Isn’t it nice when two great developers come together to brutally murder you? Two groups whose work you admire and appreciate sit down with a bottle of brosé and a notepad and ask themselves “How can we really screw you?” Boats, is the answer.
Don’t Starve [official site] developers Klei Entertainment have teamed up with Capy, the gang behind Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Super Time Force, for the next expansion to their sandbox survive ’em up. It’s named Shipwrecked, and you can guess how that works out.
“With new playable characters, biomes, creatures and seasonal effects; Wilson and the whole Don’t Starve cast of characters embark on a sea-bound journey of exploration, adaptation and of course, starvation,” they say.
That’s about all they have to say for now, but I’m sure you can imagine your own horrible deaths.
Shipwrecked is due this autumn on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It will be a single-player expansion, though Klei have been quite good about rolling SP expansion content into the co-op Don’t Starve Together so I wouldn’t be surprised to see it sailing over there later too.
Have a hint of horrible things to come:
