Don’t Starve managed to become one of the better surprise hits to come in recent years, but Klei Entertainment isn’t done yet. In partnership with CAPY, a new expansion, Shipwrecked, is now up for grabs on Steam Early Access. Selling for $4.99, this new expansion will take on a more tropical theme as Wilson learns to contend with new biomes, creatures, and behaviors of seasons. Selling for $4.99, this expansion includes ship building, ocean sailing, and all new recipes. Along with this comes a whole host of new challenges as the game’s famous difficulty will do its best to see our lonely hero murdered in agonizingly delightful ways.
A few caveats, though. First, this is an expansion; the base game will be needed to play. That said, it currently plays separate from the base game. Integration with the original will be added, though. Second, this is a Windows only product right now. Mac and Linux will be added in the (hopefully near) future. Still, five bucks seems to be a reasonable price for more content added to this deceptively deep and entertaining title.
