After hours of toiling away in Don’t Starve, I’m finally starting to get a bit better.
Of course, I should preface this by saying “better” doesn’t necessarily mean “good.” I’m still having a lot of trouble with the game, because it’s unlike any other survival title I’ve ever played. It will treat you harshly, because fuck you, that’s why.
However, I’ve noticed that I’m getting better at figuring out what to do and where to step. I’ve learned to stay out of swamps; I’ve learned that if I stop moving,dogs will attack. I’ve also learned not to attack the things like beehives or spider web pods, because those will vomit forth death beasts who will destroy you.
I still haven’t really figured out how to use things like hay walls, and I’ve yet to survive long enough to actually build and use a farm. But I’m sure I’ll get the hang of those things out eventually.
The important thing is that even though Don’t Starve hates me, I’m not going to let it win.
