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.

G-Doc: The keys are only used for automatic updates, but all the updates will also be made available separately here, on GOG.com if you don't want to use the auto-updater.
Seems like pretty much the perfect implementation of an auto-updater+cd key system to me. Optional, available for our convenience.


Isn't this game by the same guys that did Mark of the Ninja? Because that was one of my favorite games of last year. Or, like, ever.
We're getting Dyad tomorrow, so there will be the same number of releases this week, just stretched out across the week.
Minecraft without the bricks - yeahhhh ok I am sold - cheers GOG

Love a Tim Burton Looking game anyway :-)

G-Doc: snip

If you would like to disable the updater, the first dialog box that pops up has a check box titled "Disable Updates". Check that and you should never be bothered by it again."

Bottom line:

The keys are only used for automatic updates, but all the updates will also be made available separately here, on GOG.com if you don't want to use the auto-updater.

hedwards: OK, so if we buy the game we don't need the CD Key. You had me worried there for a moment that you'd given up on DRM free.
Yeah, same here. Glad that's cleared up

Yep. Loved that game too :)

By the way, Don't Starve seems to have huge replayability possibilities. You die quite often, so the challenge is to see how many days you can survive the next time around and, with a random world generating every time you play a new game, it's unlikely you'd get bored with it any time soon.

All I know is everyone I know that bought it started off thinking "Meh, it'll be worth a few hours" and are now hopelessly addicted :)
this being the only release today is a disappointement. This is a cool game, of coursse, but releasing this game here didn't require that much work as other games, so I don't really understand the 'shortage'.

And the server cost thing is actually a decent excuse as long as we CAN get the updates without any form of DRM from GOG. Neat.
This looks good, but how does it play ? Also, is this an actual horror game ? Because the screenshots look more like a horror parody...
Don't you know if there is possibility to get GOG key instead of steam key when I purchased early-access?

And I still have one Chrome/Steam key combo not redeemed yet - if somebody is interested:

It's great to see this game on GOG, but it's a pity that the GOG release is inferior to the dev's own (through the Humble Store). For the same price, that gets you a stand-alone installer, a Chrome key and a Steam key. No extras, granted, but the only extras in the GOG release are wallpapers and avatars, none of which I care about.

The only thing the GOG release has over the Humble Store release is that the GOG release goes up to the full price in 2 weeks, while the Humble Store release goes up to the full price in 2 hours.

No, it's not a horror game. It can be somewhat scary at times, but it's quite tongue-in-cheek. As you say, more of a horror parody.

As for how it plays, think Minecraft in 2D with less security, more humor and higher difficulty.

DLC, man. They stopped bringing the games because of DLC.

Sounds good to me :) Will probably pick it up on the first sale.
