Don’t Starve is an interesting beast of a game. It takes mundane survival basics like making a fire and turns them into a compelling aspect of gameplay. Even the rather smelly task of following herds of Beefalo to pick up their glorious dung isn’t nearly as dull – or stomach churning – as it sounds. An important part of Klei Entertainment’s survival sim’s charm may be the completely open ended scope for experimentation, what with your only direction being to stave off hunger, but it does make getting started a little tricky for some. So in honor of the Don’t Starve Giants Edition, here is a quick set of five beginner tips for Don’t Starve to help you get a jump start on survival.
Note: These are not tips specific to the Giants DLC, they represent a selection of tips for totally new players.
