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.
I don't understand the negative reactions on the first page, like "Huh, how disappointing, that's all we get today?"

Don't Starve is an awesome survival game, with lots of depth. I've been playing the beta for two weeks now and this is easily one of the best indie games released this year.

timppu: I personally hope GOG releases more and more indie games, like Mass Effect 2.
What are you talking about? Mass Effect 2 is not an indie game!
It's a DLC of Shattered Steel.

It's not against this game - it could be a great game - I think it's mostly just disappointment in the lack of good old games recently. (Nancy Drew and GC 1 being the only ones I'd consider old on the "New & Coming" tab. Obviously not everyone cares about that, though.

G-Doc, I'm still holding you to your "awesome games in May" statement. ;)

Well, if you see the reactions in the survey threads, they all predict doom in GOG's future. ;)
Oh wow!
I was actually so looking forward to this game that I ALMOST thought about buying it on Steam. Horrifying, I know.
So thank you, GOG, for sparing me that evil fate.
Bought.

Happens with every single game release. Even system shock 2 had some "disappointment" posts. It also happens with every sale and I'm pretty sure I even remember some complaints about the free games given away by GOG.

Entitlement will always leave a sour taste behind ;)

I'm generally happy anytime GOG gets a +1 in the catalog, although, admittedly, some offerings make me happier than others.

I guess you are upset with the quality of the titles? I don't remember a single week since I've been here where an old game hasn't been released. (save the immediate week following the xmas sales were NO games were offered).

Even after the announcement to start offering newerish titles, they increased the number of old games added each week.

I'm always perplexed when I see the "lack of good old games"... we have more than ever AND at the highest rate released ever, TODAY.

Where is the disconnect?

So why do I get no walking tanks in my ME2? Damn it, EA!

this, no matter what you do there will be someone bitching about something. They release a older title "oh it's not old enough", "it's not my cup of tea", "oh this game is a steaming pile, I thought you release GOOD games", they release a newer title "Oh where is the old games", "oh that's it, I'm not interested in this", "where's the linux version, guess I will go buy it off steam then" and so on. If they release a older title and a new title take your pick from any of the above. Fact is you can't win it's as the old expression goes "you can please some of the people some of the time but you will never please all the people all the time"

It does getting old seeing those posts though it's almost as annoying as the terraria fan base bitching about everything "what the hell, why did you stop with the free updates"(despite having been updated for free for over a year straight), updates resume "Oh look at this your giving us free updates again, well screw you. You greedy SOB(which kills me since it costing them nothing)" oh and yes there are people who have said he was greedy for resuming with the free updates, and then complaining about the updates themselves "oh what the hell all of this is just new content" and so on and so forth.

I think it is partially to the game already having been on the to be released list. It was simply a bit of a spoiled surprise. I was curious for novelty.

Agree with that.

I don't really understand why GOG is putting games like this on the 'To Be Released' List before they're released. IMO, it spoils the fun of guessing what's coming next and it's not as if there was a pre-order offer for this. Wish they wouldn't.
1. No soundtrack this time?

2. Has it already been published in Humble Bundle few months ago?

In this specific case, because it was up for pre-order on other sites as well. So instead of having to deal with "Damn it, I just bought it 2 hours ago from steam", they decide to use the New & Coming and list it there.

No, the game was officially released today. You would get access to the beta if you got it from steam, and it was also available from google store

I disagree. I want to know what is coming as it helps me budget and plan. GOG loses money anytime other distributors have a sale and I have no clue if GOG even plans to offer the title here.

If I know NOLF is coming soon, I might not buy the DROBO + hard drives that fully depleted my "spend" money for the next two months, for just one example.
