I SERIOUSLY LOVE DON'T STARVE YOU GUYS, here, have some screenshots.



One winter, I was murdered by penguins. I still have no idea what I did to piss them off. In a subsequent game, penguins took over my base camp. The little icy area designates the penguin mating grounds. I was terrified to go near them, but they were right there on top of my fire pit, so I made an alternate base camp down by my touchstone, and had to stay there all winter being sad and cold and wearing flowers on my head to keep from losing my mind. I was really upset because this was the first time I have managed to get a really awesome base.

Then one day, I was up by the base getting some berries and I was attacked by hounds. Every 7-10 days, the master of the island sics his hounds on you. This is highly unpleasant. One of the ways I've died is that the hounds attacked in the night, and I tried to run away but my torch ran out and left me in complete darkness, at which point I was killed by the night monster (if you are in the dark for any significant length of time, I think like five seconds, you are going to die). So it was almost night and I couldn't make it back to my base camp, so I had to suck it up and risk it, and so I ran in circles around the penguins. The hounds attacked the penguins and the penguins killed them, and then they fell asleep in a penguin pile and let my light my fire and sleep in my tent. I still don't know if they were all NOW WE ARE FRIENDS or if I pissed them off somehow the winter I killed them and they are usually nice.

I love Wilson's observation on beefalo wool. Also look at the hilarious sad faces on the beefalo I shaved. SADDEST OF BEEFALO.

One night I was out exploring and there were a ton of fireflies. It was really pretty.

So in general, Willow is pretty easy to keep sane because fire makes her sane, so if you stand in the fire at night you are generally not insane. However, sometimes you do something during the day that makes you very insane (I had found a bunch of evil flowers and stood around them too long figuring out what they were surrounding), and then you cannot stand in the fire because these terrifying shadow hands come up and try to steal it. As if this is not bad enough, creepy music box music is playing while this is going on, and there are eyes out in the darkness, and you can hear creepy whispering in your head.

AAAAAAAAAAH

If you go even more insane, your nightmares legitimately come to life and kill you. This has happened to me; it is kind of my favorite death. What happened was, I chopped down too many trees at once and one of them turned into an ent and started chasing me. It was night, so I had to stay by my fire, and this ent chased me around the fire all night. Wilson is a scientist with delicate scientific sensibilities, so this drove him completely out of his mind, and the next morning my nightmares came to life and they ate me. I think ALSO hounds were attacking.

IT WAS AWESOME.

*laughs* This game sounds like the BEST THING EVER. Those beefalo! Their expressions kill me!

Is that the name of it? Don't Starve?

Insanity and great graphics, count me in!

Yes, the actual name of the game is Don't Starve. The most hilarious thing is that I have never starved because something else always kills me before I run out of food.

Hrm. And here I was sitting on money in my Stream account and figured I'd never have anything to spend it on!

I AM HAPPY TO BE OF SERVICE. It has the same annoying thing all the games there do, where you have to be logged in to play a game that there is no reason to be logged in to play, but it is fun enough for me that I suck it up. I hope you enjoy it also!

One time I was fighting a Deerclops which I did not want to do but I was afraid the Deerclops would wreck my REALLY AWESOME BASE. It was the really awesome base I sent a picture of. ANYWAY. Deerclops. I was fighting it, and I was doing OK probably because TINY VIKING IS TOUGH AND HAS A VIKING HAT. But fighting the Deerclops made me go ALL THE WAY CRAZY. Like I have never seen this much crazy. I was so crazy that for a while I think I was like "Oh no Deerclops is my friend" because I could not attack Deerclops, only examine Deerclops.

FORTUNATELY, killing makes Wigfrid sane, so I got saner after I killed the Deerclops, which I think only worked because maybe he was bugged and not hurting me bad enough or something. Then I got some more saner inventing things with my science machine. Then I got my health back eating things with honey in them. Then like five days later the goose moose thing killed me, and I had no touchstone so I was dead.

I HAVE NEVER EVEN SEEN THE DEERCLOPS EXCEPT IN VIDEOS AND I KNOW ONE DAY IT WILL COME FOR ME AND I AM TERRIFIED and that is why I am still too much of a coward to play Reign of Giants.

I laughed very very hard at OH NO DEERCLOPS IS MY FRIEND. I am seriously so terrified of that thing.

That game up there the only reason I survived so many days was there were two touchstones on the same map. This was awesome for me but probably not for Wilson who was like OH GOD HOW MANY TIMES CAN HOUNDS KILL ALI?

A lot of times is how many.

Psst. Steam has it on sale for 75% off for the next 12 hours! That puts the price at $3 and change.

[livejournal.com profile] thistle_chaser sent me over here because I too am currently hooked on Don't Starve. Though you are clearly FAR superior to me since I've barely made it 8 days at a time (I keep getting impatient and taking stupid risks). Anyway, I need more LJ friends to talk about Don't Starve with...mind if I friend you? Feel free to come poke around my LJ and let me know.

I am not on livejournal a WHOLE lot, but I will totally scream in all caps about Don't Starve with you when I AM here. It's basically that and pictures of my cats right now. I am That Girl.
