Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I just really need to know the answer to the following questions:

1. Will you add multiplayer to DSPE or are you going to make a separate app?

2. When will  the next update for DSPE come out?

(I don't have a computer so unfortunately I can't play with my friends at school in don't starve pocket edition since it doesn't have  multiplayer; If you respond to this I will be really grateful)

DSPE=Don't Starve  Pocket Edition

We don't have any announced plans for DST PE - it would have to be a separate app just like PC, they are different games.

As noted in the OP, console updates are coming as soon as they can but I can't give you a specific date because it's really going to depend on cert at this point. But we don't expect it to be too far off from the next PC/Mac release; and that's not to far off from now.

Sooo...you mean around march?

Just kidding :).

But seriously...if the ps4 certification takes longer...why don't you send the updates earlier than releasing the pc one? I am not dev and don't know the details about all that delay stuff, but from our (all people suffer from that delay) perspective - something like that could be the solution. It depends on you if it's worth it or not.

Are you going to bring some updates to Android version guys? We only need a fix of that blurry textures. Is it possible to bring some HD textures?

First beta was looking pretty good.

Because that would creep all of the updates out even further. Frankly the end result of waiting on releasing means that the release date creeps out even further and the end result would still be a stretch of time between pc and console. 

This is easier to do with a game release because you are generally done well before the game releases, but with game updates we're generally trying to squeeze as much extra stuff in as possible all the way up until the update goes out.

We will, unfortunately Android is the one furthest behind. It's still going to be a while before that goes out, but it will happen. I wish I had better or more specific news. But it's going to be a while still.

This... thank you so much! It's good to see that you really care. My friend wanted to know if there would be a compensation gift since he's kinda, well, pissed. This seems kinda dumb but I know that people will still be mad even when the updates are out. 

Keep up the good work,

-Roy

Just quick reminder...that tomorrow is valentine's Day :). So most of us (couples) probably will not play (at least not dst :D). But the day after? The clock is ticking and no updates yet. Usually I am patient person...but even I start to be disappointed...

I love this game to pieces and have even bought merchandise, but it’s really starting to feel like the PS4 (and console users in general) are an after thought. To be stuck on the halloween event and watching PC users making content on all of the events that we haven’t and some that we won’t get is a major bummer. Hopefully it gets updated soon :-/

Almost every current third party developer operates like this:

PC > PS4 > Switch > Mobile > Xbox

The problem is klei isn't doing that. They're doing pc>pc>pc>pc>pc>ps4>mobile>Xbox. If they were consistent about getting updates, let's say 1 month, after pc to the others that would be satisfactory. But the past year or two (I'm horrible with timelines) they update the rest whenever they get around to it. It doesn't seem like they're even trying. To be fair, they've since claimed they are going to put a renewed effort into other platforms. But it's hard to be optimistic when pc still getting update after update and we've seen literally no results

But they don’t push the updates, Joe said Klei’s partners are doing it. What I assumed they did was give the update to their partners, and they would make it work in the other platforms. 

The post Joe made, was to pretty much acknowledgement that having someone port the PC game (and updates) into other platforms, can only take you so far.
