Exploring a tropical archipelago sounds ground, but it’s never that easy in Don’t Starve [official site]. 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! I don’t know what drives you to place these sweet little computer people in such hazardous situations, you monsters.

We just launched Don't Starve Shipwrecked on Steam and buoy are our merms tired!

It's been a long time coming and here we are! While Don't Starve Together was still just a twinkle in Wilson's eye, our friends at Capy have been quietly plugging away at Shipwrecked with us for quite some time now. We’re all excited for you to come aboard; but first we wanted give you some quick details.

We've decided to release Shipwrecked in Early-Access because similar to the Reign of Giants expansion before it; Shipwrecked is a substantial amount of content. In fact, much larger. With new characters, biomes, items, creatures,recipes and water exploration; just about everything in Don't Starve Shipwrecked is new. However, we still have a little further to go; but first, we want to get your feedback about the game. Like Don't Starve, Reign of Giants and Don't Starve Together, it's important for us to really get a feel for what you think so we can adjust and adapt to your feedback. You should have a good, solid game in it’s current state; a great experience on it’s own.

Not everything is quite sea-worthy yet. As mentioned, the game is fully playable and nearly complete, but the new playable characters are still to come, as well as the "boss encounters” and some other cool things we have planned. Since we need to get a better sense of balance and feedback, we want to get everything in a good place before we get those in for official launch.

As many of you know, originally Don't Starve: Shipwrecked was originally being designed a standalone DLC completely separate from Don't Starve and players would not be able to move between Shipwrecked and the original game. Due to community response we have since changed course and we are now steering the ship toward integrating the experience so that you may move between worlds! This is still in the works and will not be immediately available and will likely be in a version closer to launch. We are certainly going to want to test this before the final launch version, so expect integration to come a few updates before final version sets sail. This is going to take a bit of time though, so we will need to tread water for a little while as we get that in order, but we'll let you know the progress on this before we pull up anchor.

We're not going to give an official date for the final launch of the game at this time. Frankly we tend to add in more new cool stuff that we didn't consider before your feedback, and since our priority is always having the best launch-ready game possible; we often choose to add more stuff rather than push things out just to hit a deadline. We are aiming for Spring 2016; but, that's mostly so we have something to aim for. In the end it's really just going to be when it's ready. We're going to try; but we care about delivering what we promised much more than hitting a date. We don’t consider a game ready when it’s “done”; we consider it “done” when it’s ready.

If you don't enjoy sailing into the uncharted territory of early-access, you might want to consider waiting until we launch the game fully before you dive in.

As we are aft to do, we will be hanging out here on the forums, lurking in streams and watching YouTube videos trawling for feedback and bug reports.

All ashore that's going ashore!

PC Gamer

Announced back in August, the next major Don't Starve expansion will launch into Early Access on December 1. Dubbed Shipwrecked, the Early Access period will be fully playable, with "new seasons, creatures, biomes". New ways to die are also promised, which is just as well.

"As always, during early access we will be releasing regular updates containing new content as well as tweaks and bug fixes based on your input," a spokesperson for publisher Klei wrote on the game's forums. As the name suggests, Shipwrecked will have you spending a lot of time in boats, and hopefully not too much time drowning in the water outside of boats.

Don't Starve has seen a number of substantial additions since its initial release in 2013. The biggest one was Don't Starve Together, which is a multiplayer co-op version of the main game. Oh, and the Reign of Giants DLC was pretty decent too.

No word as yet on when the expansion will finish up in Early Access, and studio Capy Games is still working on world migration, which won't be available on December 1.

I know you all have been waiting for information on shipwrecked so I’ll get right to the point -
Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked will launch into Steam’s Early Access program on December 1st.

Phew. Ok, now that we’ve got that out of the way, here are some more words!

As with Don’t Starve and Reign of Giants, we’re going to be using early access up until the full release of Shipwrecked. Your feedback and suggestions were invaluable during the development of past Don’t Starve content and frankly, we’d be fools to not involve you again when it comes to the development of Shipwrecked.

The early access version of the game is fully playable, but there is still some work to be done. The initial version contains new seasons, creatures, biomes, and many other exciting ways to die. As always, during early access we will be releasing regular updates containing new content as well as tweaks and bug fixes based on your input. Remember, we’re listening, so join our forums and share your thoughts!

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.
