Don't Starve - My Side of the Mountain Survival?

Postby Izawwlgood » Fri Jun 14, 2013 2:37 pm UTC

Just picked this up on Steam and am having a blast with it. A lot of PAFO (Play And Find Out) style which can be frustrating ("Nope, a Grass Suit will not sufficiently protect against a Tall Bird" or "Sleeping Mats restore sanity AND give a hunger penalty eh?"), but the games got a dark sense of humor that's pretty fun to roll with. Anyone else play, and/or know of any other fun survival games?

Well, thank you for reminding me of that book I read in elementary school.

Yay someone else!
In the last 24 hrs I've spent maybe 6 playing the game... It's super addictive.

However, I'm kind of getting stuck. I can make stable food, get up to building a smallish fort with alchemy level tech, and plant a good farm of trees, crops, saplings, grass, but then... Just sort of peter out. What now? Do I gear up and go spelunking? I can't seem to figure out how to get the stuff for the third science machine (Shadow Manipulator?), and can't really tell what to do after stabilizing food, sanity, and protection.

I got the game after I saw this thread. Played for like an hour. Haven't quite gotten into it yet.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.
