Don't Starve

IGN
13 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Like most roguelikes, progress in Don't Starve oftentimes feels like a Sisyphean task. Time spent battling shadow creatures, building a farm, and ultimately, an inevitable death are rewarding once they get going, but failure to recognize success robs them of meaning.
  • Pros: Beautiful presentation, Robust crafting system, Interesting story bits
  • Cons: Little sense of reward or accomplishment, Menial tasks quickly become tedious
