I was given a copy of this game a while ago but I didn’t start playing it properly until recently and now I have fallen head over heels for this game.
Don’t Starve Together is a survival game that can be played alone but is best experienced with others. You and your fellow survivors must work together to survive as long as possible.
You need to keep an eye on your health, hunger and sanity as you create a base, find food and defend yourself from the monsters that roam around.
On top of that, if you aren’t by a source of light by nightfall you are a goner as Charlie will kill you.
I have to admit it, I am horrible at this game. At the time of writing, my personal record in solo play is 15 days. Pitiful I know.
One of the elements that drew me into the Don’t Starve Together community was the lore surrounding the game and its predecessor Don’t Starve. There are a lot of unanswered questions from the games that many fans have attempted to answer through theories.
My go-to survivor is Wilson. Why? I just like him. I’ve tried to play as other characters but Wilson is my favourite. Mainly because I like his design and his personality that has been hinted at in the cinematics.
I have played a fair amount of games with strangers and for the most part, it has been pretty fun. However, I personally prefer to play with friends. Particularly my best friend who keeps teasing me because of how bad I am compared to her and her boyfriend. I swear, I’m trying!
During the Autumn Steam sale, I got Don’t Stave as I felt that I needed to play it. While I enjoy it, I prefer playing with friends. Although that is mostly because they keep me alive.
Don’t Starve Together is a fun game whether you play alone or with friends. Not to mention the seasonal events. I highly recommend it.
