Don’t Starve expansion Hamlet tells a curly new tale in early access

Just when you thought you'd explored every nook and cranny of Don't Starve's nightmare otherworlds (plural), a new set of porcine problems present themselves. Hamlet, begining a quick spin through early access today, is another expansion for Klei's survival action RPG sandbox. This one takes Wilson and his sketchy pals to a new, far more civilised land. There's a town run by aristocratic pigfolk, trap-laden…

The 20 best survival games on PC

We’ve been battered by wave after wave of survival romps since Minecraft popularised the genre, with its deadly nights and groaning zombies, almost a decade ago. In its wake, we've been introduced to a cavalcade of punishing, persistent environments intent on putting us in an early grave. The masochistic impulse to put ourselves through the wringer for entertainment has spread to RPGs, management games, cosmic…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Steam’s Spring Cleaning Event wants you to clear your backlog… Or just try a bunch of new games instead

I'm not sure if Valve's latest promotional wotsit on Steam knows whether it's coming or going. On one hand, it's nice that the Spring Cleaning Event (running until Monday, 28th May) is nudging players into trying out games they may have bought in sales and never touched, but pairing that with nine simultaneous free weekend events does somewhat undermine the message. Ah well, it's an excuse to…

Feature: The biggest hits of the past 12 months

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Gettin’ piggy wit it! Don’t Starve: Hamlet announced

Klei Entertainment have announced Don't Starve: Hamlet, a new expansion for their fiendish survival game. Don't get any silly ideas about Danish princes or William Shakespeare (though an immortal bard would be a fiendish foe), as the expansion will focus on the simple and sensible idea of a town of aristocratic pigmen. A hamlet. It's a pun. Wordplay, you know? Jokes. The singleplayer expansion will…

Don’t Starve Together: A New Reign brings shadow queen, new bosses, further death

I was about to boot up Don't Starve Together [official site] to poke at the update A New Reign which went live yesterday. Then I remembered that I am bad at Don't Starve AND any and all of its iterations from vanilla onward. I die to bees a LOT when left to my own devices so Don't Starve Together is likely to be dying to…

After a journey spanning close to a year and a half, Klei's buddy-boasting survival 'em up Don't Starve Together [official site] has dragged itself from the icy grips of Early Access, and has now crawled into the barren plains of full release. As Klei's longest-dwelling Early Access-er, the co-op standalone ships with the Reign of Giants expansion in tow, as well as a handful of…

Developers Klei Entertainment had planned to give it free to existing Don't Starve owners once it left Steam Early Access to properly launch, but it seems they've got a little excited as they've now shunted it out to two million people (!)…

Don’t Knock It Till You’ve Tried It: Don’t Starve Together

FUN FACT: it's quite difficult for two or more people to starve in close proximity, because inevitably one will begin to eat the other. With that cheeriness in mind, I'm here to tell you that sign-ups are now open for the closed beta of top-down survive-'em-up Don't Starve's to-be-free multiplayer component. You don't even need to own Don't Starve to apply, as those accepted will be…

Come Die With Me: Don’t Starve Together

Don't Starve Together is the sort of stern instruction that was once delivered by frowning parents to their newly married offspring as they set out to find a partner for life. The ruddy-faced matron wouldn't tell her son to make sure he wooed a girl who always washed behind the ears, and the cracked lips of an aged farmer would not part to instruct his…
