You play as Wilson the Scientist in Don't Starve, this tough wilderness survival game blends science and magic as you try to survive long enough to escape. Don't Starve has a very unique hand drawn art style and with permadeath or only one life per game it really ratchets up the tension.
Pro Challenging arcade style game play, with permadeath
Don't Starve is a classic example of "Easy to play, tough to master". The game play is very easy to learn, in fact Don't Starve doesn't really tell you how to play, you just point and click. Some items will be clickable, exploration leads to discoveries, and discoveries lead to longer survival, but death and a new game are always right around the corner.
Pro Uniquely atmospheric art style
Don't Starve has a very unique art style, using two dimensional or 2d characters and items in a 3d world gives a very interesting artsy feel to the game. The hand drawn look and feel to the graphics are a nice change of pace from ultra realistic games, but it doesnt take away from the suspense.
