Hey everyone! I’m Corey Rollins from Klei Entertainment, and I’m here to talk about our newest PS4 downloadable game: Don’t Starve. It’s available tomorrow on PlayStation Store for €13.99/£11.99 and it’s free for PlayStation Plus members.

If you’re new to the game, Don’t Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic. While there are many unique characters to discover and unlock along the way, you’ll start as the gentleman scientist, Wilson. After being lured with infinite knowledge by a demon named Maxwell, Wilson finds himself trapped in a mysterious and unforgiving world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.


Don’t Starve is a game that gives no instruction, and forces players to adapt or die in the process. And oh my, die you will! After every death, a new world is procedurally generated, and you’ll find yourself scrambling to gather resources, explore the world, encounter bizarre creatures, and play your own way to unravel the mysteries around you.

One of the biggest features of the console edition is the inclusion of every single update since the game’s PC launch. After Don’t Starve’s original release, we committed to releasing regular content updates every three weeks for six months. In the PS4 version you’ll have them all right from day one, including the massive Caves update and the discoverable “Adventure Mode” which will let you embark on a journey through multiple randomly generated unique worlds in an effort to escape.

Alright folks! You’re ready to begin your quest as esteemed intrepid explorers and champions of science! We’ve poured a ton of love into this game and developed it alongside a vibrant community throughout the beta and post release content updates.

If you’ve got any questions or want further tips, come say hello on Twitter. We’re always around and happy to chat. After all, this game wouldn’t be what it is today without the amazing discussions and feedback from our friends in the community.

Had a quick go of this. I quite like it. It has Minecraft qualities, and im not just talking about the obvious cooking and crafting. Theres a definite thrill in discovery, just like Minecraft. Doesn't beat Minecraft, but then theres not many games that do.

I love it on day 3 or 4 on my first game, I have played it on PC so knew what I was doing. Think the lack of a tutorial is a little daft.

I seem to have ran out of wood and trees so think I'll die when I next play :D

I had one go of this, played it for about 10 minutes and I died, had no clue what was going on. I shall have to try and get back to it at some stage and spend a bit of time trying to get my head around it, lol :D

Watch some of the Twitch apps on the ps4. I was chuffed I got to 9 days. Some of these people have lasted a hell of a lot longer than my paltry 9 days.:oops:

I think 14 days days my best run, I am sure I could do better but I always cock up at some crucial point. Given it up a bit now because the remaining trophies are a complete ball ache to get and the game is too random to get much sense of achievement in.
