him in the Don't Starve world." Perhaps, but don't you think if Maxwell found the guy who tried to kill him he would punish him a bit more harshly than the random strangers he's pulled in?Now, who can we think of that was punished harshly? Wes. And in the circus poster, who does the man who's balancing on the elephant look like? Wes. My theory is, the loan sharks caught wind of William trying to ride to California. So they contacted Wes, who ether worked for them or owned a debt, and told him to take care of it. Now Wes at this time was a bit more fit than he is now. You kind of have to be in order to balance on an elephant like that. Thus, he was able to find a way to sabotage the train and make sure William ended up in the desert somewhere. Maxwell found out somehow that Wes was behind it and punished him by trapping him in an invisible box. The box wasn't big enough for him to do anything, but it still kept him alive. Thus, Wes' mental and physical deteriorated to the point where it is now. *bows*
  5. I started to think about Wilson's strange personality after noticing a comment about how he liked to be alone in the Wes animated short and I have a little theory. small disclaimer: i've rejoined recently and lack knowledge of the newer lore, so bare with me. this is also like my first ever time sharing something like this, might sound more like a rant than a thought out theory. theory starts now 1: Wilson's Dual Personality Ever noticed he spends a lot of time just isolating himself, sitting alone, thinking at a campfire? The comment I mentioned prior specifically said that a lot of the shorts just show him alone, doing nothing. But when he's actually with the other survivors, he seems a bit strange. He's a weird mix of passionate and outgoing, but cautious and nervous. It doesn't sit right with me. It feels like he's fabricated this other personality he can't get right. Especially when he outright lies to Willow and Webber in Starver's Carol, it makes you wonder if he's trustworthy. I will go into details later. 2: His True Personality He's cruel and desperate. He puts his work above everything, even himself. He's depicted as a true mad scientist in the Origin trailer, cutting himself and torturing animals for experimentation. In his portrait, the artwork that is supposed to REPRESENT him, he's grabbing an animal by the neck, choking it, trying to force feed a serum to it, while he's clearly smiling. You can see it's died already because he's probably just broken it's neck at that point. If you analyze his portrait further, you can see it's head is green, like the liquid he's pouring in it's mouth, while it's body isn't. This could just be stylistic choice to demonstrate that the animal could be sick, but the green matches the vial and I see it as the liquid not even going down it's throat since it's completely squished shut by Wilson's hand. 3: The Meat Effigy This one I'm not too sure about, I had a bit more fun with this one. I don't think he learned how to make The Meat Effigy from Maxwell's knowledge, but I think he invented it himself. There has to be a reason he boasts his genius. The Origin trailer tells us that he's a failure, and seemed slightly depressed, accepting the failed experiment and giving up until Maxwell came along. So why would a person in that state act like they're some prodigy? I think he's been tampering with dark magic for a while and managed to make the meat effigy by himself. Nobody else knows how to make it, only Wilson can. Yes, no other character can produce beard hair, but why wouldn't normal hair work? I doubt Wilson is gonna mess with his glorious hair, so he'll just shave his beard instead, but the other survivors definitely would. I mean, Maxwell is already balding, why would he care? 4: Starver's Carol Wilson outright lies in this short. He definitely knows how he was sent to the Constant. ok that's it lmao Hope you guys have some interesting things to add, or can disprove this entirely. I'd like to catch up on the lore myself and this theory can easily be disproven because I genuinely lack knowledge of some of the newer lore. The last theory I remember watching before I moved on from Don't Starve was someone freaking out over how Maxwell was William Carter, and that's it.
  6. All credits to Sundra for this theory, me for formatting and writing. PART 1: Lets just get the big thing out of the way first. We do not meet Wagstaff in DS. Well, we do. But that's not REALLY Wagstaff. Wagstaff's sitting at home eating scones on his armchair of whatever he does, while he's using the PR-76 (PRojection device) to attune himself to the Constant or wherever you are. He is nothing but a projection, a man half in the world, hence why he still interacts with it. Proof: PART 2: This is when it starts to get confusing. Wagstaff see's WX, and other robotic creations like the Clockworks. This is possible because time in the constant, as quoted by Maxwell: "Makes no ******* sense dude"-real Maxwell quote Wagstaff creates WX-78 (IRL) to form as a means to access the constant in more... efficient means, allowing him to truly interact with the one thing he desires. The nightmare throne, the secret to ultimate power. Oh, but how does he meet WX? The nightmare throne, the secret to ultimate power. Again. When Wagstaff takes the throne from WX, he leaves (the throne appears empty when the player next reaches it), and sets his ULTIMATE PLAN into action. Proof: PART 3: Wagstaff begins work on his very own portal, not dissimilar to Wilson, through which he shall send WX-78. He designs his voxila radio to be tuned to the constant in order to receive instructions from Maxwell, or whoever's in control. He activates it, sends in WX and than meets the night creature. Needless to say, they don't hit it off great and he gets pulled in. For realsies this time. In the ensuing chaos, one of his workers is sucked in and the factory burns down. COMPLETE TIMELINE: Once again, kudos for Sundra for all the work. I just wrote it down and put in funnies.
  7. DO NOTE: for this entire theory I am ASSUMING that Wagstaff is one of the upcoming characters to DS, as this seems likely with the information we have been given. This might however, prove to be incorrect. This is a just a quick theory I thought up that explains like... 3 things, but should be a good base for other theory's. We know from the little description included that Wagstaff, or whoever that is, "mysterious inventor who finds himself exactly where he wanted to be". I hear the Constant is a amazing holiday location. Alright, here's what I make of this. Wagstaff discovered something to do with the Constant. This must be a pretty interesting thing, because he wanted to get it. Bad. So much so, that he abandoned his life and fortune to find it. Through some work of science, magic, or divine interference, he finds himself in the DS multiverse-y thing that's connected through the ancient portal. But not in the constant. So, he travels through all the worlds, being mistaken as a gatekeeper by each one, until he finally finds the constant. Not much, but something.
  8. Mants. They're territorial, really annoying sometimes, and have a few funny bugs. Did I mention that..... THEY'RE ANTHROPOMORPHIC BUGS. Sadly however, nothing to do with bug people has ever appeared in the lore, so this has absolutely nothing to do with anything and is definitely not some possible connection with the ancients nobody seems to have considered yet.
  9. While in the DST preview comic we saw Wilson building the portal, in the DST new UI, in the tiny words down to the bottom of the screen, more to the right, it says "The Great Maxwell is not responsible for injuries, physical or psychic caused by the portal (something in those words). So, did Maxwell create that portal BEFORE he was sucked by Them into the Don't Starve world? Are the events of DST happening BEFORE DS? Can the portal really damage you? If so, I want a refund, Maxwell! I need more puzzles revealing the game's backstory, like, right now.
  10. In her letter to Maxwell, Charlie mentions that she's visiting her sister. Who do ya think her sister could be? I have a theory that Charlie could be one of the twins mentioned in Jacks letter. It's just a thought, but Charlie could end up being Williams niece, which would make her Maxwells niece as well.
