WHY WE LOVE IT
Here’s the thing, we love Don’t Starve but we also fear it…
Why, you might ask?
Because this game knows us more than we know ourselves. This game has all of the addictive features of Minecraft, but with the overhead view and Tim Burton aesthetic that reminds us all why we loved the 90’s oh so very much.
Contrary to the game’s title, you’ll be doing plenty of starving… so all you starving fans out there don’t worry. The simple task of living through the first night is plenty to get all of your problem solving juices going, but after time you’ll find yourself coming across a litany of other challenges the world throws at you. After some time, after you’ve gone fully down the rabbit hole and are equipped with armor and have built a self-sustaining village to ensure that your starving days are behind you, you’ll be enveloped in the game’s story mode.
The game’s intuitive nature from beginning to end makes Don’t Starve a highly addictive and enjoyable game to play, and almost perfectly teeters the edge of becoming a major time drain without going quite that far. The combination of that well balanced gameplay and it’s super cool overall design make it one of our favorites of the year.
