A cabin in the woods, how charming!

Don't Starve, a wilderness survival sandbox game with many original ideas, item crafting, and remarkable visuals, is available 20% off on GOG.com. That's only $11.99 for the first two weeks!

Don't Starve is a game focusing on your wilderness survival skill. Cast in the middle of unwelcoming wild you will need to learn to take care of yourself without all the commodities and luxuries that our civilization provides. It's back to the basics! You need to gather supplies, hunt, avoid dangers, and learn how to make a living in the harsh realm that became your new home. When you're alone in the woods death can come to you in many different ways. A simple cut might prove to be just as dangerous as a forest fire. But your most lethal and persistent enemy is hunger. What am I going to eat today--that's going to be your first thought every day. You might be reduced to gnawing on tree-bark, but whatever it takes: Don't Starve. Who knows, if you live long enough, you might even discover the dark secrets, hidden away from human sight, where no man dares to go.

Get your basic survival gear and a one-way ticket to the middle of nowhere, for only $11.99 on GOG.com, and once you get there remember: Don't Starve! The release special offer lasts for two weeks, that is until Tuesday, May 7, at 12:59AM GMT.

faugn: Sorry GOG, another game I will buy from Steam or maybe a Humble Bundle because of Linux support...
Oh no, another one of those...
When so many others can deliver both binaries, so should you GOG.
Not delivering seems more and more just like bad excuses.

What about the whining? Go Steam/HIB already. I really don't get all this complaining. You like it more somewhere else? What is the problem then, go there. All happy: you will have a game you like on linux and we are free of your crying.
GOG knows their business and I am sure they know what they are doing. If you know better how to run a Digital Store with games, noone stops you from doing so.
All in all, I appreciate people stating their opinions, but come on, this particular topic is getting tiring...

I think it's important for GOG know why some people isn't buying from them. And if it's getting repetitve, well, it's one of the most voted feature on the wishlist, so why your whinning O_o.

I am not whining, I won't repeat myself under every indie game release post. It's one thing to state one's opinion and the other announce it on every possible opportunity.
And about GOG "knowing" what's going on, i wouldn't worry about it. I am sure they know their business stuff better than you or me :)
Will the GOG version require the Chrome browser to play? As I do not use Chrome, I prefer to play the game outside of a browser.

Yeah, I think when it comes to new indie game, not providing Linux versions is not smart.

They really should go with the limited linux support (at this time only new games and only versions provided by the devs, without the support from the gog team).
This game is magnificent. Brilliant on so many levels. It makes me play a computer game in the gamelessest period of my life.

That being said, I'm still not very good at it. Not reaching day 10 yet, barely scratching the surface, not even dreaming of starting to build walls and stuff. But hey, didn't FTL (and to some extent Project Zomboid) feel a bit like that in the beginning too ?

Once I remembered that hounds come on about day 6-7, my survival rate rocketed upwards ;)

Well, yes. My last death was my first encounter with a couple of hounds. I do't know if I'd have been able to defeat them (with my wood armour and my spear), but, given my physical state (I had to fight a very territorial tall bid next to my camp, and I don't have any way to heal my wounds for now), I had preferred to run. They ate me while I was trying to jump into a wormhole.

Not sure I'm quite ready to pass the 6-7th day limit yet.

Clearly I've been having a very easy run recently...but I have been playing since last year.

Only way to heal up I've found that's marginally better than eating ALL OF TEH FLOWERS is spider glands; just there's often a spider between you and a gland.

And that is one of the reasons I love Don't Starve.

No. Nothing on GOG requires anything else to play, as it's a DRM-free games site :)

The game will just download to your computer like every other game on GOG and then you can play whenever and wherever you want. No Chrome required.

Hope that helps? :)

Thanks. This looks like a very tough game ... but has a lot of interesting mechanics. I am tempted to buy it.
