After sinking tons of time into Don’t Starve, I haven’t returned to it in a while. I know the new expansion is really cool, but I just haven’t had a chance to fall down that rabbit hole again. Now, I’m ready to jump back in, and throw other people down the hole, too.
Don’t Starve Together is the multiplayer/co-op update for Don’t Starve. It’s still in Beta, but it is grabbing its first update and looks like an absolute troll game:
For the non-YouTube people, you can watch over here.
So you can choose how you want to play the game. Personally, I think I’m too much of a pacifist to troll people in Don’t Starve. The game is already so hard, with so many things trying to kill you. There are even boulders that come from the moon in this new update. I’m much more likely to try to work together with my co-op buddies, dividing up the work of exploration, gathering and survival. I like the idea of being the one to go out foraging and exploring while someone else stays at our camp, building walls, cooking meals, creating new technologies and just generally making life back at home much easier. Wait, I think I want a wife in Don’t Starve…
Have you played Don’t Starve in its original form? Are you keen to give co-op a try, or did dying too easily put you off? At least with co-op, you can haunt your friends – what could be better than that?
