Don’t Starve starts off slow and punishing and continues to get even harder as you play. Its merciless difficulty coupled with its monotonous gameplay can leave some players feeling frustrated and bored. Those who enjoy a good challenge, however, will relish in the satisfaction they’ll get when they manage to outlive their previous record or clear the game’s evil Adventure mode. It may not be for everyone, but if you’re looking for a roguelike game filled with charm and challenge, be sure not to miss Don’t Starve.

Aside from ridiculously fun gameplay, Don't Starve's art style is eye-candy, reminiscing the feel of a Tim Burton movie adapted into a video game.

Don't Starve doesn't hold your hand at the start. You pretty much figure out what to do by yourself.
Oh look, that looks edible. And just like that, you could be dead.

It's a trial and error game with a flair of adventure. You could stumble upon something very interesting or dangerous. You may have met your potential pigman allies. Tread carefully as the world of Don't Starve is perilous and unfriendly. Most importantly, don't starve!

"Oh, i just bought this gam-" -Killed by a Bee.
"Ok, one more try" - Killed by a Bee.
"100 days!, 2 giants, 4 seasons, I'm invincible!" - Killed by a Bee.

The Tim Burton style fits this game perfectly, with a bit of survival, and fighting.

>You will fight Giants, Spiders, Metal Chess Things

>You will find Berries, Carrots, Bunnies

>You will have to kill the Bunnies to get Morsel, Pigs/Beefalos/Tallbirds (yes, birds that are, guess what, TALL) to get Meat, Spiders/Merms/Werepigs to get Monster Meat

>You will have to cook all of them if you want to survive.

>You will have to build a shelter if you want to survive.

>You will be INSANE, totally INSANE.

>You will see things. A lot of things.

>You will starve.

>But most importantly... YOU WILL DIE. A LOT.

This game is so addictive, while trying not to starve on the game you may starve in real life, you won't sleep and you will go insane keeping your charactor alive.
This should come with a health warning but the games name should be a reminder in itself, maybe add an ingame timer that saves the game and tells the player 'eat and go to bed' after they've been playing 20 hours.

If you have lots of spare time this game is definitly worth it's money.

Don't starve is a game that really grew on me.
It seemed very unforgiving at first, but when i learned my way around it, it felt very rewarding.

Then, just then i realized how challenging this game really is. I felt like i really had accomplished something.
It wasn't just delivered to me with flashy signs or arrows that indicated what i should do or when.

And this is without saying how beautiful the art and the music are in this game, which is only a plus side to the amazing gameplay that was carefully crafted.

Is it worth buying? Yeah, i don't know, can you handle being challenged to a frustration point? Because unless you took a look into the game's code, getting around the situations you will be put in, on the first attempt, will be extremely hard.
And if you care so much about beating a game like i do, you will get mad.

Personally, i feel like this game changed the way i see things, that the weird and bitter sometimes can become your biggest passion.

If Tim Burton designed Minecraft, this game is what you would get. It's a game focused on survival, just like Minecraft.
Everything is trying to kill you. I'm really bad at writing reviews, so her's the end of the paragraph
