  2. This game.
    by Jonah Getz, - Mar 12th 2015

    This is one of those games where you'll start playing and completely lose track of time, before you know it it's been 3 hours since you started playing.

  3. This game is really creative!
    by JaremGames, - Feb 5th 2014

    In my opinion „Don't Starve" is a great game for dope evenings, cause you can do everything. For example build some farms and machines. So, I really enjoyed!

  4. So Enganging and Addicting
    by Albouri Ndiaye, USA - Jan 7th 2014

    I usually don't write reviews, but this game warrants one.
    I am loving it so far after only 2 hours of gameplay and i haven't even scratched the surface. There is so much to look forward too. I can imagine all sexes and ages loving this game. I hope they make DLCs for it, just because i'm a greedy american who always wants more, but honestly it is a great game as is.

  5. Absolutely amazing!
    by flignou, Canada - Nov 28th 2013

    What was I doing with my free time before I found this game?… I can't really remember… It is absolutely amazing, cute yet a little bit creepy graphics, very fun to figure out ways to survive and even fun to find new ways to die! Endless hours of play! I highly recommend this game!

  6. Impressive but dull
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - Nov 23rd 2013

    It really is a very impressive game with a huge and growing world and lots of gadgets and things to collect. However, the game for me has been this: forage during the day and keep the fire going at night, or else you die.

    That's pretty much it.

    I don't enjoy it and especially don't enjoy dying frequently.

  7. A Gamer's game!
    by Oliver Oviedo, USA - Aug 31st 2013

    This game is amazing, and should be picked up by anyone serious about gaming. There are amazing innovations, and a real sense of immersion. The only thing is that you will die. And die again and again. It can be heartbreaking, but I keep coming back for more.

    Amazingly intelligent design, whimsical graphics, and a fully interactive, logical environment.

  8. Survive!
    by posed, Switzerland - Jul 31st 2013

    Wow, 'Don't Starve' is incredibly ridiculous good! The goal is to get out of this world, and believe me, it's huge. And it gets richer on every update. Yes, the game lives! There's so much to discover, even a Wiki is available for this game:; check it out! Take it serious and don't starve :)

  9. For fans of terraria and minecraft
    by don juan, USA - Jun 27th 2013

    An awesome game to get lost in, Possibly one of the best for low spec laptops also.
    A really wild environment which is constantly being updated and polished further so you know it'll get even better.

  11. What the…?!!!
    by Bicket Moon, France - May 3rd 2013

    I'll fail at Uni because of this game!

    A more hardcore Minecraft, more interesting where the word "survival" will take another dimension. Your goal: SURVIVE!!!
    Plenty to discover, plenty to fear as well. You never know what the game has in store to try to kill you.

    Warning! This is a die and retry type of game. Patience, cleverness and more patience are required to enjoy it.

    The learning curve is HUGE! The more you play, the more experienced you are and the longer you last because yes…the game will kill you sooner or later.

    Works perfectly on a MBP 2012 iCore7 8GB.
