Donít Starve for PC, PS4 and XONE is a work of a Canadian game studio, Klei Entertainment, best known for Shank series.

Donít Starve for PC, PS4 and XONE is set in a wilderness (randomly generated for each game), where the main character - Wilson - is insidiously moved to by a cunning demon. The scientist and gentleman must use all his expertise and skills to survive in this hostile world full of dangerous beasts, and find a way to return home.
The player tries to help Wilson in his struggle against nature. The protagonist must build himself a shelter, gather food, ignite and sustain a fire, make tools and clothes. In a word - take care of everything, that helps him survive in this terrifying reality.
Making progress in the game is awarded with unlocking new playable characters. Each of them has distinctive special abilities, such as fire resistance or increased strength.
Following the example of the previous games of Klei Entertainment Studios, a large emphasis is put on humorous elements, which are evident e.g. in the appearance of the characters and locations, but also in various references to pop culture. The gameís 2D graphics is set in cartoon stylistics with a comic-like thick line.
