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.
Will this be the only release for today?
Well that was a little disappointing.
Is this game any good and who is it for?
You can actually play demo if you have Chrome. Look it up in the google ... store ... thing
I hate to be a Constanza but 11.99 on sale? Ouch! Hey, if the game is worth that then beautiful (a good enough game can be priceless) but I'm a tad weary of that possibility in this instance.

I've got my last $10 waiting on Settlers 3 but I'll give a stab at the demo and take a look. It certainly looks unique enough and that goes a long way for me.

It's amazing. I played the demo and watched a couple of Let's Play videos and, yep, it's THE game I want to buy this month. Will be waiting a couple of days until my next client check arrives and then it's MINE :)
Hard to tell much from the gameplay video.... apparently you can run around :p

Sounds interesting. Will keep an eye on it.

Would like a little more info on the updates/CD key requirement. I'm fine with its inclusion, but what does it mean if I use it? Limited installs? Tied to hardware? I'm thinking there must be a reason they require a key to provide updates?
looks pretty much like Deathspank... is the gameplay similar (sorry if it's written somewhere, I'm bad in reading)
not for me, hoping gog gets homeworld soon
Haven't heard about the game before, but I want to say that the visuals are indeed remarkable. Really hoping the gameplay is equally good. Wishlished for now, 'til I hear more on that department.

The devs address that on their site:

"WHY DO I NEED A KEY TO UPDATE THE STAND ALONE VERSION OF THE GAME?
We know you just want to be able to play the game, and we really want to make that as easy as possible.
The reason the updater needs a key is to handle the case where a key gets publicized. While we're happy to provide free updates to our players, we can't do that if our server costs become unmanageable. Having keys allows us to keep the costs associated with distributing the game to within a healthy limit.

You don't need a key to install the game on multiple computers, and you can even use the same key to update multiple devices.

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.

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.
