As titles go, 'Don't Starve' seems to be offering you everything you need to know about the game about to unfold before you. Not exactly. Yes, this is a survival game. Yes, starving IS a concern. No, starving is not the thing most likely to kill you.

As Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist, you've made a terrible mistake. After striking a deal with a demon for forbidden knowledge, you're cast out to a mysterious and deeply hostile hinterland. It's fortunate that you're a scientist, as this game is offering you no clues and no hand-holding as you try to figure out how to survive in a series of randomly generated maps. When Don't Starve kills you, it kills you permanantly, so progression is tough. But if you keep at it you'll learn things like the fact that frogs aren't the easy targets you expect and sometimes trees take revenge when you chop them down. You'll figure out how to create science machines to help you. You'll get better at staying alive.

Heck, with this Mega Pack you can even stay alive in company, thanks to the inclusion of Don't Starve Together, a multiplayer expansion. You might even stay alive long enough to try out whole new environments and biomes in the Reign of Giants expansion, or figure out how to craft a boat and set sail for adventure around a dangerous and terrible archipelago.

It all plays out in a beautiful art style tinged with the dark whimsy of Tim Burton. Yes, Don't Starve is wicked stuff indeed.
