Fast Facts: Don't Starve

I animate Fast Facts for a Youtube channel called Lore. I cannot post this episode on my website but it is available for you by clicking the link in the placeholder.

I'll be honest, I wasn't impressed with Don't Starve. I played it for a few hours but it got boring quick. There's nothing appealing about scavenging, it was the main reason I disliked Monster Hunter Tri. Mining, cutting grass, and chopping trees is a time-wasting mechanic that I despise. It's not fun and it takes too long. 

Don't Starve didn't feel rewarding. It doesn't help that Don't Starve lacks a tutorial, I spent a lot of time wandering the world trying to figure things out on my own which isn't a bad thing if you have a lot of time and enjoy playing games blindly, but people like myself have limited precious time and I don't want to waste it by picking flowers and looking for flint. I guess I'm just one of those players that want to be given an objective, a time frame, and a gun. Give me that and I'll be on my way.

The gothic art style was pretty, the concept was interesting, but the lack of story had me disinterested. That's all I have to say about the game. Maybe I'll give the game another play after one of their future updates.
