Don’t Starvealike The Wild Eight Drops A Demo

You are the only survivor of a plane crash. The only things you have with which to stay alive are the 98 different-but-similar survival games installed on your laptop. Which one will you play until hypothermia takes you?

The Wild Eight is the latest addition to those swollen tree-feeling, rabbit-hunting ranks, but while the setup is familiar – plane crash, cold, angry wildlife – there are a couple of enticing twists to the formula.

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 new features – not least the debut of a long-awaited character.

*checks date*

It’s all just bloody lies, isn’t it? :(

Let’s write about something that happened at the end of yesterday instead. Yesterday is safe. Don’t Starve’s [official site] single-player expansion Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked came out of early access.

The aquatic latest expansion for Don’t Starve [official site] launched into Early Access in December and has picked up a few patches along the way, but what’s the grand plan for Shipwrecked? What’s coming next? Another biome, new characters, balance tweaks, and extra bosses including the Tiger Shark, according to creators Klei. They’ve shared more of their plans for Shipwrecked and its path to a proper launch, see. Knowing them, I bet that Tiger Shark is a bit more feline and horrendous than actual tiger sharks.

Shipwrecked, the latest expansion for Klei’s open-world crafty survival game, arrived last night with a boatload of new treats and threats in new lands. Also, boats!

If you are perhaps fond of not starving and are looking forward to not starving again—maybe while drinking fruity cocktails on a desert island—then you’d better mark your calendar for December 1st.

All Klei Games Free To Play On Steam This Weekend

If you haven’t been paying attention to Klei Entertainment’s creations for the past few years, you’re missing out on some of the best games in the world. This year’s Invisible, Inc. [official site], recently expanded in fine style, might be the best turn-based game I’ve discovered since I joined the Chess Club all those years ago, and Mark of the Ninja is a completely different but almost equally brilliant rewrite of the stealth genre. All of the studio’s games are free to play on Steam this weekend, starting right now, with discounts should you wish to buy them after having a taste.
