Don't Starve: Hamlet Early Access now available on Steam

Well, here we are! 

Today we launched Don't Starve: Hamlet into Early Access. Like our previous DLC for Don't Starve we will be using this time with Hamlet to gather feedback and put the finishing touches on the game. 

With the launch of Early Access we introduce Wilba and Roc:

  • Wilba: Daughter to Queen Malfalfa, Princess Wilba has the love of her people. If only she wanted the job. She would much rather be out in the world exploring and soaking up life, even if she still requires a nightlight when she gets tucked in.
  • ROC: There's something that moves above the clouds. No one talks about it. No one answers questions about it. Maybe that's cause they are just pigs. But it seems pretty freaking big.  Was that just your echo? or the lonely cry of 500 tonnes of bird?
Head over here for a full list of update notes. 

What happens next?

Between November the 8th and the launch currently planned for December, we will continue with more content and bug fix updates and prepare for the coming Aporkalypse.

Once again, thanks everybody for your support. Please enjoy Hamlet and keep sending us your suggestions and feedback!
